Austrian Ski & Glacier Resorts Snow and Skiing Conditions Reports. Austria Skiing Season 2015 - 2016 Holiday Packages

(last updated - 8 April 2015)

Great conditions are still present across most of the skiing and snowboarding areas of Austria that we report on, but this is mainly valid for the higher slopes. Some fresh snow fell on the highest regions, while it was raining lower down. The spring is slowly creeping up, yielding a bit slushy base... The skies are very changable - cloudy and snowy at moments, limiting the visibility but mostly clear and sunny at the lower ski vilages. Still the snow base is very good in general, maybe a bit heavy at the lowest altitudes. All, Seefeld, Fieberbrunn, Obergurgl and Kuhtai (100 cm) received 5 - 15 cm of fresh powder yesterday. Kaunertal (240 - 321 cm), Kitzbuhel, Zauchensee, Ischgl, Mayrhofen, Zell am See, Bad Gastein, Bad Hofgastein and Saalbach - Hinterglemm are still open for the season and in good shape.
Hintertux, the Stubai glacier (33 - 265 cm; 22 lifts running), Pitztal (220 - 300 cm), Neustift, Kaprun's Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, Solden, Flachau and the Moltal glacier are open too and all of them are offering excellent Spring skiing and boarding, although under cloudy skies today.

The Ski Welt area - Soll, Ellmau, Scheffau, Hopfgarten and Westendorf is currently being accessed by nearly 100 lifts in operation.
The region of Serfaus / Fiss / Ladis had around a half of the above lifts running today.

In the Arlberg region, St Anton and Lech / Zurs (100 - 180 cm) are in fantastic shape for the early Spring. Most lifts were in operation today in the Ski Juwel area including the villages of Niederau, Wildschonau and Alpbach.

The off-piste conditions across most ski regions of Austria are also in decent shape, but at many areas still is valid the warning for avalanches, so be careful!.
Naturally, around Easter some resorts have put an end to the season. That includes Bad Kleinkirchheim, St Johann in Tyrol, Seefeld, Igls, Filzmoos, Brand and St Wolfgang.
The skies are expected to stay cloudy and snowy, the temperatures will get lower around the end of this week.
Please note that some skiing areas may be partially open and this information might has changed since we have published it, so it is recommended to contact the Austrian Tourist Office before travelling or get more recent information at the official website of the particular ski resort you are planning to visit.
