Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 20 November 2014

After recent snow fall across Austria, Thursday 20th November brought lovely sunshine with the occasional light cloudy interval. The overall temperature in each of our featured resorts was sitting just above freezing at mid-mountain level. 

The Stubai Glacier (0/130cm) has alerted its snow sports enthusiasts with a 35cm powder alarm that fell on the 18th November and Thursday brought excellent weather with sunny skies and light clouds. A total of 20 lifts were in operation for the fresh pistes and fresh powder off piste. Overall, it was a great day to be up on the Stubai Glacier.

Obergurgl (16/90cm) recently opened for its full winter season and enjoyed sunny skies on Thursday with a total of 13 lifts turning. Good skiing can be enjoyed on the upper slopes of the Hochgurgl area however there is limited skiing on the lower resort runs.

With the weekend approaching, Austria is expecting lots of sunshine so suntan lotion is a must but do wrap up as it will still have a cold climate.

Great area for families
Overall rating: 4 stars

Having spent a day here last year with a friend, I was keen to come back with the family as it seemed to cater well for families. I was not disappointed.

The Galtur ski school (I think there is only one) was fantastic. They were extremely helpful, spoke perfectly acceptable English, and were brilliant with the children (ours were 9 & 12 at the time). We were all in ski school, and we all progressed well. We only did 2 x hours per day, though you can do 4, with a 2 hour break for lunch which seemed a bit long for us.

Be advised that if you are staying in Galtur (which you almost certainly will be) the ski area is a 3 minute bus ride away up the valley. With a family, particularly a young one, this can be quite stressful, carrying skis, poles etc. Our top tip is to book yourself a locker, which is directly beneath the ski school office, right on the nursery slopes. It was about 22 Euros for 3 nights (as we did not discover this straight away) - you get a discount if you are in ski school. The locker room is state-of -the-art. Heated and very comfortable, you gain access to both the locker area and your locker via your lift pass, which is programmed once you have booked it. Brilliant. You can then just jump on the bus with the children without struggling with all the gear.

The ski buses are pretty constant, though the service does tail off a little during the middle of the day when the demand is lower.

We stayed in the Buntali Hotel which was excellent - see my review on trip advisor.

The area is pretty small, compared to it's noisy neighbour, Ischgl, but they manage to pack a lot into it. One of the big benefits is the gondola, which gos from the top of the nursery slopes, to the top of the main (and only) blue run which brings you back to where you started. This is great for nervous beginners ,and small children, who may not have yet mastered the chair lifts.

Most of all, this area never seems to get crowded. It's a little gem!
