Has the cold temperatures and snow arrived? Love your pictures and any would be looked at with envy again lol?

Hi there, cold front just passing now with low cloud lifting. About 10 cm of new snow. Max today was -4.5c now falling to -9 c. Not as much wind as expected but could pick tomorrow. Log fire blazing, crap TV, no pub open. That means drinking too much red wine and eating. Had a good walk though.

A chilly NE wind today. Classic conditions for snow showers. Bright sunshine one minute then dark clouds and snow showers the next. Just great watching the fibrous tops to the shower clouds. Nice powdery snow and cold with current temp-6c and -10c on the berg.

Fantastic sunny morning. Yesterdays snow showers left a powdery covering. One of the coldest nights of the past few months, down to -14.6 c. We are told warmer weather on the way for Easter.

Waste of good snow unfortunately. Glad we decided to go skiing at Xmas/New Year rather than wait until Easter. The weather and snow might not have been great but at least we got to ski.

Yes it would have been busy in the higher resorts with good snow conditions. Can still get out to walk in it  but have to be alone. That does not bother me though ! Some fantastic views in the mountains and so very quiet. No sound of traffic or contrails in the sky and the birds are singing, at least they are happy ! Hotels and pubs have taken a big hit with loss in takings for the Easter breaks being stopped/ cancelled but are encouraged by bookings coming in for next season. Lets hope this dreadful virus starts to wane soon.

Nice winter scene last evening on approach to Zauchensee village. March /April snow ! Once the snow showers cleared, a super cold night followed down to -15c. Now brilliant sunshine for April Fools Day.

Nice Sunday morning in the nature preserve that is the Gontal valley.  Alpine meadows coming out of winter hibernation at long last .

After a very warm and dry April that sadly went to waste because of *gestures wildly*, it hasn't really stopped raining in the last 60 hours, and there is still another 24 hours to go. Talk of 200mm in total, which isn't so unusual close to the Mediterranean but would be notable here. Snowline fluctuating wildly between 1500m and 2500m.

A light covering of snow this morning and temp around 1c in village. Still plenty of snow cover above 1800m as the rather cold spring continues in the Eastern Alps. Ski-ing would have still been possible on the prepared pistes down to many of the villages above 1500m. Current temp -2.5c at 2000m level.
