October skiing on the Austrian glaciers

I have never quite understood how you can measure the snow depth on a glacier but there are far smarter people than me doing exactly that as the glaciers open for the autumn ski season.

Topping the table is the Hintertux Glacier that is open throughout the year with around half a metre of snow, whilst the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers at Solden, the Stubai Glacier and the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier have a small cover on top of the glacier ice. The Pitztal Glacier is open whilst the Kaunertal Glacier is opening as soon as the first snows of the winter season arrive.
