Snow overview for Austria
As the winter season nears its end, only 10/56 of our featured Austrian resorts were open for skiing on Monday 24th April.
The open resorts are mainly centred on the Obergurgl region, where good skiing is available at the likes of Pitzal (146/193cm) and Kaunertal (127/194cm). Whilst at Zillertal, conditions also remain good up on the glacier at Hintertux (70/235cm), where they will shortly transition into their summer ski season on the 1st July.
The weather for the coming week is a mixture of rain, and snow at higher altitudes. But with many resorts now finished for the season, it seems like there will be limited lift access to any powder.
We had the week of 8th – 15th February in Warth, organised by Snow-Wise who provided an excellent service. We stayed in the Lechtalerhof which was very comfortable and very friendly. Good food, including afternoon tea and tab-nabs. The wellness area is excellent; other hotels might have bigger pools but the different saunas, infrared cabin, ice-cold showers were first class.
Flying Aberdeen/Frankfurt/Friedrichshafen on Lufthansa was much preferable to other airlines and airports. Transfers from and to Friedrichshafen were about 90 minutes.
Ski hire is next door to the Lechtalerhof. We ended up with skis and boots which were perfect for us. And we got a mid-hire tune-up due to the icy patches on some runs.
In our opinion, Warth is geared towards off-piste and just-off-piste skiers with acres and acres of safe bowls which don’t stray far from the pistes. You can take a guide and go much, much further. But if you want corduroy for cruising then, in our experience, Warth is not the place to go. We didn’t see any ski-patrols and one day, in zero visibility, I smashed into an unmarked large boulder or mound of stones in the middle of a blue run (w19) and ended up ten yards down the slope on my back, uninjured if not very happy. On other occasions when the visibility had gone the runs down to Steffisalp narrowed into bumpy, humpy and busy tracks. Piste numbering is unimpressive. Blacks are mostly short. Mountain restaurants are good, especially the Hochalp and the Berg Hotel Koerbersee. Pistes looked busy but there were no queues.
There is a new gondola linking Lech and Warth but be careful that you don’t get stranded. The gondola, and the higher lifts in Warth, were closed all day one day, and closed at around 2pm another day.
To sum up; Warth offers a lot of off- and just-off-piste skiing in soft powder but it doesn’t cater for cruising on corduroy. The Lechtalerhof is excellent; Snow-Wise do a good job; flying via Frankfurt and Freidrichshafen is a pleasure.
