We don’t know the numbers yet, but the Alps have seen one of the best December snowfalls for many years.

The amount of snow coming down in France in particular has been quite incredible.  Even more so given that on December 5th there was so little snow that the Daily Mail and Metro were running scare stories about the impending snowless season.

(As it goes, after the record snowfalls in Colorado in November, the Mail has now moved its sights onto US resorts.)

To be fair, even we at Skipedia were doing some lateral thinking on the future of the industry.   So, let’s just all enjoy these amazing European conditions right now:
