This will surprise no one, considering the volume of snow still on the ground in Avoriaz right now. But Avoriaz has officially been named as the snowiest Alpine resort during the winter 12 / 13 season. There was a staggering 11.7 metres of snow at resort level in Avoriaz, and an absolutely huge 13.49 metres at 2200 metres. That is a LOT of snow, almost 50% above average! And as the picture above from the lads at Doorstep Skis shows, it’ll take a while for the remaining snow to disappear.
These stats come from a fascinating season review on the Weather to Ski website, written by Fraser Wilkin. Read the full report.
