St Anton snow report 18.12.2012

Here is the latest snow report from our team in St Anton

There is 136 cm at the top of the St Anton ski area with 80cm in resort too. It has been snowing today and we have already had 3cm with another 21cm expected!

There is a lot of snow forecast for today, with 21cm falling on the mountain, but Wednesday and Thursday are the brightest day of the week. Wednesday is expected to be clear skies, and Thursday the sun will pop its head out between the occasional sprinklings of snow.

St Anton currently has 42 slopes open and 25 lifts open.

The ski conditions for this week are set to be fantastic. With 21cm of snow expected today, there will be plenty of powder and beautiful sweeping blankets of snow across the whole resort. What’s more is that tomorrow (Wednesday) is forecast to be a ‘blue bird’ day! Make sure your camera is charged and everyone is looking their best for some postcard perfect photo opportunities. Great for making those at home green with envy while you are rosy cheeked from the mountain air. There is more snow forecast from Thursday onwards, in fact for the rest of the week it’s snowing every day providing more untouched snow for you to carve up every morning. Despite all this snow you are still benefiting from fairly warm temperatures, with the average low being around -9 degrees, and highs of -5 degrees on the mountain top. Make sure you take layers, and protect your face from the snow to ensure you make the most of these great conditions.

St Anton is certainly livening up! With the first arrivals of guests the town center has a new burst of energy, both day and night. This Thursday is also the first night of the Toboggan and live music night which will be happening every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the season. Enjoy your evening by taking the 4km toboggan ride through a forest, down a 1, 670 foot elevation, to be greeted by some great live music and an inviting gluehwein. Make sure you wear snow boots and your salopettes for the tobogganing, the only way to break is to dig your feet into the snow, and without the right footwear you are bound to get very cold and wet toes!
