Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Not surprised at all Stanton. It's a lovely country, nice people and great scenery and skiing.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

It was pretty busy in February, the first week especially (Wienerwoche), and the great conditions season-long have no doubt contributed.

What??? It’s an awful country with dull, low elevation ski resorts. Just got lucky with snow this year. Will be back to terminal decline next year

Austria is one of richest countries in the world with Tourism making up over 15% of GDP for a small country that is huge..

Something they will need to protect..

Have yor actually been skiing in Austria?

I ask because I've skied Ischgl 1 week a year for the last 10 years, both early and late season and never had major snow issues. Sure the bottoms of the home runs go a little slushy by April and you might need to gt the gondola down if you're there for the last week of April but the majority of the pistes will still be open at the top.

The only place I've experienced this is in France (start of season in PdS 2016/17). At the same time all runs and lifts were open in Ischgl (as a friend was happy to point out).

OK, that doesn't mean EVERY resort in France was green and EVERY resort in Austria had snow but maybe you've just been to the wrong Austrian resorts...

Must be a good season for skiing across Europe - Tignes accom bookings 5.5% higher than last year. Given that all the lower French resorts were going at full tilt by Christmas must mean overall there are a lot more skiers this year.

Just teasing Stanton. I’ve only been to Austria twice and loved it both times - Arlberg in winter and Tyrol in Summer

Fair-weather skiers - they exist in surprisingly large numbers - they are the ones getting in your way on the piste.
Snow on the ground around your own home will always remind you that you should be skiing. It was quite a snowy winter in Europe generally this year and it brought them all out!

GDP isn't wealth. National Net Wealth is wealth - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_wealth

UK 4th. I got tired looking downwards before I finally spotted NL.

Austria deserves to do well in tourism. Great place.
