Snow Report - Austria : 5th February

Austria Ski Resort Snow Conditions

It is dumping it down with snow today (5th February) across Austria with heavy snow falling in to the valleys after an unseasonably warm spell last weekend. Over a metre is expected on upper slopes which will set things up brilliantly for the busy school holiday period in February. 

Heavy winds and high winds are affecting lift operation today however, sunshine is expected over the next few days when we are expecting some of the best conditions of this Winter Season!

If you are heading off-piste to enjoy the latest snow conditions, check local avalanche conditions, take a guide if you are unsure and stay safe. Avalanche levels are currently 3 (Significant) from 5 (and 4 in some places). Heavy snow + wind = danger! 

Around our resorts


There was 40cm of fresh snow higher up yesterday and a further 35cm expected today which will finally make up for what has been a fairly dry-ish  Winter to date. Stormy winds are affecting lifts today however, sunshine and cold temperatures are expected from tomorrow when skiers will enjoy the best piste and off-piste conditions of the Winter so far!

KITZBUEHEL  (56 cm lower, 85 cm upper)

There is limited lift operation in Kitzbuhel today due to the stormy conditions and around 30cm of fresh snow expected higher up. Sunshine is forecast from tomorrow with cold temperatures too which will make for some amazing skiing across the whole area. 

STUBAI  (35 cm lower, 350 cm upper)

As always, you can rely on Stubai to have a significant snowbase higher up however, most pistes and lifts are affected by the storms today. Sunny and very cold temperatures (-10C) are expected from tomorrow and there will be some great powder on offer.

SOLDEN  (124 cm lower, 386 cm upper)

Again, limited lift operations here today due to the high winds and heavy snow but sunshine and cold conditions on their way from tomorrow with excellent cover all over the resort.

ST ANTON   (100cm lower, 285cm upper)

St Anton is reporting over half a metre of new snow on its upper slopes from yesterday’s storm and this will tail off and clear this afternoon. Limited lifts and skiing today however…tomorrow will be epic!

ZELL am SEE – KAPRUN  (39cm lower, 130 cm upper)

More fresh snow in Zell am See today however limited lift operation due to the high winds. This changes tomorrow with sunshine expected and some great conditions expected on and off-piste.


After a relatively dry January, it has been great to see the heavy snowfall and cold temperatures of the last couple of days which has delivered some serious snow-depths and finally filled up the off-piste. Today’s storm should peter out and give way to sunshine and cold temperatures across Austria from 6th February. There is some more snow expected at the start of next week and temperatures are remaining cold. 

Conditions as we approach Half Term could not be better and are now looking good until April.
