Solden snow report 08/02/2013
Here is the latest snow report from our team in Solden
There is 250cm of snow at the top of the Solden ski area with 25cm in resort. 7cm of snow fell in the ski area yesterday with more on its way.
100% of the ski runs are open in Solden with 29 of the 33 ski lifts also open.
The clouds are forecast to thicken up later on, bringing more snow to Solden and this is set to continue into Saturday until eventually easing off into Sunday. The temperatures are staying extremely low, with lows reaching minus 22 on the glacier!!! And up to minus 30 with wind chill!! At mid station temperatures are around minus 15, and these chilly temperatures are set to continue into Sunday, and will eventually start to rise into Monday. The start of next week is looking milder and a little clearer than this week.
With yet more fresh snow on the slopes, skiers are spoiled with the fantastic quality of soft powder snow! Beware the avalanche risks are very high – with a snowboarder being buried on Wednesday – so if you go off-piste to find the waist-deep powder, make sure you do so with the correct equipment and a specialist guide!! Temperatures are staying very low, which is good for the snow, but rather chilly up on the glacier – so make sure you layer up!
Today at the Giggijoch Fun-Zone, the Maxxx Mountain Solden Party are bringing you Beatstreet from 1pm until 4:30pm – with funk/soul covers, it will without a doubt get you into the groove and definitely worthwhile stopping by for a beer or two!!
Tonight there is a special event on at STYLE, where they are teaming up with the bar, SnowRock upstairs, to bring you a karaoke party to celebrate the launch of their new jeans range. The trendy clothes shop will be open longer, so what’s better than a shopping and singing soiree?!
If you fancy a more traditional affair, then head to Die Alm on Sunday evening, where they have a weekly Austrian music event. This week, local duo, Wildspitz Baum,who will be keeping the audience entertained with a combination of guitar and accordion music.
