There's been some heavy snowfall reported on high altitude glacier slopes in Salzburgerland, Austria,for the start of summer.
The Kitzsteinhorn glacier - one of just half-a-dozen currently open for snowsports in the Alps - posted the picture above this morning. It reports 20cm of fresh snow and a snow depth of 165cm.
However ther other ski areas currently open, including Huintertux in Austyria, Zermatt in Switzerland and Les 2 Alpes, Tignes and Val d'Isere in France, have not reported any significant snowfall in the past few days.
Snow bases are generally good though at 1.5-3 metres and morning temperatures around freezing 3000m up.
The Kitzsteinhorn has been open for nearly 10 months since last autumn and won't end its 2017-18 ski season until July 22nd.
