The glacier at Tignes was set to open from the last weekend in September but increased summer temperatures have meant this will be postponed until more snow has fallen, leaving at present no skiing in France, this said it is getting colder and non-skiable glaciers have had a dusting.
Switzerland saw nearly 50cm of snow fall at the beginning of September, some of this down as low as 1500m, currently there are two resorts open (the most in Europe!) Saas Fee and Zermatt, which have already been open for 10 weeks! both have also had a fresh dusting in the last couple of days and look like great options for those looking for some early season snow.
Passo Stelvio, near Bormio has seen some heavy snowfall since the start of September, 10cm alone in the last couple of days and has 6 runs open in total.
