Any Advice for Late Skiing in Europe - Early May 2015

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm traveling to Europe (southern Germany) in the next week and have the weekend of 2-3 May free. If I were so inclined, what locations in Austria and Switzerland (and maybe France) offer the best options for skiing in that time frame, given current weather and snow conditions?

I appreciate any/all recommendations.

Most resorts that are still open right now, have May 3 as their last ski day. Here's a list:

 

Resorts that close May 3rd or later:

Sölden (Austria)

Dachtstein (Austria)

Zugspitze (Germany/Austria)

St. Moritz (Switzerland)

Obertauern (Austria)

Ischgl (Austria)

Val Thorens (France)

Tignes & Val d'Isère (France)

Pitztalet Glacier (Austria)

Kaprun (Austria)

Engelberg (Switzerland)

Kaunertaler Glacier (Austria)

Mölltaler Glacier (Austria)

Zermatt (Switzerland)

Stubaier Glacier (Austria)

Hintertux Glacier (Austria)

 

I would go for one of the Austrian Glaciers. The Hintertux is the one with most opened lifts and runs I think. But all of these resorts have had 1-2 feet of fresh snow this weekend, and will get some more next Monday. Of the non-glacial resorts I would pick Obertauern. Make sure you check snow conditions, opened lifts and webcams before you go somewhere.

At Ischgl - http://www.ischgl.com/en/top-events-ischgl-tyrol/30stm_topevent217017

 

If you are in Southern Germany I would pick Ischgl, Solden, Hintertux, Stubai.  Switzerland may be too far away.

What about Zugspitze in South Germany!

It's worth a visit and I'm sure you will love it. It's very close to Munich and all facilities are open at the moment. You have more than 4 meters of snow there right now! Enjoy!!!
