Snow overview for Austria
Monday 20 February 2017

For much of Austria the weather was mainly cloudy on Monday 20th February. There has been a bit of a drop in the temperature since the spring sun of last week, and many resorts have benefited from fresh snow over the weekend, which has contributed to some lovely skiing.

In the Arlberg region the skiing was looking excellent at Lech/Zurs (85/120cm). 20cm of fresh fell on Friday 17th, and there are still some nice areas of off-piste powder to enjoy. Nearby at St Anton/St Christoph (60/155cm) conditions were equally good, and all 23 lifts where spinning across the resorts. Further snow is expected between 1600-2000m for the region this week.

Towards Salzburg, Kaprun (60/130cm) was boasting some lovely looking groomed pistes, whilst in the Ski Welt (60/70cm) a touch of fresh snow refreshed the mountain at Ellmau, Scheffau and Soll.

Current forecasts predict that rain may fall across most resorts on Tuesday 21st, with temperatures expected to sit at around +4C. However, fingers are crossed for higher resorts such as Hintertux (70/180cm) that the precipitation will fall as snow. Wednesday and Thursday are likely to bring a mixture of sun and cloud, with the next period of snow expected on Friday 24th.

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.
