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.

PE Arlberg St Anton
Overall rating: 5 stars

Heartily endorse Caroline's cheery review below. She didn't mention that she is probably 30 years below the PE age, being there with uncle Phil, but still had a great time and certainly led the apres charge!
Even without the greatest off piste snow conditions, we had plenty of very good skiing and excellent instruction, and added to it with the other activities Caroline mentions; curling, our slalom race and daily apres in the underground with its great live music.
St Anton is one of the World's top resorts for its combination of challenging skiing, including generally superb lift served off piste with marked itineraries and steep couloir, probably the best on-slope apres anywhere in the Moosevirt, Krazy Kangaroo or quieter Underground and a delightful car free village centre, Not recommended for beginners and they or mixed ability groups would be better staying in Lech.
