INTRODUCTION High temperatures provided typical summer skiing conditions across the open European skiing location on Thursday 22nd June.

AUSTRIA Some clouds had moved in over the open Austrian summer skiing locations by Thursday 22nd June, although it was hotter than at the start of the week. This meant the snow cover swiftly softened during the morning skiing sessions at the open destinations, including Dachstein (260cm), Hintertux (200cm), Kaprun (100cm) and Molltal (290cm). The recent hot weather, as is often the case in the Alps in the summer, means there could now be some thunder and lightning over the coming days. Stubai is now closed for their summer skiing season. Unfortunately, following a conversation with the Otztal tourist board, it appears that Solden will not be open for skiing until October. Skiing should be available at Pitztal from 1st July.

In Canada, Whistler (150cm) offers only offers one public lane in the summer and some terrain features, as the rest of the terrain is prepared from the camps that are run on the summer skiing area. At Timberline (257cm), USA you can currently enjoy both the Mile Park and Mile Halfpipe.

AUSTRALIA It has got colder at the Australian resorts, which is good news. Cloudy weather is forecast over the weekend, which brings with it a chance of some fresh snow Perisher (25cm) and Thredbo (25cm) offer some of the best riding in Australia at the moment. Falls Creek (0/41cm) has a good base depth on the upper slopes, along with Mount Buller (3/35cm). Mount Hotham (15/30cm) is also in pretty good shape, especially considering the lack of natural snowfall across Australia this season. Here the slopes are reportedly firmly packed, and this provides excellent piste carving conditions Mount Baw Baw (0cm) is unfortunately closed at the moment due to the mild weather reducing the snow cover. Selwyn (0cm) was open over the weekend but as planned the resort's closed for snowsports during the week. As at Mount Baw Baw, Selwyn could really benefit from a good dump of snow Ben Lomond is yet to open for snowsports this season.
