Snow overview for Austria
Monday 30 March 2015

The current weather pattern of snow up high and rain below has altered the piste conditions significantly, with the uppermost slopes in a powdery state and the lower runs being wet and quite heavy.

Naturally, the glacial resorts are having an excellent day with regards to snowfall as all of our featured glacier resorts are reporting heavy snowfall and powdery conditions. Pitztal (226/309cm) has so far reported up to 14cm in the last 24 hours and it looks set to continue throughout the week.

In central Austria, the resort of Kuhtai (90/115cm) enjoyed plenty of fresh snow on Monday 30th March with around 15cm being reported. All 12 lifts were in operation for the new guests that arrived at the weekend, perfect timing and it looks as though it will continue to snow throughout the week.

We have seen our first season closure in Austria; we bid a fond farewell to St Wolfgang who has now closed its gates for the winter ski season.

As mentioned before, the snow is expected to continue to drop over the course of this new week. Our forecasts are indicating lighter snowfall up until Thursday, when it is expected to increase significantly. It should remain quite cold too, so fingers crossed and all boxes are ticked for fresh pistes and pockets of fresh powder.

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.
