The Pyrenees did especially well with up to 95cm at La mongie and the snowfall has continued without interruption since Sunday.

The heavy snowfall in the Southern Alps was important for two reasons. First the quantity - for example 55 cm of fresh snow fell in 48 hours on the Val d'Allos on Monday and Tuesday and secondly because these falls have finally covered the whole of the Southern Alps and in particular the Alpes Maritimes and Alpes de Haute Provence where ski resorts offered a far less snow than their counterparts in the Hautes-Alpes

The Northern Alps, which have already seen record snowfalls in January, have continued to do well with 10 Powder Alarms issued on Tuesday for 20cm+ falls by ski resorts in Haute Savoie (30cm in Combloux, 20 cm in Les Houches ...) and Isère (20cm at Les 2 Alpes).

Mother Nature has hardly been generous so far with the Vosges mountains and even if it actually snowed last night, the amount of snow in recent days remain low: 10 cm in Gerardmer, 5 cm in Saint Maurice sur Moselle, Lac Blanc and La Bresse Hohneck .

Similar situation in the Jura where only 10 new centimetres of snow fell last night on the ski area of Monts Jura. Meanwhile, Les Rousses resort enjoyed a small drop of 5cm.
