Obergurgl snow report 15.01.2013

Here is the latest snow report from our team in Obergurgl.

There is 190cm of snow at the top of the Obergurgl ski area and 85cm in resort. There is more snow forecast for the next few days, around 15cm.

All 21 of the lifts are open with 31 of the 34 runs open also.

Another 15cm of snow is forecast , then clearing up towards the end of the week. Temperatures are moderate at the moment but cooling down as the days go on. Clearer nights are bringing in the coolest temperature with lows of around -22 degrees.

I really can’t tell you how good the pistes are at the moment. Resort is not too busy so the pistes not only have amazing snow but also hardly anyone on them as well! As I sit looking over the nursery slope the pommer lift has hardly any one on it, and fewer people coming down the slope! Yesterday had moderate snow all day and even some of the runs were covered in fresh powder.  Have found my new favourite mountain hut – the Kirchenkarhut – it’s at the top of red 20 and blue 21 and it’s so cosy. It’s at the top of a Tbar lift so I think some people avoid it, but it’s definitely worth a visit. Soups and snacks on the menu, I could easily have had a second bowl of the gulasch soup it was that nice!

The American ski team have been spotted again, this time in Hochgurgl on red 20 (not my reason for finding my new favourite hut at all..!)
