Ellmau Resort Info

The Ski Welt area is one of the largest in Austria, with a total of 250km of pistes. However, its component parts make the territory rather similar, as it's basically made up of a number of smaller, lift- or bus-linked resorts. Ellmau (55km of runs) is probably the quietest of the resorts, with skiing that largely caters to the beginner and family market. There are great nursery slopes and a good ski school, although classes can be big. There is also reasonable cruising for intermediates of medium ability. Boarders will also find the Ski Welt a good place to learn, but there is only one park and half-pipe in the area (at Soll). 'Langlaufers' are well provided for. Unfortunately, Ellmau and its neighbours suffer from a poor snow record. They have tried to bolster natural snow with new snowmaking facilities, but it still remains a problem and queues often ensue.

Ellmau village itself is traditional, quiet and full of ambience. For nightlife, it's probably best to go to Soll. There aren't that many activities for non-skiers, either. Accommodation is mostly hotel-based and buses are needed to get to the lifts. Eateries on the mountain are surprisingly good, while village grub is found in the hotels, which serve mostly traditional Austrian fare. Overall, Ellmau is a quiet alternative to Soll, best for new skiers and boarders and those looking for a fairly traditional ski experience.

Snow Overview - Austria  (snow news updated 04-Dec-2017)

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.

European Weather Outlook

Across the central European Alps, snow and cold temperatures are forecast to stick around until Saturday. Accumulations of snow on the upper slopes could be huge for the time of year, with some Swiss resorts predicting around 80cm over the course of today and Friday. By the weekend the snow is predicted to subside in many regions and a mixture of sun and cloud is expected for much of Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland. In the Pyrenees, Saturday should be the pick of the day for any skiing in Andorra. Our featured resorts are now closed for the season, but for anyone strapping on their skins, you can expect a mixture of sun and cloud, with temperatures around +3C In Germany, 44cm of fresh snow is being forecast for Garmisch (0/380cm), who will be in disbelief at the moment for all the snow they have received of late. Further north you can expect temperatures of around -3C and snow showers in Norway, which are set to continue right through to Sunday for resorts such Trysil. Across the border in Sweden, the weather should be fairly similar, but any snow that does fall is likely to be light and bring only 1-2cm. Despite some recent biting temperatures and cold winds in the UK, any snow that does fall on the Scottish mountains is most likely to be on Thursday. Thereafter, rain could destroy any hopes of some late season turns.
