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…

Europe’s snowiest resort, Warth-Schröcken, looks like it’s trying to keep up its reputation

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

Engelberg, Switzerland


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

CairnGorm, Scotland


Yes, even the Scottish hills have benefitted from the cold spell. Here’s CairnGorm looking suitably wintery.

Grandvalira, Andorra


Over in the Pyrenees Grandvalira is ready for the season, with 100cm (yes, you read that right) of fresh snow reported.

Verbier, Switzerland


The Swiss resort of Verbier clocked in 30cm of fresh snow to transform it into a winter wonderland.

Ischgl, Austria12248216_10153864617370649_8627718095530584848_o

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.

Val Thorens, France


Heavy snowfall caused Val Thorens to delay its opening until the 28 December.
