Eight of our favourite snowy pics from around Europe

From the Pyrenees to the Scottish Highlands Europe’s mountains are coated in a blanket of our favourite four letter word…

It came! The snow actually came! And more is on its way. But we’re trying not to get too fired up because… Screw it! We’re excited. And these snowy pics aren’t going to help quell our stoke levels…

Tignes got hit with so much powder (80cm!) that the lifts got iced shut for three days.

With 60cm of snow depth and the glacier opening daily from 25 November, Engelberg is a safe bet for an early-season shred.

Austria didn’t get the biggest snowfall, but with Ischgl due to open on Thursday the 10cm of fresh will be more than a little welcome.
