…Switzerland’s two open glacier ski areas have seen remarkable August snowfalls with Saas Fee reporting 45cm (18 inches) of new snow on Sunday, with more falling since, including another 5cm (two inches) yesterday.

Saas Fee describes current conditions as “packed powder” and has a 1.6m (5.3 foot) base with terrain park and half pipe open.

Want to escape the valley heat? Boreal Mountain Resort will offer a Northern California rarity: Snow skiing in July.
This weekend, the popular resort off Interstate 80, will re-open its Castle Peak Quad chairlift for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy a ribbon of white, leftover from spring’s record snowfall.

Most people consider summer a time to wear shorts and thongs wherever one pleases, with little thought of ski jackets or snowboards. However Victoria’s Mount Baw Baw saw a light dusting of snow, and it’s already two weeks into summer.
