Snow hauling in from the north west

Austria and Switzerland have been the beneficiaries of the latest late summer snow systems to arrive in the Alps. Both Zermatt and Saas Fee have had decent dumps whilst the north west of the Austria Alps have been seeing some good very early season deposits, with the Arlberg and the Bregenzerwald region getting the very best of the system - nothing new there!

The glaciers on the southern border with Italy have the advantage of height but when snow systems approach from the north west then they can be pretty exhausted by the time that they reach the Stubai and Zillertal valleys, whilst Pitztal and Kaunertal can see good deposits. It is ironic that Switzerland gives up much of its snow to the far north western section of the Austrian Alps with the Bregenzerwald region the first to receive the frigid, wet weather as it crosses the plains of southern Germany and north east Switzerland - surely the Austrians have a double reason to celebrate this snow? Sunny and more seasonal September weather over the weekend is forecast for the middle of next week along with dropping temperatures and more precipitation heading for this region again.
