After moving to Chamonix, France in 2015, I immediately realized that snow forecasts were not as easy to come by in the old country as they are currently in the USA. Hard to decipher government sponsored meteorological sources are basically all that’s available for ski bums in Europe.
Started by a three Dutch nationals, the show is now run by Maurice Mommen (*alter ego — Meteo Morris) and Arjen de Graaf. These two weather/powderhounds are putting out some of the most comprehensive snow forecasts for mountain regions (*not countries) across the alps and their patented Powder Alerts are amazingly in-depth. Not to mention, they’re published in English!
Never miss another powder day: wePowder | Powder Alerts
This year, we’ll be working with wePowder to give our audience up-to-date, accurate snow forecasts for Europe. Stay tuned as we patiently await #PA1 for the 2018/2019 ski season.
LET IT SNOW!
After driving thousands of kilometers to and through the Alps over many, many seasons, wePowder was founded in 2008. We have learned to unlock the mysteries of intricate weather patterns, found out about interesting local phenomena and discovered tiny gems that remain hidden to the tourist’s eye.
We decided to share all this knowledge with our dedicated audience and offer them the best possible forecasts. We believe that riding great powder is not a matter of chance, but a matter of choice. You just have to be at the right time in the right place for the best conditions. And in doing this, it doesn’t matter if you’re are riding on one board or two, because the feeling of sliding through powder snow is universal.
