Austria Snow

An absolutely glorious day across Austria on Thursday 19th January. The country basked in sunshine and temperatures were well below freezing, meaning that conditions remained very good indeed. In the Ski Welt (65/75cm), the resorts of Ellmau, Hopfgarten, Scheffau and Soll are all looking impressive. The last snow in the area was on the 16th January, and the off piste is now mostly tracked out. However, 86/91 lifts were spinning on Thursday, and with 275km of groomed terrain on offer, there are plenty of different options available for all abilities. In the Arlberg region, the lower slopes at St Anton (60/150cm) and St Christoph (60/150cm) were packed, whilst the upper slopes surrounding the resorts were in excellent nick. Nearby at Lech (80/120cm) and Zurs (80/120cm) all but two of the lifts were running (85/87) and the skiing across the area is superb. Of all our featured Austrian resorts, only one was struggling somewhat compared to rest. Bad Kleienkirchheim in east Austria (15/20cm) has still got a relatively shallow base depth compared to other resorts, and was also an anomaly in the sense that it was also a partly cloudy day on Thursday too. The sunny skies are set to continue on into the weekend, and current forecast predicts that fine views should prevail well into next week. Temperatures may rise slightly over the weekend, but should still remain cold enough to keep the snow in great condition.
