@JimboS, Flat is being kind. Uphill might be more accurate as you approach Madloch. Still a fun journey.

@Jefferson Darcy, I've been here three days and two have gone from Lech to St anton and back. My opinion is Lech to st anton is easier to navigate than the other way. One should be a competent intermediate to enjoy the trip. Travelling from Zürs to Lech involves a slow two seat chair and a red run that dumps you in a back street in town. Alternatively you can ski to Zug and up to the Lech side. It's a fun trip either way but not for a novice in my opinion. This is from a first time visitor mind you.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@südtirolistdeutsch, I guess that’s a question for the experts on here, but it lloks like midweek it will be 6-8C or low-mid 40’s F. I consider that warm. I consider around freezing mild, but i suppose that’s very subjective. I like below freezing so both are suboptimal to me.

@ulmerhutte, Was it just crowds problems or is the interconnect not really functional? We are coming to Lech in January and I'm hoping to be able to get to St Anton a good bit.

@staffsan, Last year in late January (29)I had to take the train down, but i was led to believe most winters by late January and through February you have a good chance of being able to ski to the valley. I’d like to try it again starting from the Italian side and ski all the way. MAybe nest year as this year it’s the Arlberg.

Mid to high thirties may melt some, but still a great start and more to come next weekend.

There are two 5 star caliber hotels, the Four Seasons and the Fairmont Chateau Whistler. There are a few properties in the village, but the better more upscale condos are on the Blackcomb side in an area called the Benchlands. I have stayed in an area called Montebelle which are small 3BR homes but you need a car there. The benchlands is largely ski-in ski-out. Lodging on the whole is more affordable than Vail or Aspen.

Thanks for the feedback. I have been leaning to Lech and this really helps. The proximity to Zurich certainly factors in. I'm hoping the new interconnect between Lech and St Anton is as functional as advertised. I've seen varying opinions here

I have secured fairly inexpensive airfare from the USA to Zurich in late January/early February. I'm deciding between Kech and Courchevel. My wife is a bit timid on skis. I ski dark blue/black in the USA and red/black in Europe. Last year we went to Verbier and Zermatt which were great for me (despite the lean snow year), but very limited for her. I realize travel time from Zurich is much less to the Arlberg, but this aside, I welcome any opinions on which best suits us. We are not much for late nights or table dancing.

For pure skiing/boarding, Sonowbird is one of the best resorts in the world, though small by Europe standards. The issue with Utah is Park Coty is a great town but the resorts in town are mediocre. Snowbird is a 45 minute drive. I do it all the time but my family hates the drive. Jackson is awesome but some years it is late January before enough snow falls to cover the rugged terrain. Aspen or Vail are good safe choices

Lift passes at Vail like all resorts here in the USA are very expensive. That said, Vail is a great family resort with a good variety of terrain. Beaver Creek is also nice, about 10 miles up the road. the bases or Vail/Breck/Beaver Creek do range from 2500-2750 meters so acclimatization can be an issue for some. Ski instruction is good. My wife took lessons at Chamonix/Verbier/Zermatt last season and her impression was that US resorts coddle students more than Europe. The USA lesson schedules seem a bit more flexible for groups, but private lessons are very expensive compared to Europe. She preferred the ski instruction in Europe, overall, except for Chamonix. I'm less of a fan of Breckenridge because, similar to parts the 4 Valles, you spend a lot of time getting from one peak to the next.

@skiandgolfnut, I'm in Zermatt now and snow was forcast all day and it only snowed early this morning. It was supposed to resume this afternoon/evening but nothing yet. You could see clouds developing late in the day but it fizzled out. The conditions are good above 2000m but they could use a good storm. I'll be in Snowbird in three weeks and hope the faucet stays on there.

@Redwine, Nothing new as of yet. I'm just an American visitor so I'm no expert, but have been following the thread here. Today Cervinia was closed. Most of the Glacier was too. High winds up at Trockener Steg. The glacier closed completely by 11. Pistes are in need of a refresh at least but decent cover above 2200. Clouds are moving in. Snow supposedly coming in the next few hours. +4 in town.

@skiandgolfnut, My first day today beautiful weather. Great snow up top. Cervinia had great conditions too to bottom. I'd say 15-20 cmon the glacier. Not to fond of 40 degree weather in the village but up top is great.

Rain at resort level in Verbier today. Snow above 1800m or so. Steady above 2000. Overall it had a Pacific Northwest feel to the day. Now on to Zermatt where it's raining.

I ski 2-3 weeks a year and it's very disappointing to finally plan to come to these mountains in Western Europe during a winter like this. You don't come here for 40 degree temps and rain in January anymore than you would go to Hawaii for 50 degree weather. It's part of the deal though in the mountains. I've had summit attempts thwarted by snow in June and August at mt rainier and Grand Teton and had to wait another year to go back. It's part of mountain weather. Still having a nice time in Verbier though. Hope things turn around for the rest of you as you go into February. The locals seem a bit down about it. Lots of anxiety about the holiday weeks coming up. Next time I'll come later in the season.

Valle Blanche today with a guide. Beautiful up top, rocky below. My guide said 3 Russians were missing from yesterday, as they descended without a guide. Helicopter out all day searching. The ridge is still without a rope.

@halfhand, I read that on the Chamonix app. Thanks. I have a guide reserved with Evolution2ski for Sunday and they have mentioned the poles and ropes are not up on the ridge. Thus they are only guiding groups of 1-2. I'll probably cancel and just go to the Grand Montets. Dissapointing coming from USA, I'll book March next time. Europe is way too dry for early season plans and I regret making them. Perhaps the itineraries at Verbier will compensate somewhat.
