Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 20 November 2014

After recent snow fall across Austria, Thursday 20th November brought lovely sunshine with the occasional light cloudy interval. The overall temperature in each of our featured resorts was sitting just above freezing at mid-mountain level. 

The Stubai Glacier (0/130cm) has alerted its snow sports enthusiasts with a 35cm powder alarm that fell on the 18th November and Thursday brought excellent weather with sunny skies and light clouds. A total of 20 lifts were in operation for the fresh pistes and fresh powder off piste. Overall, it was a great day to be up on the Stubai Glacier.

Obergurgl (16/90cm) recently opened for its full winter season and enjoyed sunny skies on Thursday with a total of 13 lifts turning. Good skiing can be enjoyed on the upper slopes of the Hochgurgl area however there is limited skiing on the lower resort runs.

With the weekend approaching, Austria is expecting lots of sunshine so suntan lotion is a must but do wrap up as it will still have a cold climate.

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
