its been snowing nearly a week, and in Western Austria as well as in eastern Switzerland they havent had this much snow in a November ever since 1952! (up to two meters of fresh in area's. 'only' 150 cms in others) Most high resorts decided to open for the weekends already, ahead of schedule.

france is a bit lagging, but will get dumped on as of from today. not as epical as the eastern parts of the alps, but... season has started, and started big!
