@gortonator, Bring on the corn snow! I can already taste the schnapps. Thanks for the update. Happy skiing.

Sounds like some big snow up high. Mild temps forecasted for weekend and next week (though below freezing at night). What are chances they'll be a decent snowpack when I arrive on Wednesday next week?

@Jellybeans1000, So this means it will dump next week, right?! Also, how's the apres-ski forecast looking? All inane jesting aside, thanks for the intel and insights -- very helpful!

Yes, Alberg forecast for next week (when I'm there) went from big snow to sun and some rain. Chances that could swing back toward snow, at least by the end of next week?
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@gortonator, hahah, yes, especially with the season we've been having out west. But my father in Austrian and I love skiing over there. Convinced a bunch of friends to join us who had never skied in Europe. They were a bit shocked by the conditions in town (brown with only strips of snow), but up high was decent and the sun was brilliant. And, well, the apres-ski and gemütlich atmosphere in Austria can't be topped. Can't wait to be back next week. Will go high for snow. Enjoy that beer(s) and the fresh tracks tomorrow!

@gortonator, thanks for the report and words of encouragement! I'm sitting in my office here in New York obsessing over the weather. Forecasts I read were predicting 20+ inches of snow for the Arlberg, so to wake up this morning to see rain on the web cams was a disappointment. Glad to hear it snowed up high. Hoping tonight delivers. I'm there in less than a week -- second visit of the season after a fun but disappointing (snow wise) New Years.
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

How is it looking. Looks like rain in town but snow above 2000m? Decent amount? We need some reports and everyone is at apres-ski!

I can't believe I am doing this dance again. Came over from the States in late December -- no snow! It dumped in January just after I left. Now I'm headed back for a second trip and we're doing the snow dance again. Let's hope it snows.

@JohnMo, @Redwine, Thank you, both! I was in St. Anton for New Years and just missed the snow. I'd like to get back over to the Alps for another go this winter.
You know it makes sense.

Haven't been to Zermatt since the 80s when I was all of seven years old. Currently there are some cheap flights out of NYC to Milan. Can anyone recommend a shuttle service between Malpensa Airport and Zermatt? Thinking about a quick trip in mid March. Thanks!

@rob@rar, Yes, of course there are strong elements of tourism throughout the Alps. I'm merely pointing out that they feel more organic than a what you often find here in the States. I prefer but not knocking American skiing. To each his own.

@Posidrive, Totally agree with you and I'm an American (albeit one with an Austrian father). I've skied some of the best snow of my life in Colorado and Utah, and I love the small resorts of the East Coast where I live, but nothing compares to skiing in the Alps, particularly Austria, Switzerland and Italy. It's the sense of tradition, the real villages that weren't manufactured for ski tourism, the food and the mountains. Skiing out west in America might give you deeper snow and higher elevations, but the mountains are far less dramatic and most of the resorts feel too corporate. It's the Disney version of skiing.

@gores95, Glad to see more people from the US going over. You're going to love it. I'm located in NYC -- was just there for New Year's and planning to go back in Feb or March. Looks like you'll have good snow. The good thing about tickets there is that they're cheap compared to the US. Our tickets were 53 euros per day (compared to the $175 we paid at Vail last Christmas that's a steal). I'd just ski every day. If you're feeling tired just do a leisurely day on the slopes and a long lunch with plenty of wine at the Hospiz Alm. Also make sure to take the new Flexenbahn lift over into Zurs so that you can ski both Zurs and Lech. Truly impressive and a much different vibe than St. Anton. Have a blast!
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@neslot, I wouldn't let it worry you. I did the same thing over Christmas. We booked a trip to The Arlberg for 12/26 - 1/2. I was taking American friends who'd I'd convinced to ski in Austria after talking it up for years. But instead of fresh powder we got the driest December that region had seen in 25+ years. I worried my head off, practically ruined the Holidays (my wife was furious!) in the run up to our departure and you know what? It was all for not. No, we didn't get snow (that happened the day after we left), but we had a fantastic time. Sun, nice artificial pistes, good food, great apres and endless views of the Alps that sure beat the hell out of my drab office view in NYC. I'll pray for snow for you, but you'll have a blast regardless. Enjoy!!

@Cubanpete, I was in the Arlberg last week and Lech was barren aside from some man-made pistes (sheet of ice and strewn with stones). Zurs was a bit better on the north side and St. Anton was best, albeit all man-made. Sounds like they've received 50cm in town and 80cm up top in the past few days. Skiing should be much better but they'll need a few more weeks of steady snow to open everything off-piste. Still, it's the Arlberg, just go!

I skied with locals while there and they said it'll need a good month with multiple storms for all the off-piste to open. Still, this is significantly better news that what we've experienced for the past 6+ weeks. Also, the table dancing at the KK is quite precarious under new snow. Safety first, everyone.

Just got back from a week in the Arlberg. Icy pistes and not much snow, but great weather, food and apres so I can't complain. Love it there. Looks like all that is due to change today and this weekend. Already contemplating a return in February or March. To all those Snowheads currently there or about to head -- enjoy!

Watching the live cams from here in the U.S. Looks like the weather is moving in, but warm in the valley. Hoping this yields a Christmas miracle dump.

@stanton, Yes, very good point. I was there once in April 2006 (was teaching in St. Moritz for season) -- it was raining in the valley, so we hit apres-ski early. When he woke up the next morning there was a good bit of snow, but up high there was close to a meter. Had some amazing runs off the front of the Schindler Spitze. That said, it was after a full season and there was a solid base. Not this time. Still, I'd welcome what a fresh dump would do for the pistes and the aesthetics. A snowy Arlberg always looks better than a brown Arlberg!

Can we all focus our energies on shifting this Stau west so that the Arlberg hits the jackpot? http://wepowder.com/forum/topic/235569 My dad keeps stoking my hopes. He's Austrian and made his staatlicher in St. Christoph back in the 60s. Keeps telling me tales of how freak weather can move in there and dump. If only...

WePowder is still talking about a Stau hitting north eastern Austria (40+ cm). Wish that would move west. My mother-in-law is a big windbag so I'll see what she can do. And on another note for those on Instagram this is good for a laugh -- great old photos and funny captions: https://www.instagram.com/theapresski/
