Snow overview for Austria
Monday 20 February 2017

For much of Austria the weather was mainly cloudy on Monday 20th February. There has been a bit of a drop in the temperature since the spring sun of last week, and many resorts have benefited from fresh snow over the weekend, which has contributed to some lovely skiing.

In the Arlberg region the skiing was looking excellent at Lech/Zurs (85/120cm). 20cm of fresh fell on Friday 17th, and there are still some nice areas of off-piste powder to enjoy. Nearby at St Anton/St Christoph (60/155cm) conditions were equally good, and all 23 lifts where spinning across the resorts. Further snow is expected between 1600-2000m for the region this week.

Towards Salzburg, Kaprun (60/130cm) was boasting some lovely looking groomed pistes, whilst in the Ski Welt (60/70cm) a touch of fresh snow refreshed the mountain at Ellmau, Scheffau and Soll.

Current forecasts predict that rain may fall across most resorts on Tuesday 21st, with temperatures expected to sit at around +4C. However, fingers are crossed for higher resorts such as Hintertux (70/180cm) that the precipitation will fall as snow. Wednesday and Thursday are likely to bring a mixture of sun and cloud, with the next period of snow expected on Friday 24th.

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.
