There was good skiing on offer in Austria on Thursday. For the best conditions look to Hintertux or Solden, where there was some nice riding to be found under blue skies. Elsewhere, resorts such as Molltal and Kaprun are offering some well-groomed slopes, but the weather was less favourable, and visibility was limited.
In France there was 30cm of fresh snow overnight in Espace Killy at Tignes, and conditions up on the Grand Motte glacier are looking very good at present. Further south in Les Deux Alpes, there was plenty of sunshine and lots of good on piste options.
