Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 23 March 2017

Thursday 23rd March saw spring weather continue to deteriorate skiing conditions across our featured Austrian resorts. Over the course of the week there has been fresh snow at times, particularly for resorts such as Galtur (35/130cm) and Ischgl (0/110cm), where around 5cm was accumulated on the upper slopes on 22nd March.

However, what we are mainly starting to notice is a sharp decrease in base depths, and patches of dirt that are beginning to appear on the lower slopes. In east Austria, Bad Kleinkircheim (15/30cm) is a prime example of this, where the snow has melted considerably, and the number of slopes is starting to drop as a result.

The best skiing in Austria at present can be found up high at the likes of Pitzal (171/215cm) or Obergurl (24/126cm), where unlike much of the country, the temperature remained cold at around -1C or -2C.
Weather wise, over the coming weekend we can expect a considerable amount of clouds across the country, with snow being likely for many resorts. For the biggest accumulations look to the Arlberg region, where around 14cm is predicted for Lech/Zurs (80/165cm) on Sunday 26th March.
