Austria Snow Report and Forecast to December 8th, 2017

STORY BY Patrick Thorne 2nd December 2017

More than half of Austria’s top ski areas are now open – that’s getting towards 100 ski areas.

Amongst the big name ski centres opening for the first time this week are Lech (pictured top and below) in the Arlberg region – which has had a particularly strong build up to the season with loads of November snowfall.

It reported 150km of terrain open in the Arlberg area and a 70-110cm opening base.

There was more healthy snowfall in the middle of last week with many Austrian resorts seeing 15-30cm of fresh snow.

Big winners included the Stubai glacier which got yet another 40cm in 24 hours at the end of November, about the fourth or fifth 40cm+ snowfall there in an exceptionally snowy November.

Genialer Saisonstart 😎

Zell am See and Ski Juwel got 20cm in 24 hours each at the same time whilst Schladming and the Silvretta regions got 30cm each last weekend in the previous big snowfall.

It’s expected to keep snowing in to next week with another 20-30cm expected by the 5th at many Austrian areas.
