In the west, where the Alps are located, there is a high mountain climate. The winters are harsh and the summers cool. The influence of the Atlantic Ocean is very noticeable in the area. In the summer it rains a lot. The winters are snowy, which makes the provinces of Tyrol and Voralberg popular winter sports areas. Towards the east, the moderating influence of the ocean decreases and the mountains become less high. The climate there takes on continental traits. Vienna, which is on the border with Slovakia, has warm summers and cold winters. In the sheltered south of Austria, Carinthia, the valleys have a pleasantly warm, almost Mediterranean climate.
