Around 18 glacier ski areas are currently open to enjoy it all in the four main Alpine nations, although the extreme winter weathers has led to temporary closures of some areas so it is of course important to check ahead before you arrive.
In Italy Bormio - which isn't open yet - reported the biggest falls with a 60cm accumulation over the past week. The Presena Glacier above Passo Tonale has opened however joining Val Senales and Passo Stelvio, which is currently reporting the world's deepest snow base with 200cm lying, to give three choices in the country. But Stelvio is due to close on Monday, 1st November. But there'll be a fourth option from Saturday when Cervinia opens for the season.
Austria continues to have the most skiing available at the moment with eight glacier ski areas open. The Dachstein Glacier has finally re-opened after being unexpectedly closed due to lack of snow for two months. It has had 20cm of fresh snow and now has a 40cm base.
Solden, which hosted the opening outdoor World Cup events in the Northern Hemisphere last weekend also has lots of snow, but the Hintertux glacier currently has more slopes open than anywhere with 44km of runs, a 600m vertical and a 1.55m (five foot) base with 40cm of that fresh powder.
You can also ski or board on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier above Kaprun, at Pitztal, on the Stubai near Innsbruck or at Molltal and Kaunertal.
Switzerland has five glaciers open at Diabelerets, Diavolezza near St Moritz, Engelberg, Zermatt and Saas Fee - the next stop on the World Cup circuit.
In France, Les 2 Alpes is open this week only, joining Tignes, before it re-closes for three weeks then re-opens for the winter.
