Austria Snow Report and Forecast to February 17th, 2018

It has been a largely snowfall-free week in Austria with just a few small snowfalls of 5 or 6 centimetres total reports by resorts including St Anton and the Stubai glacier at the start of the weekend.

More snowfall, in similar volumes, is expected at the start of this week, but no big falls, so it should have the effect of freshening up the slopes rather than causing any logistical issues.

Snow depths across the country remain exceptionally good with higher slopes reporting at least 3 metres (10 feet) of snow cover; the Kaunertal glacier topping the table with 5.6m (nearly 19 feet) of snow lying.

Temperatures are expected to stay pretty low for the week ahead with perhaps more snowfall towards the end of the week.
