Very little open again today. All inter resort links closed. They opened some of the higher lifts but have now closed them again presumably due to increasing wind. Morning was great but now it's getting warmer and snow on the very few open lower runs is turning to tracked out heavy sh*t. Hope for a refresh tonight.

With the Steissbachtal closed, is it possible to get from Kapall/Gampen to Galzig without going to resort level? Is the very bottom of piste 28 open to enable me to get to the bottom of the Zammermoosbahn lift? Yes

@FIRSTOFTHEGIANTS, do you mean 06Z? Yes it's looking very tasty for the north and west. Hope there are a few moments of calm amidst the maelstrom for those involved to enjoy whatever is delivered.

@Idris, where is that - Honshu? For how long was it raining and how much has it ruined the snow? Is more snow forecast to repair the damage?

Zürich then stress free rail transfer to a multitude of Swiss or west Austrian resorts. So much more civilised than the weekly cattle run to the French ski factories.

GFS 06Z is showing a decent amount of snow Tuesday-Wednesday in the Arlberg, more than other forecasts. Is GFS not sufficiently high resolution to reduce predicted snowfall amounts for the northern alps from weather systems approaching from the south? http://www.wetterzentrale.de/en/show_diagrams.php?geoid=2547&model=gfs&var=93&run=06&lid=OP&bw=

@nozawaonsen, any more thoughts on the forecast further out? There seems to be discrepancy between ECMWF and GFS, with the former being a good boy and favouring further Atlantic weather systems coming in from the W/NW, or have I interpreted that completely wrong?
You know it makes sense.

@boarder2020, there are some very nice runs down to the revelation gondola. The far left from the top had some of my favourite runs in the trees and staying over there takes you down to revelation eventually, instead of bailing out right earlier to stoke chair. The uplift is fast and it's nice to warm up again inside the gondola if it's cold and dumping.

Revelstoke is amazing...fast uplift, huuuuge vertical, amazing views from the top, loads of snow and fab off piste both above and below the treeline. Very remote which is great once you're there. I would love to go back.

Took me three days to get into St Anton once. Inghams were a bit slow with information, but arranged very nice hotel accommodation in Feldkirch. No complaints. Can you recall if the trains were running ok through St Anton?

@LeglesWonder, sports bag. If you were trying to book skis on as a normal hold bag then you reap what you sow. Although there are so few checks at their auto check in desks now then I wouldn't be surprised if you got away with it.

@hd, it's rarely a problem in Austria. Valley level resorts mean no winding up/down access roads. This and many previous French snowmaggedons have involved queues all the way back along the multi lane highway many many kms from the access roads. I am trying to think of an analogous situation in Austria - like queues down to Innsbruck for tourists getting to the high altitude resorts such as Ischgl, Obergurgl etc? It just never seems to happen.

Is this snowmaggedon malarkey exclusively a French problem?No, surely it's whenever a lot of snow coincides with a lot of traffic on the road? This weekend the weather is coming in from the north west, so the northern French Alps are getting hit harder than most on probably the busiest transfer day of the season. The (in)famous Birthday Bash of a few years ago had thousands of people stranded in the Italian Dolomites as that area got hit by the snowmageddon. It does seem that the Tarentaise region is particularly prone.

@LeglesWonder, I have always put all my non snow related luggage in my snowboard bag when flying with easyjet without paying for an additional hold bag and I've never been pulled up. It's even easier now at Gatwick as their check in desks are all automated, so no staff to open your bag, once you're past the sole rep at the entrance to the check in area whose only job is to verify your boarding pass and passport then direct you to an available check in desk.

@nozawaonsen, right, but im going week 4 and 5, so mainly wondering wether the base layer at lower altitude will disappear? That is a ridiculously long time away to be speculating about snow conditions. Maybe any incoming rain will affect snow quality on the lower slopes. Maybe it will snow again at low altitude before you arrive.

I'm looking for an apartment for a January week in St Anton and have found a reasonably priced place in Stadle. How well located is Stadle for town centre access, particularly later night après? Looks like it's about 1.5km to the west of town so should be walkable but are there any crazy steep hills or other obstacles?

En route back to Blighty from a fantastic 3 days in Engelberg. What a start to the season! Snowed all day Saturday above 1500m, but visibility was poor and one of our trio fell badly dislocating his right shoulder, which has potentially ended his winter on the first day...sh*t. Sunday was very busy but lots of fresh tracks mainly to the right of the Jochpass chair, and intermittent sometimes heavy snow which continued through the evening down to town. Monday was amazing! Bluebird cold empty slopes and a total of 45cm new at the top from the weekend dump. Steinberg rocked! Lapped many times with shin-knee deep fresh tracks on each run. Had a look at the top of a virgin Galtiberg which was so tempting...but potentially very risky for avalanches in the lee of a strong wind plus the new snow. We decided against then checked with the lifty at the adjacent drag who advised in no uncertain terms that it was not at all feasible due to insufficient snow on the rocky lower section so with hindsight relieved we didn't go. Finished the day instead playing in the trees next to the valley run very nice :D Fab conditions with full nearly shark free coverage from 3000m down to 1000m...in November! Pics to follow.

Rained all day in Engelberg and dumped above 1500m albeit quite heavy/wet snow. Much colder now though as forecast and big flakes coming down into town nicely. Mañana mañana :sH:

There is a direct public bus service. Takes a while as it stops everywhere but a very pleasant scenic route, cheap and plenty of space for luggage in the boot. I think oebb.at has the details.
