Spring skiing at it,s best
Spring is not usually associated with skiing, but with the awakening of nature and the growth of plants. However, there are some advantages to skiing in spring, which may make some skiers prefer this time of year.
The biggest advantage of skiing in spring is the pleasant temperature. As the air quickly cools in winter and is often very cold, skiing can be unpleasant and tiring. However, as spring approaches, the sun becomes stronger and the air temperature becomes warmer, creating ideal conditions for skiing. Also, in spring, the day gets longer, so there is more light and time for skiing.
Another advantage of skiing in spring is the fewer crowds on the slopes. Many skiers no longer ski in the spring because the ski season is coming to an end and most people ski in winter, so the slopes are less busy. However, the warmth and sun can cause the snow on the slopes to melt and become slippery, which can make skiing difficult, so the sunny terraces are perfect for enjoying.
In summary, spring can be a good time for skiing due to the pleasant temperature and less crowded slopes, but there are also some disadvantages such as variable weather and unstable conditions on the slopes.
Obertauern offers everything
Obertauern is a popular ski resort in the Austrian region of Salzburg, known for its excellent skiing conditions throughout the season. However, skiing in Obertauern in the spring can be slightly different than in the winter months.
One of the main advantages of skiing in Obertauern in the spring is the pleasant temperature. There is enough snow so that the ski season can be extended until the first of May. Due to its location at an altitude of 1700 meters from where the cable cars start, there is enough snow. When there is no snow in other ski centers in this part of Austria, Obertauern still has enough.
