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.

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.
