If most of the facilities will open between the second half of November and early December, in some regions of Italy in a few days it will be possible to put the skis at the foot

The Stelvio Pass, in Lombardy, thanks to over 20 kilometers of all difficulty, for a total difference of over 700 meters, is one of the most important summer skiing and snowboard centers. Although the heat of summer has created some problems, forcing them to close ski lifts and ski slopes, enthusiasts will be able to enjoy over 20 kilometers of slopes until November 5th with a late-torch torch scheduled for Saturday 4th.

In South Tyrol, the slopes of the Val Senales glacier are already open: skiers have a 3,212-meter Grawand chairlift. “Hope is to be able to open all the systems within two weeks, allowing time,” explains the local operators. Solda has been on the road since October 21, due to the high slopes of up to 3250 meters.

Prices
It is still “early to give a complete picture of any price increases on plant prices” but, as explained by AdnKronos Valeria Ghezzi, president of the Anef (National Association of Operators), “where we should be talking about 2% at most. And I think even from a receptive point of view there will be no significant increases. ” “Investment in the industry amounts to 70 billion – says the Ghezzi – now snow is always guaranteed, also because the trend is that of a mountain to live all year round: even when it is natural you work because it enhances comfort of those who wander. ” “In any case, hope is that this year will be a ‘white Christmas’ – he concludes – not so much because we fear that the sector is affected, but above all, what are the Christmas holidays from the point of view of the collective imagination.”

It falls on the first autumn snow on the northern coast of Alaska, the city of Barrow is tinged with white

First snow of the season on the northern coast of Alaska in the next few days the snow whiten even the north of Eastern Siberia
Despite the many difficulties the cold, gradually, begin to appear along the Arctic coasts of North America. In recent days, the first major wave of autumn chill has affected the northern coast of Alaska and the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, where the influx of very cold air from the Arctic cap, has plunged the thermometer below the threshold of + 0 ° C. Even at some stations the Canadian Arctic Archipelago were recorded the first minimum below -9 ° C -10 ° C. The arrival of the first cold Arctic was accompanied by the arrival of the first snows fall on the northern coast of Alaska, overlooking the Sea of ​​Beaufort, now completely free of ice.

The first snow of the season has whitened the city of Barrow, last Tuesday, September 8, 2015, leaving the ground a small deposit of just 1.2 cm. The snow is falling at times mixed with rain, because of the positive temperature, but also of sustained winds from E-NE and NE who these days have swept the largest city in northern Alaska, with gusts that reached their peak 60 km / h. But these days far more abundant snowfalls have cloaked in white most of the northern coast of Alaska, leaving the first accumulations also on the northern plain, at the foot of the imposing mountains of the Brooks Range, which also impose a great “sto” to damp and cold northerly currents coming from the cold Beaufort Sea, which in this period and for much of the ice-free. The first snow showers have filed the first snow accumulations further south, the central mountains, which during the long summer were completely bare, from the high altitude.

In the areas affected by the recent snow in the coming days it will also determine the effect “Albedo” significant that will help to lower temperatures, favoring the advent of the first true frost also on the ground, especially on the inner areas. The cold wave that hit about Alaska Northern was caused by the passage of a deep depression extratropical, headed by the polar vortex, full of cold air to all units, that the Beaufort Sea has shifted to the Canadian Arctic Archipelago . This extratropical cyclone, a cold heart, filled with very cold air to all units of the troposphere, appeared along its southern edge and western intense “pressure gradient horizontal” which facilitated the activation of strong stormy winds, first from North and N-NE subsequently rotated from NE and E-NE, that the Beaufort Sea have rapidly propagated to the northern coast of Alaska. The strong winds from O-NO and NO, which blew with gusts to over the 70 km / h in the post-frontal, channeled a portion of the block of very cold air, of Arctic origin (cold air and heavily produced over the Hood ), present in the Beaufort Sea, north to Alaska and the western Canadian Arctic Archipelago, where temperatures have plummeted under the wall of the “freezing” at sea level, allowing the arrival of the first snowfalls of up to shares flat.
With the gradual shift of deep depression Arctic to the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, the storms from NE and E-NE have spread to the rest of the northern coast, from the Bay of Mackenzie, across the Canadian border. In the coming days the first snowfall of the season, on a straight flat, will continue to affect the northern coasts of Alaska and even the territories of north-eastern Siberia, especially the coasts bordering the East Siberian Seas. Everything about the isolation of a deep cyclonic circulation, cold in character, headed by the “Siberian lobe”, that the coast of Siberia, Central and Eastern Europe will move in the direction of the central sector of the Arctic Ocean, as a result of the action of ” forcing “a promontory anticyclonic dynamically expanding on southern Siberia, deepened further.

This deep depression Arctic will be fed, along its western edge, from air masses rather cold aspirated directly from the Arctic Ocean. The low pressure area, while moving towards the Arctic Ocean, will push to the plateau of Eastern Siberia very cold air will invade the northern area of ​​eastern Siberia, leading to a sharp cooling and also facilitating the floodgates of the first snowfall weak and moderate intensity. By next weekend the extent of snow cover over Eurasia should begin to grow, embracing part of Eastern Siberia and the coasts of Central Siberia, where temperatures are falling at the turn of + 0 ° C at sea level. For many of these areas it will be the first snow fall, after the latest snowfall last spring. Soils snow will cause a massive cooling of the air layer present in the lower layers.

Alpine skiing: The blue team work between glaciers and South America

The preparation of the national alpine skiing to winter is living its crucial phase: between August and September, in fact, almost all the teams – and Italy is no exception – fly to South America or Oceania using the austral winter and therefore the ski resorts of the two continents to return to sample the snow.

There is no lack sessions on shrinking glaciers, this year put to a severe test by the violent heat of July and August which kept Freezing often above the 4500 meters: in any case, the Italian team is continuing its work which, judging by the statements of the technical, it appears very satisfactory. As reported Raceskimagazine, in fact, the new head of the technical disciplines female Gianluca Rulfi says he is “pleased for the athletic level of girls, particularly those more experienced,” noting as missing “or motivations, or the potential to do very well.” Statements in line with those made by Max Carca, responsible for the men’s team, the site Fisi, we have taken up in this article.

Specifically, the group of male giant has just returned from Argentina, while slalom Stephen Gross, Giuliano Razzoli and Patrick Thaler are working in Saas Fee: Roberto Nani has instead done preparation tailored to New Zealand, taking part also to four slalom special Australian New Zealand Cup with a third place in Perisher best result. The choice of Livigno to compete despite the fever that has gripped for several days is due to the need to lower the score FIS for starting numbers among the best rapid gates and not only among the wide doors of the giant. The men’s team speed instead to work in La Parva, Chile, after a first internship in Valle Nevado.

As for the girls, a large group of gigantiste, supergigantiste and discesiste started two days ago at a time of Ushuaia, the great location and the End of the World: here, under the orders of Alberto Ghezze and Gianluca Rulfi, will host a stage of three weeks is expected to culminate with the dispute, for some athletes, the finals of the South American Cup. The slalomiste Chiara Costazza, Irene Curtoni, Nicole Agnelli, Federica Sosio and Manuela Moelgg are instead practicing at the Stelvio Pass with technical Angelo Weiss and Luke Liore.

The World Cup will start as usual between 24 and 25 October in Soelden, where these days came the first snow of the season.

Exhibitions, Pinturicchio in Cortina

 

Initially it was thought that was a myth, impossible that a work so scandalous might have been made. But then, 500 years later, “The Baby Jesus of the Hands” Pinturicchio appeared out of nowhere and, thanks to the efforts of the Foundation William Jordan, he returned to be talked about. Having wooed the most important museums in the world such as the Guggenheim in New York and the Musée Maillol in Paris, it will again be accessible to the Italian public during the exhibition to be held from December 1 to January 31, 2016 at the Museum of Art Mario Rimoldi modern Cortina d’Ampezzo.

The woman’s face would be shown actually to Giulia Farnese, mistress and mother of a child attributed to the Pope.
