I’m a huge ski fan but you might struggle this year. I just had a look at the Obertauern webcams – the resort sits at 1700m but even that’s starting to look bare. they have colder weather and more snow forecast for the start of next week, but I’d be waiting until a few days before if you really want to go (on the plus side, avios seats may well open at the last minute). High temperatures also mean wet snow which makes the skiing very hard work. And don’t go thinking you can do this on the cheap. If you do it’ll be a miserable experience because it’ll be a schlep to and from the slopes etc.

As noted above, smaller resorts in Austria offer good value, as does Italy.
