St Anton Snow Report 26/02/2013
Here is the latest snow report from our team in St Anton
There is 236cm of snow at the top of the St Anton ski area with 80cm in resort. The last snowfall was on Friday when 5cm of fresh snow fell.
There are 118 pistes open in the St Anton ski area with all 79 ski lifts open too.
Clear night skies bring with them a chilly start to the next few days, however as the sun rises above the mountain tops, temperatures will increase. From around -7 degrees on Tuesday morning to -1 on Thursday there is expected to be very little wind in the area which means no wind chill on the slopes. The bright sunny days are expected to last until Thursday when they will be replaced by a light sprinkle of snowfall.
After a dusting of snow on Sunday evening the St Anton slopes are in luxurious condition and are set to remain this way for the coming week. The suns rays are reflecting of the glistening slopes adding to the excellent visibility. Ski goggles are no longer a necessity and more sun glasses are starting to appear. Furthermore, with half term having been and gone the slopes are quieter this week meaning no queuing for lifts and much more ski time.
There are all sorts of options to keep you entertained when not on the slopes ranging from a trip on the toboggan run, a relaxing swim in the wellness centre or an adrenalin fueled climb on the ice wall at the Arl-Rock climbing centre. On Wednesday night the weekly ski show returns with the instructors demonstrating how skiing should be done. For any culture vultures there is an opportunity to immerse yourselves in the history of St Anton at the museum which is open daily.
