The clock's ticking till we're back up the hill ski touring and making first tracks again. With the temperature plummeting in the Alps at the moment we're hoping it won't be long.
You can't have missed the flurry of news about La Nina forming. But although this weather system's effect on the USA and Canada are evident in meteorological records, how likely is it to influence snow fall in the Alps?
If you check out our long range weather forecast you'll discover from historical snow fall figures whether there is any actual connection between La Nina and snow levels in Europe.
Currently, though, more concerning is the rise in coronavirus cases in Europe since opening the flood gates to summer tourists. Another lockdown might just be on the cards soon in France because, yes, it's inter-season and tourism will hardly be affected - and then, as infections reduce they can unlock again for December.
But will the travel situation and ski resorts really be back to normal? Is it sensible to book now before the prices crank up? We've looked into a rather murky crystal ball (and asked some experts including Simon Hudson, Tourism Professor and author of the book COVID-19 & TRAVEL) to come up with a picture of what to expect for winter 2020-2021. Read all about it here.
