Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 29 January 2015

Austria has enjoyed a week full of fresh snowfall with all of our featured resorts reporting powdery conditions and increases in overall base depths. It continued to snow on Thursday 29th January with cold temperatures, just in time for the approaching weekend. 

The Ski Welt region, including Soll (60/80cm), Westendorf (60/80cm), Ellmau (60/80cm), Hopfgarten (60/80cm) and Scheffau (60/80cm), enjoyed fresh snow throughout the week and more snow fell on Thursday with up to 10cm reported in the morning.

The Amade region, including resorts such as Bad Gastein (125/240cm), Bad Hofgastein (25/95cm), Flachau (80/190cm) and Wagrain (50/115cm) have all seen fresh snow this week with up 20cm being reported on Wednesday and it continued to drop on Thursday too. Overall temperatures remain below freezing, keeping the pistes in an excellent state and there is plenty of fresh powder off the piste.

There’s more cloud and snow just around the corner as the weekend approaches. It’s going to be quite a cold one too so wrap up warm and consider taking a low light lens if possible.

Visited: January 2015

Just back from an excellent week here staying at the Edelweiss & Gurgl. Luckily I know the resort well but even though I had pre-registered to ski with the leader, far too many turned up for a manageable group. It seems to be such a popular resort for the British and some members I spoke to were on their 27th consecutive visit! Maybe a leader in Hochgurgl would be worth considering.
