Just like in the French northern Alps and Switzerland, an active depression brought snow to Austria. Especially the west and to a lesser extent the Austrian main alpine ridge got the most snow. It wasn't as much snow as in Switzerland or France, but the start of the winter is here. Where did the snow fall in Austria this weekend?
The most snow came down in the Vorarlberg and the west of Tyrol. Because it was too warm initially, the glaciers in the main ridge ridge also got some freshies. It was snowing pretty much everywhere (even in Kärnten), but Voralberg got the most snow. Below you'll see some data from Saturday morning.
Another 20 centimeters of snow came down in Vorarlberg between Saturday afternoon and Monday morning. The other regions in Austria didn't get that much snow, but enough to show some nice images.

If there'll be another dump in Vorarlberg and the western parts of Tyrol, they can open the lifts. The conditions are already great on the glaciers. The other regions in Austria need more snow.

Conclusion: the first base is there and there's even more snow on the maps. Vorarlberg will be your best bet. The glacier resorts also have great conditons, but stay on the slopes.
