      PowderGuide • 05/27/2024
      Attention to all mountaineering enthusiasts among you: The screws on the Neve Strap crampon (green version 2024) can loosen, causing the heel cup to come off the crampon. Those affected can return the crampons.

      PowderGuide leaves into summer break 2024

      PowderGuide • 05/17/2024
      Dear readers, another season is drawing to a close, editorial content has already become scarcer in the last two weeks and the PowderGuide editorial team is slowly going into summer hibernation. And yet this year is different than usual! For the first time, our weather service is NOT taking a summer break! And of course neither is the development team...

      WeatherBlog 22 2023/24 | Another southern storm to end the season

      Lea Hartl • 05/01/2024
      The WeatherBlog is taking a summer break, unless there's another onset of winter with corresponding blog inspiration in between. Over the next few days, the south-west will be in full swing again - there would probably be a PowderAlert if our oracle wasn't already in summer mode.

      TouringTip | Wildspitze Southcouloir

      Malte Schulz • 04/27/2024
      For many ski tourers, the Wildspitze is a favourite classic in spring. The summit can be reached quickly via the Mittelbergjoch and the Taschachferner via the Pitztal glacier lifts. The only drawback of this tour: due to the very low gradient, it is not very rewarding in terms of downhill skiing. In terms of the descent, the tour via the Southcouloir is much more appealing (assuming you have the ability and experience to tackle steep slopes). This route takes you to the highest peak in Tyrol "by fair means" and by the most direct route.

      WeatherBlog 21 2023/24 | Winter restart - how could this happen?

      Sebastian Müller • 04/24/2024
      Ein bisserl Neuschnee auch in den Dolomiten
      A short while ago we were water-skiing or riding bikes, and now, at the end of April, we suddenly find ourselves in winter. How could this have happened? It's cold throughout the Alps and it's snowing quite a lot, especially on the northern slopes. If you really missed it, 2 PowderAlarms and rows of 4-star ConditionsReports should be enough proof. Powder skis should be the first choice up to and including the weekend!

      TouringTip | Lungau

      Helmut Gassler • 04/21/2024
      The Lungau is a landscape (and at the same time a political district) in the south-east of Salzburg and offers several advantages and attraction points for us downhill-orientated ski tourers thanks to its geographical location.

      PowderAlert 15 2023/ 24 | All good things must come to an end!

      Lars Oelmann • 04/19/2024
      With this last nordstau, Ullr is sending us what could be the last cold snowfall suitable for weekends and the oracle is using this opportunity to bid a highly official farewell to the summer break, as medium range forecast does not look like there will be any more wintry surprises until the end of April.

      TouringTip | Five days in the Silvretta

      Benjamin Kraft • 04/18/2024
      After our annual ski crossing was cancelled last year due to the lack of snow in the Alps, we really wanted to discover new places again this winter and spend several days in mountain huts. Our main criteria for this were to find an area that was previously unknown to all of us, that could be reached from Innsbruck within two hours and where there were many different options for experiencing nature.

      PowderGuide • 04/16/2024
      Winter is slowly coming to an end, even if the fresh snow maps on the PG-ICON weather forecast are once again turning colourful this week. In the meantime, we are continuing to work on the weather maps on We have refreshed the portfolio once again to provide the travellers among you with reliable snow and weather data. Our forecast maps are now also available for Norway and Scandinavia, the Caucasus and the Pyrenees! A search function has also been integrated into the map, allowing you to quickly search for locations, valleys or mountains.
