4 Jun 10 - At Storlien-Visjövalen ski resort in central Sweden, the last of the snow finally melted away on Wednesday, making it the longest continuous period of snow cover in the region for at least 60 years, according to the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI).

The area around Storlien-Visjövalen, near the Norwegian border, received its first snowfall on September 29th last year.

Not only Storlien, in parts of southern Sweden this winter's snow cover lasted longer than in any year since the 1970s or 1980s.

Because of a long period of cool weather and heavy precipitation, snow cover is still increasing in higher elevations in the Alps.

Austria's Sonnblick, more than 3,000 meters above sea level, now has 665 cm of snow depth, a June record.
