St Anton Snow Report, 16 Mar 2010

Chalet Gerlinde, St AntonWith 240 cm at the top of Valluga and 70cm in resort, snow depths are still good. The recent heavy snowfalls have added much fresh snow to the Arlberg area. The snow on the pistes is now great for carving and the snow off the piste is fresh and powdery.

Fantastic skiing can be found all over the St Anton and the Arlberg region. Perhaps some of the best snow and conditions can be found on Rendl Mountain. The sun hits Rendl in the morning so it’s a great area to ski fresh, soft snow and make fresh tracks. In the afternoon consider skiing down to St. Christoff and Stuben. There are some great long pistes on this side of the mountain and are firm favourites as they consist of great snow and fun off piste. Take an extra layer of clothing though as it can get cold at the top

There is heavy snowfall due on Tuesday so visibility will be poor. However, it is set to brighten up on Wednesday through to Friday and sunny spells are predicted

St. Anton is always a hub of activity and its lively après ski scene never disappoints. The Mooserwirt and Krazy Kangaruh are always popular and great fun. Live music can also be found at the Underground, Picadilly or Cuba where cover artists play a set of all time classic songs.

On the 18th March in the neighboring town of Lech, a display will take place at the A-la-Carte Restaurant Kristiania, “where art marries quality”. A Michelin starred chef and artist promises a dazzling display of creativity, virtuosity and the pure joy of cooking, spiced up a bit with a pinch of irony
