Day 6: The last runs at Niederau

By on January 9, 2015 in Austria, General

Caught the ski bus back from Auffach to Niederau for a last couple of runs.

Took the main gondola up the mountain and skied the routes to the left. The snow was suprisingly slushy. It was spring skiing in January. It was also windy, but as the snow was very slushy it wasn’t blowing away!

Niederau is in need of fresh snow. The cover is very thin and there is a lot of brown snow around (brown snow will absorb heat faster and melt, and also won’t re-freeze so easily). Today was also very warm so a lot of snow would have been lost.
