As the season comes towards its end in Austria, it seems that winter will continue for a little while yet. Fresh snow has been falling across the resorts that remain open, and temperatures have been as low -5C in some places, meaning that conditions up high are excellent for the time of year.
Around the Obergurgl region, which is where the majority of our featured resorts are still operating, there has been around 5cm of new snow for Kaunertal (127/194cm), and 20cm for Obergurgl 25/120cm). Although visibility was limited on Thursday due to the continuing snow and cloud, once the current front moves over skiers are likely to find a nice mixture of packed powder on piste and great areas of untouched snow off to the side.
Elsewhere, Kitzbuhel (0/70cm) in the Skiwelt was still running 4/57 lifts on Thursday, and received 6cm of new snow overnight. However, whilst conditions up high continue to improve, the lower runs to resort remain closed.
Over the remainder of Thursday and into Friday more snow is forecast, and Hintertux (70/235cm) could receive 85cm. The weather is then expected to change on Saturday as a band of high pressure starts to creep in.
