There has been little new snow in the Alps - unsurprisingly for mid-June - but Passo Stelvio in Italy and the Stubai Glacier, both currently open for snow sports have each reported 5cm of snow in the past seven days.
Temperatures have been hovering a few degrees above zero on the glaciers - typical late Spring conditions. Tux has one of the biggest ski areas open with 22km of runs on a 2 metre base.
French summer skiing is reported to have re-commenced at Val d'Isere last weekend and the other two areas, much bigger at Tignes and les 2 Alpes are due to re-open this weekend.
Italy and Switzerland
In Italy Val Senales re-opened last weekend joining Passo Stelvio and the Presena Glacier - which has two red runs available. In Switzerland only Zermatt is currently open.
Norway's three summer ski centres are in full swing and boasting some of the world's deepest snow depths, particularly Folgefonn with 710cm on upper slopes - deeper than anywhere else in the world. In Sweden it's coming up to the last weekend of the season and the last chance to try summer skiing under the midnight sun at Riksgransen in the Arctic Circle and Ruka in Finland finally closed last weekend.
The USA continues to have more ski areas open than any other country, although the huge snowpack is slowly thawing now and Australia and Argentina or Chile may change that after the weekend. You can still ski at Mammoth in California, Arapahoe basin in Colorado and Timberline in Oregon daily and at weekends at Crystal Mountain in Washington state or Snowbird and newly re-opened Snowbasin in Utah.
In Canada you can still ski on Grouse Mountain above Vancouver at weekends and Whistler's glacier ski season begins this weekend. Mt Washington on Vancouver Island is also re-opening this weekend but for one weekend only.
The ski season got underway at the weekend in Australia and at Afriski, Lesotho, in Southern Africa where access roads were blocked by too much snow (30cm) and limited facilities to clear it.
Australian resorts have reported the best start to the season in 10 years. Mt Buller is typical reporting, "a fair to good cover of firm packed snow softening throughout the day." There is an average of 26cms of natural snow and up to 45cms in manmade areas.
The ski season in South America is due to kick off this weekend but resorts in New Zealand have had to delay opening for a second week due to on-going warm conditions.
