Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 26 March 2015

The mild temperatures have unfortunately brought rain to lower regions and resort runs, which has started to affect the snow conditions. Despite the rain, there have been traces of fresh snow at higher altitudes, which has freshened up the pistes a little.

The glacial resorts have seen light snowfall of varying amounts. Kaunertal (233/335cm) probably received the most snow with approximately 10cm being reported. The skiing conditions were very good but the weather was more on the negative side as the clouds were thick and visibility was quite poor. As a result of the weather conditions, some lifts were closed so 12 of the 16 were in operation.

The warm climate and rain has reduced some skiing capabilities in some resorts, St Wolfgang (0/37cm) being one of them. You can still enjoy good skiing here if you stick to groomed pistes but anywhere off the piste will be patchy or grassland by now.

The widespread cloud is forecast to stay around for another day but it should brighten up on Saturday, which should bring spring time skiing conditions too. Heavier snow and sadly rain lower down is currently forecast for Sunday and into next week.

Gargellen review
Valerie Coombs

Gargellen is a wonderful resort. I speak as a beginner married to a skier of 20 years experience. I started last year at 60 my husband is 70 this year and it provides us with everything we could want. There is an excellent ski school that caters for both of us - he being taken off piste and challenged constantly and me being taught by some wonderful instructors instilling knowledge and confidence.


It is not a large village, we stayed at the Bradabella Hotel which is warm, welcoming and offers first class service. If learning to ski later in life, I would recommend this resort to anyone, and apparently the off piste is extensive despite it being a compact resort. Maybe one day I will be able to comment on this through personal experience!
