Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 30th of March was a predominately sunny day for our featured Austrian resorts, with light clouds dotting the sky and warm temperatures allowing for soft snow and spring skiing.
With Easter school holidays for British schools around the corner, the next couple of days may be the best time to enjoy the conditions at resorts such as Pitzal (155/201cm) and Solden (20/269cm), where the skiing on the upper slopes remains in good nick for the time of year. Slopes lower down have turned from slush to worn, and for many resorts the runs are little more than patches of snow on an otherwise bare mountain. This is particularly noticeable for the resorts in the Ski Welt (15/30cm), where the snow is being affected badly by the strong spring sun.
Expect Friday 31st to be the last day of high pressure weather, and rain and thunderstorms to then move in for the weekend. Small amounts of snow may fall for higher resorts such as Kauenrtal (268/309cm), but for most resorts be prepared for looks like some fairly miserable weather over Saturday and Sunday.
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!
