Autumn in Austria - Glacier Skiing

Autumn in Austria is always a great time of year to take in the autumnal colours which are stunning. It is often warm enough enough to be in shirt sleeves in the valley bottom while looking up and seeing a sprinkling of the first snows on the mountain tops.

There were plenty of friendly folk out there, all too ready to stop and listen, as depicted in the photographs before and after a mulled wine!

Its interesting to see the changes that have taken place since your last visit to an area, the Austrian are an hard working type, not ones to sit back on their laurels. It is satisfying to see new buildings going up, old buildings being extended, extensions to cycle paths, and continuing improvements all round ready for the new ski season.

Up on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier above Kaprun, where skiing is possible all year round, the Volvo XC ice camp has been enhanced by three snow parks, DC Central Park, Roxy Park and a super-pipe. This means there are up to 70 obstacles have been provided for your enjoyment, the super pipe promises to be over 150 meters long.
