St Anton Snow Report, 30 Mar 2010

Chalet Traudl, St AntonAt the top of Valluga the snow base is a depth of 235 cm with 45cm on the local resort slopes.

The recent snowfall has freshened up the pistes since last week. There is some great skiing to be found all around the Arlberg area. The higher areas of the mountain are where the best skiing can be found. Stuben is a great place to ski as it is always quiet and there are many beautiful runs to explore.

In the morning some of the best conditions lie up Rendl as these south facing slopes catch the morning sun, however, in the afternoons they have a tendency to become slushy. Up the Rendl gondola there is the St. Anton snow park which is always kept in pristine condition. For those who are interested in pulling some tricks then this is the ideal place.

The weather forecast for Tuesday predicts sunny spells with the odd rain shower. It is one of the warmest days of the season with the temperature reaching up to 13 degrees C. There is going to be sunny spells on Wednesday and Thursday with occasional snow showers.

The Alberg area always has something for everybody. A whole new kind of “Zürs Magic” will be brought to you on Wednesday 31st March: a team of inhabitants of Lech and Zürs organizes a sporty movie night with presentation of a spectacular freeride-movie at the highest level!

In Lech the Fux wine cellar contains 45,000 bottles – the wine list of 2,900 items is one of the longest in Austria. The focus this year is on Chardonnay from Burgundy. To accompany these wines, the chef, Thomas Gruber, and his team will prepare the best seafood dishes with an exciting twist. This event happens on Thursday 1st April.
