Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 18 December 2014

There was an abundance of cloud seen across Austria on Thursday 18th December with some resorts reporting light rainfall lower down and light snowfall at high altitude. The temperature in Austria has risen with some mid-mountain levels being reported at 6C, this has unfortunately hindered some snowmaking for resort runs but pistes remain in a better state higher up.

Despite the poor weather there are still good riding conditions particularly on the higher resorts and glaciers. Solden (0/190cm) has plenty of options at high altitude, although the resort runs are closed there were 24 lifts running in total on Thursday. A recent snowfall of around 5cm on Wednesday has bolstered the high altitude runs and resort teams are reporting good, groomed pistes as a result.

The current warm weather is expected to subside and drop back down to below freezing, and the weekend’s forecast is indicating cloudy skies on Saturday with a good chance of fresh snow to all of our featured resorts. Some resorts are expecting up to 8cm. It could get much warmer at the start of the week but come Christmas time the temperature is looking like dropping back down again.

For Families Who Object to Half Term Skiing
Overall rating: 5 stars

Visited: April 2014

At 2000m Obergurgl is high enough to be reasonably snow sure at the start of the Easter school holidays. It can get slushy near the resort but the higher slopes are usually OK, if at times a little icy first thing.

It is a traditional, charming, working Austrian village (moos and baas heard emerging from sundry barns etc). Situated at the end of the valley it is relatively car free and quiet: a great place for beginners and families. We found lift queues are rare, except at ski school launching time. Whilst there is excellent off piste and ski mountaineering there are limited numbers of black runs but a wide range of enjoyable blues and reds suitable for beginners and intermediates of all levels.

The lift system is well connected between the 3 main ski areas.allowing for variety in a days skiing. For the adventurous the glacier at Solden is a bus journey back down the valley.

3 generations of our family have learned to ski at Obergurgl and the ski school is always helpful and its classes, of modest size, often taken by native English instructors (especially for children). Where the instructor is not British they speak English spoken well.d, excellent
