Snow Conditions in Austria (17 April 2014)
Thursday 17th April was a predominantly sunny day across the open Austrian resorts, bringing a change to the weather. Earlier this week fresh snowfall blessed many Austrian resorts and improving the on and off piste snow cover.
The heaviest snowfall has been reported on the higher ski areas, such as on the Stubai Glacier at Neustift (20/365cm), Obergurgl (35/128cm), Kaprun (120/280cm) and Kuhtai (60/90cm).
The skiing at Zauchensee (55/110cm) was excellent on Thursday with fresh snow across much of the off-piste terrain and piste conditions that were more akin to mid-winter than spring.
Cloudy weather is forecast to return to the Austrian resorts over the weekend and throughout next week. The freezing level is also expected to sit at or above 2,500m which means that many slopes could see rain.
