    Euro Snow Conditions?

    Leaving in a week (2/29) and renting a car in Munich (AWD, snow tires, and chains), driving down to the Dolomites, to Innsbruck, through to Verbier and Courchavel, and then out of Torino.

    Have heard that it's been a relatively low-snow year until recently, or has that changed? That will be good for driving, if not for skiing. All the passes should be open, etc. I once spent 8 hours in a two meter storm driving to Cervinia in what should have been a 3 hour ride, so that is definitely not what I'm looking for again. But a little fresh snow would certainly be welcome!

    I know it's early, but I don't see much of anything snow-wise on the horizon before I get there either. Any current info is appreciated.

    TIA

    Switzerland in general has a good cover above 2000 mt, scarse at 1300mt none lower. So if you stick to Graubünden and Wallis you should have fun and no problems

    Current actual snowline elevation of existing snowpack

    I recall seeing a website link of a Euro map that shows the current actual snowline elevation of existing snowpack. Does anyone happen to have this handy to share?
