The latest information appears to predict a “La Nina” and positive “North Atlantic Oscillation” (NAO+) which would forecast a colder than normal start to the season (which is great for freezing the ground so the first snowfall sticks) followed by a mild, wet winter which normally brings abundant snow to the higher ski resorts, such as Chamonix, Val d'Isere, Tignes. 

 

Last season was an El Nino and NAO- which resulted in the coldest UK winter in 30 years with 7 consecutive days where the temperature did not exceed zero degrees celsius. 

 

Previous winters with La Nina and NAO+ include winters with heavy snowfalls of 1951, 1972, 1976 and 1999, (the year of the Montroc avalanche), and 2000.
