We are happy to say that the Alpe d’Huez snow report for October is good. The early season snow continues to build on the higher slopes with new, fresh falls lower down.
The weather is getting chilly with midday temperatures in Alpe d’Huez around 0°C.
There is 20 to 35 cm of snow forecast above 1800m and 10 to 15cm around 1400 to1500m.
This is falling on an already better than average base for this time of year. It is between 30 and 70cm at altitude and you would have to go back to 2013 or 2000 to find equivalent October depths.
Lets hope this signals an excellent year for snow.
