Snow overview for Austria
Monday 08 February 2016

The weather was variable across much of Austria on Monday 8th February, with a mixture of rain, snow and sunshine affecting many resorts.  Many regions have seen a light dusting of fresh snow over the course of the weekend, with around 5-10cm to be found across the majority of our featured resorts.

Good skiing is currently available across many resorts in the Arlberg region. Lech (130/175cm) and Zurs (130/175cm) have seen further improvements after 10cm of fresh snow fell during the early hours of Monday morning. Building upon the good snowfall of the previous week, this should ensure that fresh turns can be found both on and off the piste.

In the east, good conditions still prevail due to the good snowfall of the previous week. A light dusting of snow across resorts in the Ski Amade region has ensured that pistes remain in good condition, with pockets of fresh powder to be found on the upper mountain.

The unsettled weather of Monday looks likely to be the theme for the rest of the week, with a mixture of sun, cloud and snow affecting almost all of our featured resorts over the coming days. Resorts in the Arlberg regions will see the heaviest of the impending snowfall, with upwards of 50cm likely to fall before the weekend.  Elsewhere, we can expect to see more moderate totals of around 15-20cm of fresh snowfall, with the heaviest of the snow likely to fall throughout Wednesday. Temperatures will fall dramatically over the coming days, with lows of around -10C currently being reported for the middle of the week.

A decent amount of snow early to mid January meant we had very good skiing conditions. We also has a sunny week with little cloud ( no flat light ) and little wind.
We've been to Obergurgl for the past 5 consecutive years and I've always felt that all the piste could be better ' bashed '. This is particularly important for beginners who only have one very lumpy blue back down to the village from the top of the Festkogl lift.
A new gondola and cafe and motor bike museum has been built in Hochgurgl and this is a vast improvement.
There are still not many queues and this is mainly a resort for the 'more mature' although there were more boarders and fast skiiers this year, the latter encouraged by apps ( including the Crystal one ) which measured speed etc.
