UPDATE: Snow conditions on the Turracher Höhe

For the past two weeks, the weather god has given us plenty of snow. The fallen amount of snow has been around 120 cm since the last snowfall. That’s why Turracher Höhe started the winter season early last Thursday. Currently only the Wildkopflift is in operation. The preparations are running at full speed. Here are some impressions:


Due to the heavy snowfall, tree damage resulted from overloading. Therefore, the B95 was closed by Predlitz on the Turracher Höhe last week. Meanwhile, the village Turracher Höhe is again passable in both directions (Styria / Carinthia).
