St Anton Snow Report, 14 Apr 2010

Family SkiingThe upper slopes of the Arlberg, at the top of Valluga, have a depth of 240cm whilst the runs into resort still have a good skiable layer of 40cm.

The snowfall from the weekend is still present high up on the slopes and it is keeping them fresh and well pisted.

However the warm weather over the past few weeks has meant that skiing is best early on in the morning, especially high up the mountain. In the afternoon the snow conditions on the runs leading down to the village start to become soft and choppy.

There is still some great skiing to be found throughout the Arlberg region even so late in the season. Some of the best conditions can be found up the Schindler lift and up Valugga. These are some of the highest points on the mountain and therefore contain some of the best snow conditions.

Whilst here in St Anton it is well worth exploring the rest of the Alberg area covered by the lift pass. Perhaps the best skiing in the whole area is in Zurs which is the highest resort in the area meaning the snow stays fresh. There is also some great off piste to be found here.

The weather forecast for the next few days predicts descent weather conditions for skiing. There may be some snow showers on Tuesday through to Thursday however it is set to brighten with sunny spells on Friday.

On Wednesday 14th April New-Orleans-Streetband meets African-Wedding-Combo and combines to a cuban-son-formation at 9.00 pm at the Postgarage Lech.

On Friday the 16th April there is wine tasting of the Lech festival wines starting at 11am in the hotel Berghof in Lech.

In St. Anton there is the famous Mooserwirt après ski bar located on run blue 1. Here it never fails to entertain with its traditional Austrian après ski music and its quirky décor.
