Snow overview for Austria
Thursday 17 April 2014

Thursday 17th April was a predominantly sunny day across the open Austrian resorts, bringing a change to the weather. Earlier this week fresh snowfall blessed many Austrian resorts and improving the on and off piste snow cover.

The heaviest snowfall has been reported on the higher ski areas, such as on the Stubai Glacier at Neustift (20/365cm), Obergurgl (35/128cm), Kaprun (120/280cm) and Kuhtai (60/90cm).

The skiing at Zauchensee (55/110cm) was excellent on Thursday with fresh snow across much of the off-piste terrain and piste conditions that were more akin to mid-winter than spring.

Cloudy weather is forecast to return to the Austrian resorts over the weekend and throughout next week. The freezing level is also expected to sit at or above 2,500m which means that many slopes could see rain.

Expensive, but not as bad as you might think.

Zuers is not so expensive during the low season. The difference between low and high is much more here than in Switzerland. Comparing the total cost between Zermatt and Zuers it will be about the same.
The big advantage of Zuers is its ski school. In Zermatt, for serious off piste skiing, you need to organise a guide for appr. 600 franks a day. In Zuers you just go to the ski school and get a guide for the whole week and, with proper snow, don´t see a piste.
