INTRODUCTION Great skiing remains on offer across our featured Austrian resorts. Hintertux continues to provide some of the best conditions, whilst resorts such as Kaprun and Dachstein Glacier also boast impressive snow depths.

AUSTRIA Good skiing was on offer across all of the Austrian resorts that were open for skiing on Thursday 26th May. The pick of the conditions was towards the Zillertral Valley, where Hintertux (330cm) had 12 lifts serving some fantastic glacier skiing. In Obergurgl at Kaunertal (146/209cm) snow dpeths remain impressive and could be bolstered further by the chance of snow today. The weekend's weather is likely to be unsettled, thunderstorms are predicted in many areas which could potentially cause problems with the running of the lifts.
