With over a foot of fresh snow dumped on mountains across Europe during this latest storm, the Stubaier Gletscher ski area in Austria will begin their winter 19/20 operations this Friday, 13th September.
So far, the upper elevations have seen the best part of 2-feet of snow, allowing the resort to announce on Facebook this morning their forthcoming opening day.
Four glacial areas across Europe; Passo Stelvio, Zermatt, Saas-Fee, and the Hintertuxer Gletscher are all still open and have all benefitted from this recent storm.
Further north in Norway, the Galdhøpiggen Sommerskisenter on Scandinavia’s highest mountain re-opened this weekend, after a 16″ snowfall. Normally open from spring to late Autumn, it was forced to close in July due to extreme heat but has now been able to reopen thanks to the colder weather and fresh snow, according to snow-forecast.
