PowderAlert 6 2022/23 | Strangely peculiar Piedmont

Powder with the Mon Cherie cherry!

by Lars Oelmann 02/26/2023
The situation is bleak. The oracle has currently underestimated the volumes in the foothills of the Alps, because it would actually have been enough to sound the alarm this weekend in the foothills of the Alps (5km in, but not in the Alps), but we don't want to miss the next alarm. However, it is far, far away from where the Mon Cherie cherry is grown. And only there.

Alert period and areas

The alert lasts until Wednesday and extends from the Turin Alps to the Italian Maritime Alps. The core is a tiny little corner around Cuneo that will benefit from northeastern accumulations in the southern Alps.


Barely. Will be powder. But not going over to France either.

Snow line

Snow up to Cuneo at 500m. Together with the wind, that means POW POW!

The amounts

In the Mon Cherie corner, 30-50cm of snow will fall at the edge and 70-90cm in the core. Some models even get up to 120cm locally. However, this is really critical in such rather tricky locations with a very small accumulation angle. Perhaps the models are underestimating it, as is currently the case in the foothills of the Alps.

Where should I go?

I would stay in the core for now, or at home in the foothills of the Alps. However, you could actually explore the south, because they had more of a base there than our one in the northern Alps.

From Wednesday onwards, it could tear open. Before then, you should head for the trees.

Medium term

Dry everywhere. Whether anything will happen with the SSW after next weekend is still questionable. The main runs of the models are rather meagre.

Powder to the people!

Your oracle, who is still alive but has inwardly finished with 22/23. Please, Ullr, give us the Miracle March!

Snowy summit tip game

The snowy summit tip game will take place at the "Limone Pancani (1875m)" station from 26.2. to 1.3. 14:00: Post your tip in the forum by Monday, 27.2. at 22:00 -> competitions !
