The cold weather has dumped up to a meter of fresh snow on the Arlberg in the last few days. The ski areas of Carinthia and East Tyrol can only dream of this at the moment. The 2023/24 winter season starts in a few weeks. Gerlitzen begins elevator operations on December 1. It’s December 7th in Bad Kleinkirchheim. Is Mrs. Holle well-intentioned by then and shaking their bed vigorously? Ubimet meteorologist Konstantin Brandes has no good news for the ski areas: “Almost zero precipitation is expected in Carinthia and East Tyrol in the next ten days until the end of November. If so, then only in the northern parts of the country. But the quantities are small.” The reason for this is the currently dominant west-northwest location. An Adriatic low will be needed for greater amounts of snow in the south.
