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.

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.
