It's a mixed picture elsewhere in Austria however. Although Tux is still open, as it invariably is, with one of the largest ski areas available anywhere at present, complete with more than 90cm of snow, and the Molltal glacier likewise, with a 1.3m base and 9.5km of runs, on the Kitzsteinhorn above Kapun temperatures are up above freezing again but so's the snowdepth - now 75cm, more than 60cm/two feet greater than when the slopes were "temporarily closed" due to lack of snow last month. They remain temporarily closed. As does the Dachstein glacier which looks to be in a slightly sorrier state with only 20cm of snow left on the glacier which it describes as, "wet."
Things are looking better at not-yet-open Austrian ski areas like the Stubai which is also reporting fresh snow. The Pitztal glacier, with Austria's highest slopes, is scheduled to open a week today for their long season through to May 2011
