This is a positive sign in terms of how conditions during the early season will pan out in general. It is good news for the glaciers to, especially the eastern ones such as Hintertux, Mölltal, Pitztal, Sölden and Passo Stelvio, all of which should present excellent skiing conditions once skies clear.
