Summer Snow in the Alps

Austria has had some snow and there’s been a dusting elsewhere. Summer snow is not unusual and has helped refresh the glaciers open for skiing. Check out the pictures.

At altitude in the Tirol there is more – much more.

Which is lucky as it has some glacier resorts that are open for skiing and snowboarding now, with others opening next month.

Here is Pitztal on Wednesday morning after the clouds lifted.
