Resort leaders snow report

Skiing Today

After a warm up run down from the Festkogl Alm restaurant, we headed over to Hochgurgl on the Top Express. We enjoyed the winding run down to the Hochgurglbahn mid-station to avoid the lift queues, and then skied down to the Crosspoint restaurant and explored the area off the top of the gondola. There were some good snow conditions to enjoy at slightly lower altitudes too, and then we headed straight up to the Top Mountain Star restaurant for a hot chocolate and coffee stop and excellent views across to the Dolomites. We negotiated the tricky runs off the top before skiing down to the Top Express and returning to Obergurgl, where we looked forward to the skidoo ride over to the Schonwieshutte restaurant from the top of the Schermerbahn, to take our lunch break. We enjoyed the ride down which was the fun run of the day and spent a lazy lunch on the terrace before going our separate ways at the bottom of the Hohe Mut Alm at the end of a great week.

Weather Summary

It was a typical spring day, with warm sunshine all day. A great day for spring skiing with excellent visibility.

Snow overview for Austria

02 July 2017
Fresh snowfall was reported at the end of June and on Monday 3rd July at Kaprun (60cm). On Monday it there were two runs available but visibility was reduced due to the cloudy, and snowy, weather. The snow was better higher up while down at the Alpincenter it was a little wet. Pitztal (10cm) is now open for their summer skiing season. They may only be reporting a base depth of 10cm but this is not a fair reflection of the snow conditions at the moment. Fresh snowfall on Monday meant the skiing was soft, forgiving and rather great for July. The unseasonable weather significantly reduced the visibility though. It was also possible to ski at Hintertux (195cm) on Monday and again the weather was cloudy with poor visibility. Despite this the resort still had 20km of prepared slopes available. Molltal (240cm) also reported new snow on Monday but the inclement weather meant the resort was closed for skiing for the day.
