Looking good for wide-spread snow in the Austrian mountains from Sunday! :) The weather website wetter.at predicts:

"the largest new snowfall (will be) in the Hohen Tauern mountain ranges - up to 60 centimeters by Tuesday."

Snow accumulation up to Sunday: Austrian Snow forecast on 03Nov wetter.de.jpe

Full report in Austrian: http://www.wetter.at/wetter/oesterreich-wetter/Eis-Schnee-im-Anmarsch/257232926

Edit: Just spotted that wetter.at are reporting in a separate article that:

"In the winter of 2015/2016, the number of arrivals (+ 5%) and 68.5 million overnight stays (+ 4%) reached record levels...."

Well done Austria! And with plans to invest a further 700 million Euros in their lift systems, visitors numbers are surely set to continue growing.

Morning all. Katschberg just won best Ski resort for 80km and under. I am not surprised as the runs are just magical. Looking forward to the snowfall on Sunday. A few pictures of some of the pistes around the village.

Snowy village scene in nearby village of St Margaretten in the Lungau. A bit lower here at 1200m asl, the bottom ski station from the higher Katschberg runs.

A quote from Carinthian from the same day last year...

"Another cloudless morning dawns. Sunshine and warmth all the way until 17/18th of this month. The picture below shows only snow on 3000m plus peaks."

Polar opposite, if you'll excuse the pun...

Hi Seaside 60, yes its stunning ok. I have been here since 2005 and probably the best I have seen it for Early/ Mid November. Lets hope it stays after a the next couple of days warm up but should freeze at night still. The Polar Front sinks again at weekend so should get a top up hopefully.

Morning all Wow what a morning. -20c vicious snow squalls and sunshine. Lower to middle runs have fresh powder snow. Mountain top storm bound and lifts closed for higher runs, -22c at 2250m but wind chill will make feel much colder.  Reminds of my days in The Lake Louise back bowls for severe cold affect. Love it.
