Snow overview for Austria
Monday 22 May 2017

A mixture of sun, cloud dominated the weather for our Austrian resorts on Monday 22nd May. Since our last report, Stubai (220cm) has been the only resort to receive fresh snow, where around 8cm fell on 20th May.

Temperatures are warm, but not overly so, meaning that pistes are starting firm in the morning, and then softening into spring snow as the day go on. The highest recorded temperature of our featured resorts was at Dachstein Glacier (0/380cm), where the forecasts were suggesting around +9C at mid-mountain level.

Hintertux (280cm), in the Zillertal region had 13/20 lifts running, meaning that plenty of options were available up high. In Particular, the cruisy blue runs leading off Gr. Kaserer were looking in great shape for some fast carving turns.

Expect changeable weather for most of the week to come, with plenty of cloud in the forecast. The weekend is predicted to be more pleasant, and may well bring a return to sunny skies.

Visited: December 2014

No where else locally was opened so ventured here.

Not a huge amount of runs but perfect to get your ski legs going with some nice short blues and a couple of long reds.

Cool snow park for the real pro's

Amazing scenery and if brave enough try the overhang
