Snow overview for Austria
Monday 30 March 2015

The current weather pattern of snow up high and rain below has altered the piste conditions significantly, with the uppermost slopes in a powdery state and the lower runs being wet and quite heavy.

Naturally, the glacial resorts are having an excellent day with regards to snowfall as all of our featured glacier resorts are reporting heavy snowfall and powdery conditions. Pitztal (226/309cm) has so far reported up to 14cm in the last 24 hours and it looks set to continue throughout the week.

In central Austria, the resort of Kuhtai (90/115cm) enjoyed plenty of fresh snow on Monday 30th March with around 15cm being reported. All 12 lifts were in operation for the new guests that arrived at the weekend, perfect timing and it looks as though it will continue to snow throughout the week.

We have seen our first season closure in Austria; we bid a fond farewell to St Wolfgang who has now closed its gates for the winter ski season.

As mentioned before, the snow is expected to continue to drop over the course of this new week. Our forecasts are indicating lighter snowfall up until Thursday, when it is expected to increase significantly. It should remain quite cold too, so fingers crossed and all boxes are ticked for fresh pistes and pockets of fresh powder.

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.
