Lower Austrian ski resorts set to open

The first ski regions in Lower Austria are to open their doors this weekend.

Today (Friday) the Hochkar ski region as well as the Ötscher and Jauerling regions are opening for the start of the 2012/ 2013 season.

The cold temperatures have meant snow canons have been able to be put into operation and a number of lifts have opened.

Two chair lifts were planned to open at Hochkar today with the official opening to take place on December 15th.

Lackenhof and Ötscher have also opened a couple of their lifts for snow sport enthusiasts.

On Saturday the lifts in the St Corona resort are set to open.

Jauerling is also starting its night skiing this evening (Friday) for the season.

Semmering also plans to open on Saturday for day and night skiing.

On Monday Reichenau an der Rax is to open its lifts.

However, Annaberg has had to delay its opening for a week due to a lack of snow.

In general throughout Lower Austria there is a lack of natural snow, but the cold temperatures have allowed snow making facilities to be put into operation.
