Lech Snow Reports, 19 Mar 2010

Lunch on the piste, Lech100% of the runs in the Arlberg area are open as well as all 84 lifts. There is 115cm of snow in resort and 180cm up on the Steinmahd at 2300m.

The snowfall earlier this week has now been worked by the snow cats to give excellent on-piste skiing conditions.  The off-piste skiing below mid station level now has a crust to it but powder can still be found off-piste in the higher areas. Spring conditions are now being experienced.

A fantastic variety of terrain is available on the 255km of pisted slopes. Zurs, with its higher snow base level, continues to offer the premium skiing conditions in the area.

Today it is expected to be a bright day with light winds and mild temperatures and a maximum temperature at resort level of 3⁰ C.  The next two days are expected to be similar with slightly cloudier skies.
