Extreme snow accumulations in European mountains are a result of long-term cold period, which is lasting in Europe since January 2021.
Cold 5-month period from January to May 2021 in Europe /https://mkweather.com/a-big-european-circulation-anomaly-in-2021-totally-oppositely-such-as-in-the-world-and-showing-what-climate-change-should-bring-until-2100// is arriving after long-term and ongoing La nina event /https://mkweather.com/the-next-cold-winter-strong-la-nina-in-winter-2021-2022-forecasted//, series of strong volcanic eruptions VEI4 – VEI5 and minimum activity of solar cycle /https://mkweather.com/solar-cycle-behind-nao-coldwaves-in-europe-and-la-nina-coldwaves-around-the-world-2021//.
During Summer 2021 probably thanks to La nina are waiting us many weather surprises in Europe and around the world, e.g. snowing or frosts should appear again in British Islands (Scotland) or Scandinavia and significant coldwaves with heavy rain or ground frosts in continental Europe.
