In the Alps there are many unofficial guesstimates of several feet (50-100cm) of new snow at resorts like Chamonix and Meribel where skiers and boarders have been hiking up to ski down the slopes.
However other than Tignes - where conditions are reported to be much improved with the new snow and skiing down to Val Claret - unless anyone breaks ranks, it looks like we still have to wait another 10 days for the first to open, Val Thorens on November 21st.
