Big accumulations of snow are building in the Alps this weekend, with Austrian glaciers appearing to get the largest totals so far.
A brutal cold front swept across central Europe on Sunday, bringing with it large dumpings of the white stuff.
Official forecasts called for 35cm to fall by Monday at Hintertux, Austria, but 30cm had already been recorded by Sunday morning — with at least a further 12 hours of snow expected.
