Bright sunshine is forecast for some hours. Starting next week, the next low-pressure area over Northern Italy will reach us. Strong clouds will approach from the south and result in snowfalls.
St. Anton am Arlberg is reporting “Fresh snowfall” with 6cm new snow forecast in the next 48 hours. We have experienced minus temperatures at resort level however this is set to get warmer during this week to around -2′C with 4 centimeters of snow due today with a further 2 centimeters due tomorrow. Blue skies & sun are expected Sunday & Monday so this should create perfect conditions for skiing not only from visibility but also temperature, taking full advantage of last weeks heavy snow fall.
