March 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Across the Tirol region, several resorts have witnessed some of the best snow conditions for years and with many of the higher resorts such as Obergurgl, St Anton and Ischgl not closing until the end of April means we still have another seven weeks of the ski season to go.

Beautiful spring sunshine, top end of season events, competitive ski pass and accommodation offers, long lunches at rustic mountain restaurants – need any more reasons to go for that final ski fix?

For the latest update on skiing conditions, check out this video snow report from Skiing Austria, taken this weekend at the Stubai Glacier. Click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WC-keO1wetQ

Top 5 end of season closers

1.   The resort of Ischgl, in the Paznaun valley, is not one to close quietly and this year pop superstar Mariah Carey will perform at the legendary Top of the Mountain concert.

2.   Over in the Oetztal, Sölden will call time on the ski season 2011-12 with a fantastic mix of music, mountains, snow and skiing over several weekends in April.
