Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@franga, Short answer yes, assuming they are happy on real red runs. There have been occasional weeks when crowds have been an issue but generally no problems at all, though the Arlberg is not the quietest of ski areas so there are often queues in various places. You might want to consider taking the gondola all the way to Zürs as the link to the piste is a bashed cat track which can be a bit dull but no great stress. The most difficult "piste" would be the Madloch run down to Zug or Lech, perfectly OK for competent skiers in good conditions.

The free buses no longer run but there are reasonably regular Postbuses between St Anton and Zürs / Lech though no great reason to pay for them unless you are an early bird or want to stay late

Small clarification... the free, aka blue, buses still run between Lech and Zürs, turning around at Trittkopfbahn. Can be useful on the return from Lech, if the crowd at Ruffikopfbahn is out the door.

Don’t know if anyone has heard the news regards the huge land slip last night in the freak storm. At Schnann 100,000m3 of rock has washed down the gorge, and wiped out the B road, blocked the Rosanna and wiped out the railway line. Rosanna dug out but train line still closed, extensive damage.

Thanks very much (apologies for the delay in acknowledging your reply, have been on hols!). So we can take the gondola all the way down to Zurs? Piste map is not very clear ...

@Markymark29,

Finance has nothing to do with it..they have objected to avalanche barriers for 25yrs+ to preserve the valley's beauty.....
it has only now become a huge issue (overdone imo) with resort operator with the frequent Gleitschneelawine...

It will be snowing in Arlberg this weekend could be nearly 50cms above 2000metrs so i camnot see them doing any site inspections ...LOL ....

Nothing to do with Steissbachtal, it's over Kappall way. Not having a map in front of me, at a guess it's probably the top section near the lift as they mention a section of the red piste and the joint section of the blue and black. Adaptation including widening and flattening. Happy to be corrected.

Don’t have enough German to read the article, but 42, 43, and 44 all start at the top of Kapall. Maybe the plan is widen the start of 42 & 43? A lot of intermediates use 43 and the first 50 - 100m gets quite bumpy because it is relatively narrow.

The 3 runs cross each other further down, but I cannot readily picture what needs to be fixed at the 2 intersection points.

As @Sitter said, this work has nothing to do with Steissbachtal. They are in different parts of the world.

That was my thoughts too but cant really see what is wrong with the current set up. perhaps something to do with the ski race, though races have been successfully run on the current pistes. The planing document does not give much detail, mentioning piste widening within the current ski area. It also mentions clearing a small area of Latschen, which are dwarf alpine pine trees which I suspect is the planning issue. Not sure about Austria but assumes the same as in Germany where any sort of tree felling is a planning issue.

I assume the old Arlenburg had new owners (and a new name). The old incarnation did not seem to be all that busy, ie regularly had “zimmer frei”, even in February.
