anybody's guess. It will snow this weekend we were told. It is really so unpredictable.

Most probable months are February or March (depending on when Fasnacht ist, gal Mätzli? ;-))

but as i said we wait (stocking up on Tea, Glühwein and fondue) for snow this weekend.

Tak

During the last few years we had more or less no snow in January or Ferbuary. Climate has changed. It is too warm. Interesting enough that we had now twice heavy snowfalls in the beginning of March.

When I was I boy, 40 years ago, we had sleighs and snowmen a.s.o. This is all gone.

Nevertheless: Long term predictions by nature foretellers, who study the behaving of ants, the needles of pine trees and the hair of roebucks, indicate, that this winter should be a real one!
