Very Early Snow in the Alps

Over the last few days it’s been snowing over the higher peaks in the Alps. Considering yesterday was only the 1st September, this is incredibly early snow! It definitely feels like winter is in the air.

With some warmer weather set to return in the week this snow will not stick around for long, but nice to have seen it all the same!

It has been a long, hot summer in the Alps with sadly a lot of snow melting off the glaciers. This also meant that several of the summer ski areas were forced to shut early.

Check out the snow falling in Val Thorens – enough to get us excited for the winter ahead!

So what does this mean for winter 2017/2018? In all honesty, the answer is nothing. A snowfall this early will not stick around, it is more just a little tease to get us excited for winter. There are all sorts of old wives tales we’ve heard recently from the old, local Morzinois to suggest a cold winter ahead. We’ve heard everything from the swallows indicating an early migration, to the large number of wasps (which there are) and the large number of mice (apparently also true) – all apparently indicators of an abnormally cold winter. Fingers crossed they are right!
