Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 26 February 2015

It’s a great week to be in Austria as fresh snow fell in all of our featured resorts in the past 48 hours. All resorts are either reporting powdery or fresh conditions but rest assured, there are fresh pistes and pockets of fresh powder on offer.

By far the most recorded snow came around the Salzberg region with Kaprun (100/310cm) and Zell am See (15/123cm) reporting excellent conditions, particularly at the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier where around 40cm was reported to have settled. This has brought fresh powder off the track and fresh pistes, which have been packed down and groomed to perfection.  Zell am See and Kaprun had all of their lifts turning, with a total of 47 to get you around the mountains.

We’re expecting more clouds to form this weekend which could bring fresh snow to many parts of Austria. It has been quite changeable recently so do keep an eye on local forecasts but most of all get out there and enjoy the excellent conditions.

Ski school

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.
