As we look forward with excitement to the coming ski season, it’s also worth taking a moment to remember the epic conditions of winter 2017/18. As one of the snowiest European winters in living memory, many ski resorts reported the highest level of snowfall in 30 years, if not longer.

While the sheer volume of snow may have forced some resorts to temporarily close their slopes due to avalanche risk, on the whole it was a year of amazing conditions and lots of the lovely white stuff.

We take a look back at the 2017/18 season to find out just how much snow fell, which resorts experienced the highest snowfall and, perhaps most importantly, the weather outlook for winter 2018/19.
