St Anton Snow Report 15/03/2013
Here is the latest snow report from our team in St Anton
There is 225cm of snow at the top of the St Anton ski area with 65cm of snow in resort. The last snowfall was on 15th March with around 5cm falling.
There are 113 out of 121 of pistes open in the St Anton ski area with 100% ski lifts open.
The variable and tumultuous weather conditions will continue on. At the weekend, the bitterly cold northerly weather current will be followed by a stormy southerly weather current with spells of foehn, which will temporarily bring milder air masses. However, long sunny spells are forecast for Saturday only. So, we should use Saturday for outdoor activities! On Sunday large patches of clouds will block out the sun and hardly disperse. Starting next week, a stormy southerly foehn wind is forecast in the mountains, clouds approaching from the south will accumulate along the main Alpine ridge. On Monday night, the foehn wind will withdraw and precipitation will spread across the northern edge of the Alps. The snow line will sink distinctly below a level of 1000 meters. Tuesday promises more variable and cold rainy weather conditions.
The start of last week saw the usual warmth of the sun & blue skies we in St. Anton have all been accustomed to, however things were shaken up on the evening of 12.03.13 as we had a massive downfall of snow which made for fantastic skiing throughout the rest of the week. This is expected to be the same over the next few days & the current flat light conditions are expected to clear the way as the temperature continues to significantly drop.
17th & 18th March 2013 from 8.00AM at St. Anton Park; Rendl……
They are young, cool, extremely laid back, wear oversized clothes, and have two wide planks underfoot. It’s going to be colourful fun on the 17th March, when the freaks of the free-ski scene meet at Stanton Park on Rendl to compete in the „O’Neill Kirschbaum Battle“. Free-skiers aged 16 and over will liven up the skies with their acrobatic stunts and jumps in their quest for prize money, fame and honour. Not only a popular event in St. Anton am Arlberg for the participants – spectators also enjoy the performances from the comfort of a deck chair in the spring sunshine, with drinks and stunning views of the snow covered mountains.
