Snow Conditions in Austria (27 August 2015)
Thursday was a gloriously sunny day across the Austrian Alps, with clear blue skies above both the Molltal (90cm) and Hintertux (75cm) glaciers. The temperatures were soaring too, with the freezing level rising well above the mountain peaks. As a result the pistes are very soft and worn, although both ski areas continued to struggle on despite the thin snowpack. Expect this weather pattern to continue into and over the weekend.
