Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 04 February 2016

Snow was falling across much of Austria on Thursday 4th February, with improving conditions across the majority of our featured resorts. With the freezing level sitting at around 800m, snow was falling all the way down to village level in most regions.

The biggest gains look to be made in the west of the country, particularly resorts located in the Arlberg region. Lech (115/130cm) and Zurs (115/130cm) saw around 30cm of snow on the ground on Thursday morning, with more set to fall throughout the day. This should ensure that there are plenty of fresh turns to be had both on and off the piste.

The glacier resorts of Stubai (30/160cm) and Pitztal (141/201cm) saw some good snowfall, with around 15cm of fresh snow falling on the upper mountain overnight. As a result there is some excellent skiing to be had in both resorts currently.

Elsewhere, overnight totals of around 10cm were present in the majority of resorts, with more expected throughout the course of the day. As a result, base depths have seen improvements across both the upper and lower mountain. Lift operations on the upper mountains have been affected as a result of the poor visibility and avalanche risk.

The snow will continue to fall throughout the rest of Thursday and into much of Friday morning. The sun will make an appearance on Friday afternoon and continue over much of the weekend. Clouds will begin to roll in once more from Sunday morning, with snow expected to fall on the upper mountain during the afternoon. Temperatures will remain around freezing for the duration.

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!
