Thanks but something massively unexpected happened in work and now I'm squandering my flight out this evening as a result. May still fly tomorrow evening so interested in updates. although I feel like puking reading the above.

Hard to say how much came down. It snowed steadily all day. Maybe 10 - 15cm so far? Quite dry snow on the Galzig.

@boabski, Sorry, didn’t get to To Griabli today, our friends decided on one last run on Rendl and we were too late for the last lift. Planning to go there tomorrow so I’ll try again but I can’t be sure. Which days are you here for ?
If you like live music the Vagrants play in the Keller Bar doing very good covers of most classic rock songs and Gunner plays in Murmel apart from Saturday’s and Wednesday’s I think. The Kellar Bar has a really good vibe but that could be down to the 7.9% Bock Beer !!

Looks like it did not snow much more during the night, at least down here in Nasserein.

Certainly much colder this morning than for many days. Ski TV is showing -12C on the Trittkopf.

@Ozzyski, will be there in 5 weeks time. Always go to see Gunar and will be heading there for sure. I do like my beer from the Griabli though as some of the best days in my life have been spent in there - probably to do with the amount of Kaiser consumed 😀🍻. The bands in there recently can be hit or miss since the CCJ’s stopped (years ago) and The Snowtones (more recently)

@boabski
In Griabli this evening and spoke to the owner. The band will be playing Mondays and Wednesdays as usual. This week they have been ill so that’s why there was no live music. Gunar, I think has a Wednesday and Saturday off and is in Murmel from 5 to 8ish. The Vagrants have just posted that they only have 5 weeks left so you may miss them. Also live music in Happy Valley, Piccadilly, Fang Bar and Tom Dooley’s (late). Skiing was superb today, Hinterendl and Malfon. I’d post some pics but don’t know how.

I forgot to mention that in our first season here 8 years ago we went in to Griabli for a quick beer at around 3pm and The Snowtones were just about to start. Didn’t leave until after 7 and since then we’ve never gone skiing anywhere else.

@Markymark29,
The Vagrants play après ski in the Keller Bar from 5 to 8, just up the road from Nasserein.
Not sure what the band is called in Griabli but they’re both good.
@boabski,
Heustadl also have a good band that plays most afternoons and play outside when the weather warms up.

Not actually as quiet as a usual Saturday. Big groups of kids in ski school groups, especially on Rendl. Have parents skipped out of work early to enjoy an extra day??? 😖

Variable visibility and light snow drifting down.

Plenty busy today, busier than rest of the week. Hearing lots of Swiss voices you must be busy with that taxi@stanton, 😜.

Very cold, freezing cloud/ fog, coffee stops rammed!

That's cos today was a kids event in conjunction with Intersport and Ski School Arlberg. They do it every year at Rendl (and one in the summer too IIRC).

Got to St Anton this afternoon about 4.30pm.
Was lightly snowing on the way for the last bit and is snowing a bit in town tonight. Cold too tonight unless I’m just not used to it having been back in the UK for 2 weeks.
Having some food in Dolce Vita tonight-have been before and enjoyed it so here we are!

Presumably to maintain them in as good a condition as possible, for as long as possible.

They have been doing it for as long as I have been coming here - regardless of the snow depth.

Had my first day boarding here today so did a big tour to get a look around. St anton to flexenbahn to zurs, zug and lech and back. Was a fantastic day in the sun but don't think we'll try as big an itinerary again, it makes for too much time in lifts, queues and on inferior slopes. There is some great terrain but in many places the fresh snow from the end of the week had deteriorated . Best powder I found was under red ski route 136 from trittkopf and at top above lech. The return from flexenbahn was very busy and tricky on a snowboard.

After 37 years time to visit St.A. probably will be visiting on my own from Feb 17- Wondering where is the best budget Guest House/BB for a week stay? St Jakob

St Jakob will be cheaper than St Anton. You could also try Pettneu. Both of them are on free ski bus routes. I have never stayed in either, so cannot recommend any specific places.

Interesting “grooming” in the lower part of Steissbachtal yesterday. Looked like a series of speed bumps. Was it to deter people from using Steissbachtal? If so, it did not work.

Weather

The new week will start with a slightly föhny southerly wind, consequently sunny conditions are expected into Tuesday. Only harmless, high clouds will temporarily interfere with the weather. The temperatures will slightly increase. A weak influence of low-pressure will determine the weather on Wednesday and on Thursday. Compact, partly multi-layered clouds will reach us from North Italy and bring occasional weak snow showers. Colder air masses will settle in, which will dry off from Friday on. Sunny conditions are more frequently expected.

Yes two long flat sections, borrow a ski pole for these if you can to avoid the ignominy of having to unstrap.

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

That flat / uphill section is such a pain, especially at the end of a long tiring day and with the difficult black ahead. Could they look at putting a short drag / rope tow in to get people a bit further up towards Galzig summit so that the run home was actually downhill?

Ahhh... Madloch and Galzig are in 2 different parts of the world. Both do however involve tucks.

Madloch to Zug has a longish tuck after the first pitch from Madlochbahn unload.

Attaining Galzig, after coming off Valfagehr, involves 2 tucks with Steissbachtal closed.

One of the quietest days on piste in a while, though the number of rug rats has increased geometrically from last week.

Sorry my confusion Sad

I was thinking of the return off Valfagehr of course. If I remember it right, the second tuck (which you would avoid if Steissbachtal was open) takes you up to the point where several pistes meet. Then its a long traverse / walk / pole until you join the black 52 run down towards StA. It’s this bit that I thought could be avoided with a drag lift.

I was hoping the st Christoph lift might help us avoid the flats next time, I'll let you know if we succeed. Great day today. Morning in st Anton up to valuga. After on in stuben, highlight was the bowl on boarder's right of albonagrat chair, snow still in great condition there. Off to lech and warth tomorrow

I cannot see how you could get to the St Christophbahn from Valfagehr unload without going via the Galzig. There is a big ridge behind Arlenmähder, which I doubt you could bypass by trying to traverse along the road.

You could avoid the first tuck by taking the Schindlergratbahn.
