But half a dozen Austrian glacier ski areas remain open through June including Kaunertal, Kitzsteinhorn and Tux. The Stubai glacier, which currently has a 3.5 metre (12 foot) base, added 10cm (four inches) of fresh snow - the ski season here began last September, more than eight months ago!
Elsewhere The Molltal glacier remains open until this Sunday when it will close for five weeks, the Pitztal glacier a little longer, to late May. Meanwhile the Dachstein Glacier is closed for most of May, re-opening on the 31st.
