PowderAlert #3: you should go to these resorts!

By meteomorris on 30 November 2017 · 0

Powder Alert # 3 is in effect from Thursday November 30th until Monday December 4th. But where to go? Not all ski areas are open yet, but we've made a list for you where the lifts will be running the next couple of days and where the base is good. Remember that it is still early season and there are three risks that you have to take into account:

  1. There are still plenty of crevasses on the glaciers that haven't been snowed in.
  2. There's plenty of snow, but the snow cover can still be a bit thin locally. Think about rocks and branches that could result in injuries.
  3. When there's enough snow to ride, there's enough snow to slide: avalanches

Want access to the most comprehensive online backcountry snow safety courses for skiers and snowboarders? Use code "WEARESKIING1718", valid until the beginning of March, to get access for only 9€ (Reg: 29€). Go to Mountain Academy and start now!

Check out the list of ski areas that are open or will open soon below. There's a good base in these resorts and they'll get snow the next 48 hours. Click on the link to go to the resort page for a more detailed weather forecast, webcams, the local avalanche forecast and accommodation options.

Switzerland, Zentralschweiz

Switzerland, Berner Oberland/Vaude

Switzerland, Ostschweiz

Switzerland, Graubünden


Austria, Vorarlberg

Austria, Carinthia

  • Nassfeld (A couple of lifts will open on Saturday)


Austria, Salzburgerland

The resorts close to the Hohe Tauern already had a good amount of snow and more snow is expected on Thursday. The snow cover is still pretty thin in the resorts at lower altitudes.

Austria, Styria


Austria, Tyrol

The conditions aren't as good in Tyrol as the are in the other regions (except on the glaciers and St. Anton am Arlberg). Fieberbrunn could be an option, but the snow cover is still pretty thin.
