Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 11 February 2016

There was some excellent skiing on offer across Austria on Thursday 11th February, with the sun shining brightly in the west of the country in particular. Further east some clouds from yesterday’s snowfall were lingering on the peaks, but some decent sunny breaks were seen in places.

Once again the Arlberg region was the place to be, especially as the skies were sunniest here on Thursday. Loads of new snow has been recorded at Lech (150/205cm) and St Anton (95/220cm) where base depths are very impressive. All but one lift was running in the Ski Arlberg region, so not only was the snow quality excellent but the variety on offer was fantastic.

Some great skiing was also to be found slightly further east at Ischgl (30/115cm), Galtur (55/105cm) and Serfaus (20/120cm) although here the avalanche danger hit Level 4 on Thursday – so off piste skiing was not advised herea.

Significant improvement in the piste conditions was also reported in the big linked areas in the east of the Tyrol and across in the Salzburg region. In excess of 10cm of fresh snow has been picked up at the likes of Ellmau (55/65cm) in the Ski Welt, Badgastein (40/120cm) in the Ski Amade region and at Kitzbuhel (56/85cm). The biggest winner however was the SkiCircus that includes the resorts of Saalbach (55/90cm) and Fieberbrunn (60/150cm) where 25cm fell on the upper slopes.

The outlook as we head towards half term is very positive, with fresh snow expected to land at all of our featured resorts in the country. As has been the case for much of the season, the Arlberg is in the firing line for some heavy snow, with around 50cm possible here by Wednesday 17th February. However the heaviest snow looks set for the Otztal Valley at the likes of Obergurgl (30/175cm) and Solden (15/263cm) where in excess of a metre of new snow is forecast.

It's never let me down
Overall rating: 5 stars

I'm 62 and have been skiing virtually every year since I was 18 - I wish I could do it all again! I 'discovered" St Anton and its neighbouring resorts of Stuben, Lech, Zurs et al about 20 years ago - and sad to relate have skied there every year since - sometimes twice a year - I have found nowhere in Europe to compare. I and my family never tire of the place - and we have skiied there between mid December and mid April.
It is fair to say that skiing on the main St Anton slopes after lunch is often a nightmare - crowded, mogulled and a bit slushy. The key is generally to get up early and "do" the main St Anton slopes in the early morning (in particular "Happy Valley" which is usually a joy up until 12ish) then get over to Zurs or Rendl or Steuben.
Getting to Zurs is remarkably easy - for a party of 4 or more just grab a taxi in St Anton - don't mess about with buses - my family's happiest days have been spent just skiing Zurs slopes all day long sometimes - but St Anton is still the best base.
I'm not someone who as a whole contributes reviews - but I was prompted to do so because elsewhere I have read a number of negative reviews of skiers who appear not to have strayed away from the main St Anton slopes - and I can readily see how someone who just spends a week or more just skiing the south facing St Anton slopes might be underwhelmed. It is those slightly more distant slopes (still covered by the same ski pass) that leave you (or me and my family at least) always wanting to come back.
