Stubai Glacier
The snowy end to April in the Alps shows no sign of abating with a number of resorts posting up to a metre of snowfall in the last three days.

The latest big falls come after Gstaad's Glacier 3000 ski areas reported a 1.5m (five foot) accumulation in a similar period last week.

At the start of this week it's Austria's Stubai Glacier (pictured top earlier this week) in Tirol region, which has had over a metre of snowfall and is now posting Europe's deepest snow up high at 5.65 metres (nearly 19 feet), one of the deepest snowpacks reported all season. It's staying open to late May.

Switzerland's Engelberg, also open into May, is the latest to report nearly a metre (97cm) of snowfall in 72 hours and reports its snow 4 metres deep on the glacier.

Around 30 ski regions remain open in the Alps for the final week of April with around half of them planning to stay open into May.
