Some snow settling in Obertauren. This is Edelweiss Pub, one of my favourite stops at 2000m absl.

So that's where all the ski racks hide up for the summer! Hope they enjoyed their holiday - they'll soon be back at work! :)

Quite a dramatic live shot of snow falling at 2000m and rainfall at 1850m. Just shows how marginal rain to snow events can be with height difference.

I love this thread:) It looks like Edelweisspitze has had another fall of snow, rather wet-looking this time: http://edelweissspitze.panomax.at. It is very foggy on the web cams around there today, Lauberhorn has an amazing contrast between the sun and the fog atop the valley: http://panocam.skiline.cc/lauberhorn

I have also been watching the Les Arcs Vagere web cam, where full preparations for the season seem to be underway by means of the ground being laid with, well whatever it is those tractors and diggers lay down! A while before snow arrives there I imagine.

Great Reefseeker, just having our first snow shower of the season. Temperature in the village is -3c presently and -5c at 2000m level. Fresh NEly . You can see the snow falling out of the shower clouds. Many of the peaks around here have a fresh covering of snowfall. Chopping plenty of wood for the season ! Looking at the reports further NE of here plenty of snow in the mountains of  Poland and Slovakia. I love it when you can smell snow and cold in the air. May be get some pictures in the morning of a snow cover here.

Nice to see the 528 dam thickness right over me for the middle of next week. I can see plenty of snow on the tops around here but excited again at touching the real stuff again.. Must be mad at my age, Worse than when I was kid, I just stand for hours looking at the sky , my wife and neighbours think I am strange !

Lovely Sunday morning. Snow shower last night settled at 1800m level on the local mountains. Feels crisp and wintery.

Wonderful photo! Love the fog in the valley and the interesting looking cumulus bubbling up over the peaks in the distance. :)

It's snowing at Edelweisspitze:) http://edelweissspitze.panomax.com/

And you think you're strange Carinthian? I spend all my spare minutes at work looking at webcams of anywhere there might be mountains and snow!

The snow stopped at 4pm yesterday. A clear night with temp down to -3c. Panoramic view of the village and surrounding mountain this morning. The mountain range in the far background includes Gross Glockner, the highest mountain in Austria.

That looks lovely @carinthian. Some of the local webcams in your region look like snow paradise this morning: https://webtv.feratel.com/webtv/?cam=5366&design=v3&c0=0&c2=0&c6=0&lg=en&pg=5EB12424-7C2D-428A-BEFF-0C9140CD772F&s=0

Edit: following Carinthian's message below, here is the link to the Obertauren webcams for any other snow-obsessed addicts: http://www.obertauern.com/en/service-info/webcam.html

Hi Reefseeker, the feratel web cams are just amazing. Also, check out a neighbour resort of Obertauren, usually one of the snowiest in Austria. Good viewing.

@carinthian You have sold it to me. Looking to bring my 2 kids during Feb half term. What's it like during Feb. Wanted to bring them for the Easter break. But can't get the time off work.

Good choice Due South. At 1650m Abel always snow. The Hotel Cristallo has fantastic facilities for children and adults and right on the slopes. This hotel is in The Neilson ski broucher but cheaper to book on their on line website,although at half term would be pricey,but that's the case everywhere. The ski ing super easy for most with great pistes in top condition. Do not book ski hire or lift pass with Nelson. You can do this at the hotel as they have their own ski hire and better stock. Pay on your check out at the hotel on credit card and you will not get billed for another month ?  Good luck and pleased to see you wanting to come to Katschberg,sure you will love it and want to come back!

There's something special about being in the mountains when the first really good fall of snow transforms the scene into a magical winter wonderland. And the fantastic images from @carinthian this last couple of days have really been a joy to look at.

To add my tuppence worth and illustrate the transformation, I've taken the two images below from the Bergfex webcam website where you can look at archive shots. http://www.bergfex.com/oesterreich/

Katschberg Tues Katschberg Tue 18Oct.jpg and today Katschberg Fri 21 Oct.jpg

I've said it once and I'll say it again - you're a lucky bloke being over there Paul!! :)

Morning all. OK our recent snowfall getting slushy and melting away as warmer air mass takes over for the next 24 hours. Don't think there will be much left below 1500 m by the end of the day. Have attached a picture from last winter that views the village and its runs at its winter best. Hopefully, we can soon see scenes like this again.

Hello Reefseeker, yes we have a light covering here from the front that clipped us last night. Can see the snow showers to the North of us affecting the Obertauren Range but not depositing much. But turned much colder today and forecast for some snowfalls generally on Sunday. Hopefully enough for us to start work on the piste foundations as cold temperatures are expected.
