Snow overview for Austria
Monday 02 March 2015

We are approaching spring time in the Alps and mild temperatures are starting to be seen, which is making the lower slopes a little heavy. The mild conditions have also brought light rainfall at lower altitudes but light snowfall is being reported higher up.

Despite the rain fall, some of our featured resorts weren’t really affected too much by the mild climate. On Monday 2nd March Solden (5/320cm) reported powdery conditions and plenty of fresh snowfall, with up to 15cm landing on the ski area. So the pistes have been refreshed and the off piste areas have plenty of pockets of fresh powder. The slopes are heavier when you head towards the resort but the majority for the ski area is still in a very good state. The lift network was affected on Monday due to high winds, with 13 lifts closed leaving a total of 20 lifts in operation.

Over the next few days we can expect similar conditions which should provide plenty of fresh snow for the new week, especially as temperatures drop during the week.

An excellent Austrian Resort you should visit
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: January 2015

This is typical Austrian resort with a good lift system and plenty of variety of runs for all standards, It is higher than some and with good snow making, the pistes are well covered and well groomed. We were unlucky to have some strong winds and also some days with very poor visibility. It was worth the extra to have a good day in Solden. We were lucky to be rather late on the glaciers as the crowds had mostly gone early.
The resort is certainly popular with the club. A good number of members skied with the Leader, there was a Peak Experience Holiday with two leaders, and I enjoyed skiing with Alastair Ross who proved to be a very competent, relaxed and caring Leader.
