Snow overview for Austria
The Austrian glaciers caught yet more snowfall throughout the week, with all of our featured resorts picking up fresh snow on Thursday 8th October. Between 5 and 10cm fell across a wide area, resulting in fresh and powdery conditions both on and off piste.
Both the Hintertux (50/90cm) and Stubai (40cm) glaciers were open and were reporting around 5cm of fresh snow, giving some excellent turns for those up in the mountains for a pre-season ski. Sadly the Molltal Glacier (60cm) was closed due to the bad weather; it was suffering from stronger winds and heavier snow than our other featured areas.
The changeable theme is set to continue through into the weekend, with further light falls of snow forecast. In the slightly longer term a real cold blast, with freezing levels dipping to around 1500m, is currently predicted from Wednesday onwards – bringing the first real taste of winter for the valleys.
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.
