It just won’t stop snowing

With the weather charts for the Austrian Alps showing several days of further snow, the deluge that began in the second week on January shows no sign of abating. To make conditions even more spectacular – the breaks in the snow have been cold and sunny and the conditions during these interludes have been nothing short of epic. Conditions this winter are following a really similar pattern to last winter, a moderately cold and snowy autumn (although autumn 2011 saw a month of dry, cloudless skies), followed by December dumps, a break in the snow over Christmas and New Year and then seriously regular snow from early January onwards. I have heard grumblings along the lines of ‘enough snow now’ from friends outside of the winter-sports industry but save those who are hoping for a February tan, conditions really are fantastic. Snow is forecast right through the weekend in Innsbruck but when the next break in the clouds arrives there will be a whole lot of drenched trees and powder stashes in view.
