Switzerland snowfall two to five times normal

Robert,

Below is a map from www.slf.ch which shows the % of snowfall across Switzerland as compared to the long-term mean.
1942

 

Schneehöhe im Vergleich

 

As you can see, several areas are more than 200% of normal, with a few stations over 500%.

Still early, but I think the data last year was exactly the same.

So, whether it's due to global warming, PDO/AMO shifts or just highlighting high early snowfall levels at sunspot minimum, it seems that we're having some 'local difficulty' in explaining why ski resorts will all open up this weekend to bumper conditions.

Regards,
Rhys Jaggar
