Snow Conditions in Austria (11 August 2014)
Dense clouds greatly affected the visibility at the two open Austrian skiing resorts on Monday 11th August. Both Hintertux (235cm) and Molltal (290cm) were open but recent wet weather and mild temperatures have reduced the base depth at these resorts. At Hintertux the depth has dropped from 235cm on Thursday 7th August to 195cm on Monday, while Molltal has seen the snow go from 290cm to 270cm over the same period.
Further wet weather is forecast this week although snow could fall later in the week as the freezing level is expected to drop to around 3,000m.
