Given their modest altitudes, it may come as a surprise to learn that Warth and Schröcken share the snowiest ski area in the Alps. Long term records taken at just 1600m show a seasonal average of nearly 11m of snow. Up top, this figure is higher still, putting Warth-Schröcken in the same snowfall league as Snowbird (Utah).

 

However, nowhere is perfect, and whilst the area does receive prodigious amounts of snow, its position right on the northern edge of the Alps does make it vulnerable to mild Atlantic winds, and snow quality can be variable.
