    Hi,

    After the November snow we had not much to report until today.

    Well winter has finally arrived this week. Temps down to -10oC ( amazing since last Friday 10 oC !! :lol: ) Snow showers since last Sunday - quite a lot on the mountain ( about 20 cm )but only about 5 cm in the village. We missed the big storm that hit Germany and sounthern Austria earlier this week. Total chaos in southern Germany. Don't believe people when they say snow only disrupts UK- there were still accidents on the auto bahns!!.

    But we now have about 20 cm so far and looking at the radar over Germany still lots more to come. :lol: This type of situation usually gives us a lot of snow - a northerly over Germany. We are the first mountains it hits and it just takes all the moisture it carries. You can see it building up as it hits the mountains. On the map we are are about half way due south between Salzburg and the border with Italy.

    Currently -3oC and the skiing should be excellent now!! Although we have only lost 1 day of skiing ( last Friday) since the resorts opened on the 15th December.

    I don't think we will get up to the levels last year but it does mean less snow clearing . Today we have already needed our snow chains to get up our road, and I also had to put them on the guests mini-bus so they could et up the road as well!!

    Here are some photos of today:-

    Great to see one of my favourite areas getting snow at last. Nice atmospheric pictures there too, Nigel.

    I drove through Austria in 2005, i wished i had the time to stop for more than an hour or two.

    I'll be back there for much longer in the next few years with any luck. :rolleyes:

    Lovely pictures, thank you for taking the time away from the fun to post :hi:
