Austrian twin beds
twin beds are very common in Central Europe. They’re simply one large
bed frame containing two single mattresses, both with separate duvets
and linen sets, that cannot be separated. Separate twin beds are less
common and can often be head to head beds, rather than side by side, if
they are available.

Kitzbühel Resort Info
Every keen skier has heard of Kitzbuhel and its famous Hahnenkamm downhill run. So what else can we tell you? It has its own 158km of runs, but nearly 700km if you include all the associated 'Kitzbuheler Alpen' resorts. The resort also offers a huge range of attractions - lots of cross-country, reasonable boarder facilities (but lots of draglifts), great intermediate and expert skiing, plenty of off-piste including challenging moguls for better skiers, a wide variety of terrain and slopes, great nightlife, accommodation for all budgets, excellent restaurants on and off the snow, short transfers and attractive buildings.
Of course there are a few disadvantages, some of which can slightly undermine the skiing/boarding. The snow record is poor and low altitude pistes, even with loads of snowmaking, can suffer. Because Kitzbuhel is so well-known, there can be long queues and crowds, even though lifts have been updated. Advanced skiers don't have much tough terrain. Kids don't get a great deal to play with, as non-skiing children have no kindergarten.
Finally, the resort itself is a bit of a sprawler and access to the slopes is inconvenient, even though the bus service is free and efficient. It's worth checking the location of your destination before you book.
Overall, Kitzbuhel still offers plenty of magic and, even if the total ski experience has a few stumbling blocks, there is always the town to play in…

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.
