Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 26 March 2015

The mild temperatures have unfortunately brought rain to lower regions and resort runs, which has started to affect the snow conditions. Despite the rain, there have been traces of fresh snow at higher altitudes, which has freshened up the pistes a little.

The glacial resorts have seen light snowfall of varying amounts. Kaunertal (233/335cm) probably received the most snow with approximately 10cm being reported. The skiing conditions were very good but the weather was more on the negative side as the clouds were thick and visibility was quite poor. As a result of the weather conditions, some lifts were closed so 12 of the 16 were in operation.

The warm climate and rain has reduced some skiing capabilities in some resorts, St Wolfgang (0/37cm) being one of them. You can still enjoy good skiing here if you stick to groomed pistes but anywhere off the piste will be patchy or grassland by now.

The widespread cloud is forecast to stay around for another day but it should brighten up on Saturday, which should bring spring time skiing conditions too. Heavier snow and sadly rain lower down is currently forecast for Sunday and into next week.

I have to revise what I wrote about the ski school in Zuers.
They have a problem: about 40 instructors have left and do private instruction only. This means the school does not offer the same exact level for everybody, as they used to.
I was still having a good week off piste every day, but I had to work for it, with some marathon runners. ( I don´t. run marathon.) The next level down would have been mostly on piste.
We have to see what happens next year.
