Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 11 February 2016

There was some excellent skiing on offer across Austria on Thursday 11th February, with the sun shining brightly in the west of the country in particular. Further east some clouds from yesterday’s snowfall were lingering on the peaks, but some decent sunny breaks were seen in places.

Once again the Arlberg region was the place to be, especially as the skies were sunniest here on Thursday. Loads of new snow has been recorded at Lech (150/205cm) and St Anton (95/220cm) where base depths are very impressive. All but one lift was running in the Ski Arlberg region, so not only was the snow quality excellent but the variety on offer was fantastic.

Some great skiing was also to be found slightly further east at Ischgl (30/115cm), Galtur (55/105cm) and Serfaus (20/120cm) although here the avalanche danger hit Level 4 on Thursday – so off piste skiing was not advised herea.

Significant improvement in the piste conditions was also reported in the big linked areas in the east of the Tyrol and across in the Salzburg region. In excess of 10cm of fresh snow has been picked up at the likes of Ellmau (55/65cm) in the Ski Welt, Badgastein (40/120cm) in the Ski Amade region and at Kitzbuhel (56/85cm). The biggest winner however was the SkiCircus that includes the resorts of Saalbach (55/90cm) and Fieberbrunn (60/150cm) where 25cm fell on the upper slopes.

The outlook as we head towards half term is very positive, with fresh snow expected to land at all of our featured resorts in the country. As has been the case for much of the season, the Arlberg is in the firing line for some heavy snow, with around 50cm possible here by Wednesday 17th February. However the heaviest snow looks set for the Otztal Valley at the likes of Obergurgl (30/175cm) and Solden (15/263cm) where in excess of a metre of new snow is forecast.

Niederau and the Ski Jewel area offer more than you imagine
Overall rating: 4 stars

Niederau offers in my opinion more than you would at first sight imagine. Over many years I have been there a number of times and I have always enjoyed it for many different reason. There is a certain very friendly charm about the area that arises due to the local population wanting you to enjoy yourself and come back again. Many visitors are repeaters.

The slopes at Niederau offer a perfect location to really improve your fall line skiing technique without going a long distances or to high altitudes. When you can ski all the runs at Niederau following only the fall line without zig zags, then you can say that you can really ski! The ski school offers good quality enjoyable instruction in English to all levels of skiing ability. A free ski bus from the village takes you in about 13 minutes to Auffach where there is a lot more skiing available and a link over to Alpbach in the next valley eastwards along the Tirol.

The prices are reasonable by skiing comparisons. Generally I can say that you get value for money. I have stayed at the Hotel Austria many times and can recommend it.
