Forecast

An area of low pressure is situated over Central Europe! Low pressure does not necessarily mean bad weather as each low contains areas of rain as well as bright areas. For today we should be pessimistic, however! Unfortunately, our region is at the heart of the main area of precipitation and we will get thick cloud and frequent rain.

Tendency

On Saturday the weather conditions will stabilise, which means that rainfall will become rarer and brighter spells more frequent. A lasting improvement in the weather is expected for Sunday.

Ski touring recommendations

This page will give you some ideas for ski tours in the region of Innsbruck. A great way to get a wonderful insight into the wonders of winter, especially under good conditions. These are, of course, only suggestions, as the final responsibility lies with the tourer to inform him or herself about current conditions before setting out.

Ski touring is a sport in which the risks should never be underestimated. We cannot accept any responsibility for snow conditions, avalanche risks and other outside influences. Every ski tourer is responsible for their own adequate avalanche protection and should check all current conditions with Tyrol's Avalanche Warning Service.
