..Fresh snow brings August skiing in Europe
______________________________


20 Aug 08 - Remarkably, ski areas in Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland have all reported fresh snow falling at times over the past fortnight.

The Tux glacier in Austria was amongst those recording fresh snowfall in the past week, topping up snow depths on the glacier to 105cm

In  Italy, Passo Stelvio has the most skiing available in the country at present. Sitting up at 2760 metres, the bottom lift station is the highest lift base in Europe, with trails up to 3450 metres, giving a near 700 metre vertical. The current snow depth varies between one and three metres with fresh snow a few weeks ago.

Recent snowfalls bring glacier snow depths to around 190cm at Matterhorn Ski Paradise in Switzerland
