23/03/16

The pistes are in good, well-groomed conditions with fresh snow arriving today so skiing is still good even with the freeze-thaw conditions. Friday looks set to be a good day for skiing as it will be drier and brighter but Sunday looks like it will be a very good day as the fresh snow from Friday night / Saturday will be followed by brilliant sunshine Sunday morning (get out skiing before the next lot of snow). As the sun is getting stronger now don’t forget to use the sunscreen!

Snow depth: 75cm in resort, 215cm at summit
Lift status: 94 out of 97 lifts open

Forecast: Heavy snow forecast today with the majority this afternoon / evening, following into tomorrow morning. A mainly cloudy week with light snow showers, heavier snow on Friday night / Saturday morning. Sunday looks set to see a sunny day with heavier snow expected again on Sunday and into Monday morning.

It’s been a bumper week of snow across the Alps, with the huge snowfall in the French Alps getting the majority of the headlines. However, in Austria, the Arlberg ski area has also profited from the latest dump down.

The Arlberg region has benefited more than any other Austrian ski area, with 25cm fresh snow falling in the last few days, lifting the snow base on the upper slopes to 100cm.

There’s been plenty of powder to find, as Flagship Chalet Manager Heather demonstrates as she battles her way through thigh deep powder:

There’s plenty of snow forecast for the rest of the week, with steady snow on the cards for the next few days. Going into next week, temperatures are expected to drop a little by early next week, when the big snow is due to fall. Monday and Tuesday are set to be when the big snow arrives, with over half a meter forecast across the two days.

Chalet Manager Maciek had an amazing view on his way down piste 17 this week, admiring the snow capped mountains as he rode the powder on the piste.

St Anton are reporting an extra 20cm fresh snow to the snow base since New Year’s day.  The snow forecast was correct, as the snow dumped down on the western areas of the Austrian Alps giving us a 20+cm snowfall in certain areas across the resort. 

Weather to Ski reported this morning 25cm of fresh snow in the Arlberg region. Add a bluebird day today to make the most of the fresh snow conditions, getting up the slopes early was paramount for getting the best of the conditions and the fresh lines.

The edges of the piste provide nice powdery conditions to play around in. Floating down a powdery piste beats digging in the edges into hard packed pistes any day.

Of course, even if you are just messing around in the powder on the side of the piste, make sure you follow the basic rules to staying safe off piste.

Forecasts are showing there’s plenty of snow heading towards St Anon and the Arlberg region. We powder are predicting 45cm more in the next six days.

The best news from the resort is that R1, the home run back to St Anton, is now open. It is in glorious condition and is a great way to end a day’s skiing.

Stats: Runs open- 143km on 63 open pistes across the Arlberg region Lifts open- 74 of 97  operational lifts Snow base- 15cm in the resort, with 75cm at the summit To visit St Anton, give one of our Travel Consultants a call on 0203 603 3555 or visit scottdunn.com 


 1/1/16   A few centimeters of fresh snow to start off the New Year in St Anton. Based on the forecasts the start of a bumper week of snowfall for the Tirol region.  The significant snowfall that has been forecast will do wonders to the slightly icy conditions most European ski resorts have been facing after this prolonged period of sunshine and warm temperatures. Weather to Ski name check neighboring Lech as one of the Austrian resorts that is most likely to benefit from the storm currently rolling its way towards the Alps. J2Ski are reporting that 49cm are set to fall in the next week, with a possible 71cm the week after. Snow Forecast have predicted the below for the rest of the week at 2000m Forecasts are changing rapidly, but almost all are saying that the snow will be hitting the Arlberg region, giving us plenty of reasons to feel positive about the snow conditions in the coming days and for the rest of the season.

30/12/15 The national media may be painting a picture of doom and gloom about a lack of snow across the Alps, particularly in Austria and Germany. However, things aren’t as bleak as they may seem.  St Anton and the Arlberg region is currently boasting near 150km of open pistes throughout the area and, while conditions may not be the glorious powder sometimes associated with the time of year, there is plenty of skiable terrain. Daniel, Scott Dunn Driver and Reporter in St Anton, has sent in some shots of the sunny slopes from yesterday.

The best skiing is, unsurprisingly, to be found on the higher slopes. Between St Christoph at 1800m and Schindler at 2660m, the conditions are probably the best in the region. Conditions can get a little icy, but there tends to be a nice layer of soft snow on most of the pistes.

Here comes the snow: Every forecast out there seems to be predicting slightly different timings as to when the snow will arrive. The only thing they seem to agree on… It is coming. Snow Forecast are predicting a 5cm top up on New Year’s Eve and a bigger snow fall due on Saturday and Sunday. J2Ski are reporting similarly, but the bigger snow fall arriving on Monday. The drop in the temperature and freezing levels will allow the pisteurs and snow makers to make improvements to the pistes. No matter how much snow falls, the additional snow making will undoubtedly improve the piste conditions. Stats: Runs open- 144km on 63 open pistes across the Arlberg region Lifts open- 74 of 97  operational lifts. Snow base- 15cm in the resort, with 55cm at the summit Forecast- The forecasts are looking positive for more snow heading into the New Year, with temperatures dropping and a storm moving in the direction of the Alps.

26/12/15 Merry Christmas from St Anton. The Arlberg region, like much of the Alps, hasn’t been overly blessed with an abundance of snow, but there is still plenty of skiing to be had.  144km of pistes open in December is still fantastic, given the lack of natural snow fall. The piste grooming team have worked hard to make the slopes that are open in good condition and open up new slopes throughout the last few weeks.

Another 13 lifts have open since the last snow report, meaning 63 pistes are now open across the entire Arlberg region. The St Anton Twitter page tweeted this amazing photo to give everyone the St Anton envy.

With snowfall forecast for New Years Eve and long term predictions showing up to 15cm of snow over the first week of January, the conditions in January look set to be on the up.

Piste du Jour- Blue 8

From the Galzig, you have to take Blue 8 to St Christoph. It is currently boasting the best conditions in resort, with a nice layer of soft snow on top of the well groomed base. It also leads to the Hospiz Alm, an excellent mountain restaurant that has the unique feature of a spiral slide down to the bathroom. Anything to not clunk down the stairs in those massive ski boots!

Stats:

Runs open- 144km on 63 open pistes across the Arlberg region

Lifts open- 71 of 97  operational lifts.

Snow base- 15cm in the resort, with 60cm at the summit

The Scott Dunn team in St Anton took to the slopes on Friday 11th December and had a fantastic day on the pistes.

Piste des Tages- Blue 17
