A women’s World Cup downhill skiing race was cancelled Sunday for the second straight day due to heavy snowfall in the French Alps.
The overnight forecast for Val d’Isere (a French ski resort located near the Italian border) initially called for approximately 10-15 cm (4-6 inches) through Friday night, with clearer skies developing into Saturday morning. However, after the initial predicted snowstorm passed, an additional 20 cm (7.9 inches) of powder fell, burying the slopes into Saturday afternoon.
FIS Alpine wrote on Twitter there was “nothing we could do against the weather”:
The women’s downhill race was originally scheduled for Saturday, but the heavy snow forced organizers to switch the program to Sunday. Then, despite the best efforts of clearing crews, the slopes couldn’t be readied in time thanks to the additional snowfall, and all remaining events were cancelled.
Furthermore, a whopping 40-60cm (16-24 inches) of snow settled through Sunday, according to france24.com, leading many to call this “the most impressive start to the winter season in recent years”.
The lower-latitudes are refreezing, glaciers are re-advancing, all in line with historically low solar activity.
Don’t fall for NOAA’s/the BOM’s politicized, warm-mongering, UHI-ignoring temperature datasets — our future is one of cold, crop loss & struggle.
