SNOW NEWS UPDATED 22 MAY 2017

INTRODUCTION In Europe the majority of our open resorts are in Austria, where the last snowfall was around 8cm at Stubai on Saturday 20th May. Good skiing is still on offer on the glacial resorts, with Hintertux and Dachstein looking particularly good at present. In Switzerland, Zermatt is the only resort open, where it was a cloudy start to the day that cleared into lovely sunny skies.

AUSTRIA A mixture of sun, cloud dominated the weather for our Austrian resorts on Monday 22nd May. Since our last report, Stubai (220cm) has been the only resort to receive fresh snow, where around 8cm fell on 20th May. Temperatures are warm, but not overly so, meaning that pistes are starting firm in the morning, and then softening into spring snow as the day go on. The highest recorded temperature of our featured resorts was at Dachstein Glacier (0/380cm), where the forecasts were suggesting around +9C at mid-mountain level Hintertux (280cm), in the Zillertal region had 13/20 lifts running, meaning that plenty of options were available up high. In Particular, the cruisy blue runs leading off Gr. Kaserer were looking in great shape for some fast carving turns. Expect changeable weather for most of the week to come, with plenty of cloud in the forecast. The weekend is predicted to be more pleasant, and may well bring a return to sunny skies.
