Snow Overview - Austria (snow news updated 22-Apr-2014)
The majority of resorts in Austria have now closed for the season following the relatively busy Easter period. Some fresh snow has fallen over the last week though, which is great news for the resorts that are still open.
15cm of fresh snow has been reported in the Arlberg area, which includes Lech (15/40cm), Zurs (15/40cm) and St Anton (15/115cm). This is the last week of the winter ski season for this area.
You can still enjoy skiing at the higher ski areas in Austria too, including the likes of Obergurgl (33/149cm), Kaprun (120/260cm), Hintertux (30/400cm), Neustift (100/365cm), Kuhtai (60/90cm), Kaunertal (305/343cm), Pitztal (239/322cm) and Solden (0/314cm). Fugen (0/70cm), Galtur (20/85cm), Ischgl (0/80cm) and Kiztbuhel (0/66cm) may not have the depths of some of the glacier skiing areas but you can still enjoy good spring skiing at these resorts too.
Cloudy weather is expected to dominate this week and with the freezing level rising up to 3,000m most slopes will could receive rain.
