We're back at Style Altitude HQ in the French Alps, the webcam's back on and the clock's ticking. Winter IS coming..

So you don't need to miss out on the kaleidoscope of changing colours as autumn progresses into winter. Already we've seen a vid of snow on the Col du Galibier and there's a dusting of snow visible at high altitude.

BUT don't get too excited. OK, yes, get excited because winter is coming but just remember that early snow doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be a long snowy winter. Not according to stats of past winters in the Alps, anyway. Check out our Snow Forecast for the Alps Winter 2019.

Of course, we now have climate change to factor in which, although not good news for lower resorts with warmer temperatures, it can mean more precipitation and, therefore, powder up high. But, no, that does NOT mean yay to climate change...
