Austria has four ski areas open again, more than any other northern hemisphere country, following the Molltal glacier re-opening at the weekend and has 9km of runs open, served by three lifts with 250cm (eight feet) of snow.
On the Kitzsteinhorn glacier above Kaprun the snow is a metre thick at the top of the glacier but only 5cm is left at the Alpincentre which you can currently ski down to, but perhaps not for much longer.
The Dachstein Glacier has 180cm of snow on the glacier and two lifts, two runs and a terrain park open. Their ice palace under the glacier has also seen the arrivals of giant frozen ice sculptures of The Simpsons.
The Tux glacier, which is open virtually year round, has one of the biggest ski areas open at present with 20km of runs served by nine lifts and a 550m vertical.
It's colder and the snow is in better shape In Norway where three glacier areas remain open. Folgefonn has a two metre base, Galdhøpiggen four metres lying and Stryn 4.5 metres - the deepest any open ski area is currently reporting anywhere.
