Another meter (more than 3 ft) of snow forecast for Easter.
Snow depths in the Alps are currently at the deepest they’ve been for many years at some resorts. Avoriaz already has the deepest snow base in France at 4.8 metres (16 feet), whilst Engelberg in Switzerland has the deepest snow base in the world at 6.6 metres (22 feet).
It’s unusual for bases to continue to build after mid-March as usually the snow starts to thaw faster than new snow can fall, however this year it seems likely that bases will continue to grow in to April.
Avoriaz says it expects 65cm of snow by Friday and nearly a metre by this time next week.
