Skiing conditions at present

Hi guys what are skiing conditions like at present. We will be arriving on Saturday for one week. Some reports I have seen over the past few days have not been good, some resorts closed due to very bad weather. I am watching snow report etc but first hand knowledge is always best.

Thank you in advance.

Plenty of snow just that there has been horrendous weather. The weather has calmed down and likely to stay that way.

Generally West Tirol/Arlberg has had weather related issues. Not just high winds and snow storms but inevitably Avalanche risks.

The Avalanche risk reached 4 (max 5) and remained at theat level for a number of days.

In recent days the problem not so much the weather (although not particularly good) but actually Avalanche risk continued due to the huge amount of snow. This has meant that some areas have had to be closed.

Even the roads between Ischgl and Kappl and Ischgl and Galtür were closed. Once cleared they remained closed at night (after 22:30) - again safety issues not because they were blocked by snow.

These roads are now open. No reported issues.

Issue still remain in other resorts in the area where some access roads are still closed due to Avalanche risk and the roads authority is still trying to deal with fallen trees (weakened by the wind then heavy snow "pushing" them down)

The rail service between Innsbruck and Bludenz (serving Landeck for Ischgl and St Anton) was severely disrupted.

Weather nice today. Forecast is for nice weather tomorrow. Generally the forecast is sunny with cloudy intervals for the next week. No snow forecast. Daytime temperatures dropping expecting it to be somewhere between -7C and -10C (nighttime -12C to -15C)

Maybe the odd snow flurry next Friday.

Be nice if they are right - but then again they didn't predict the severity of the snow they had.
