There’s been heavy snowfall again in the Alps, particularly in the past 24 hours. A fortnight after the three weeks of heavy snow that brought the Eastern Alps (Austria, Germany and Eastern Switzerland) to a standstill, this time it’s the turn of the Western Alps, France and Western Switzerland in particular, to get the big dumps. The biggest 24 hour accumulation reported so far is at the small resort of Cordon in the Northern French Alps with 70cm (2 feet, 4 inches) of snowfall. Les Marécottes – Salvan in the Swiss Valais region over the border has posted the second biggest at 65cm (2 feet, 2 inches).
