Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 21 May 2015

At the start of the week it was quite sunny across Austria but the clouds began to thicken, which eventually brought fresh snow on Wednesday 20th May to all of our featured resorts. Furthermore it continued to snow right into Thursday 21st May. All of our featured resorts received at least 10cm of fresh snow, providing fresh pistes and powder pockets off the piste. The Molltal Glacier still remains closed on a temporary basis but we will keep you updated with its progress.

The pick of the bunch has to the Stubai Glacier (260cm) as it reported a powder alarm, which indicated up to 45cm of fresh snow had landed, and it continued to fall right through Thursday. As expected, the majority of the lifts were closed due to heavy snowfall but 10 of the 26 were in operation. The new snow has provided plenty of powder both on and off the piste, so when bashed, the slopes will be in a fantastic state and there will also be fresh tracks waiting just off the slopes.

The current spell of cloudy weather is expected to remain over the weekend, which could bring more snow but the temperature is forecast to increase slightly so it may turn to rain lower down but lighter snow fall may still be present at higher altitude.

Peaceful way to ski Ischgl
Overall rating: 4 stars

Visited: February 2015

I wanted to make use of the excellent mountain installation at Ischgl, without joining the high octane partying.
Imfound a lovely B&B near the ski bus stop and the village centre. 20 mins to lifts in Ischgl, 5 mins to Galtur's own slopes.

Galtur is lovely: small, quiet, friendly and cheap. Its home slopes are not extensive but provide a great day out and would be perfect for children and beginners.

There are bars in Galtur, but really you go there to be peaceful. You want to party? Stay in Ischgl.
The skiing at Ischgl is superb; other areas should invest so well.
