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 :-)

@Markymark29, have spent whole days doing nothing else but go up and down Schindler! Love it, particularly the runs past the end of the top station, right in picture, on the left as the chair (used to) come over the ridge... but since the advent of fat skis and snowboards everyone else has the same idea Sad

@Steilhang, Hopefully it may be quieter now on, if most stay on the gondola.....wonder if they'll remove the orange netting on the first one, that entry is a bit sketchy. Laughing

Yup. Have watched people trying all sorts of approaches to get over that netting and decided that was not for me. As one famous movie cop said, “A good man knows his limitations...”.

Whatever happens with the orange netting, is it still going to be possible to get round the building, where before, once you get over the netting you then step up to go under the side of the building to get to the front of Schindler directly under the chair?

At the 0.29s mark on that youtube video doesn't look promising or are there stairs and maybe a new easier way?

Gonna miss waving to random buddies coming up the chair just before dropping into the couloirs plus I'm sure the Scandinavians are going to miss jumping off the chair just before it reaches the top Laughing Laughing

@Windskisurf, have not done it for some time, but last time I did it there was no netting, just a small fence that you climbed over and walked along the side of the building... But like I say, last time was a while ago, maybe 18 years or so

@kitenski, It's snow volume dependent and also they want to let the snow build up prior to opening at Stuben and Rendl hence they are always last, Gampen and Galzig first. Its normal for Rendl to open just before Christmas and Stuben week before. They need more snow for Rendl and Stuben and they dont have many punters pre-Christmas so concentrate on the main Galzig/ Gampen area first. I'd say if you are wanting to go to stay in Stuben much before Christmas you'd have to accept the potential for bussing to Anton or St C, or get your skins out.

@Markymark29, I understand that but they also will have a published plan as all other ski resorts do so that staff know when they are due into work, hotels and bars know when to start to plan openings etc etc!

This, for example, is Trois Vallees, I am simply trying to find the same for the Arlberg.

@kitenski, the Arlberg has always seemed to be slow in opening the various lifts even when there is plenty of snow. The first week is very much reduced price tickets on the basis that the place is only really partially open. Even after that the tickets are slightly reduced because there is no guarantee the whole place will be open. The lift company do seem to like to have a "flexible" approach to opening. As said elsewhere Ischgl is much more reliable early season however it is always easy to get somewhere to stay at that time so no issue at all just turning up at the resort with the best snow and most lifts open.

PS dont take any notice of Stanton Very Happy

@kitenski, You'll find plenty of accommodation availability that week, i'd just turn up and see where the best snow is, i'd suggest heading to Anton if youre wanting to stay in resort and skiing Galzig/ Schindler. Grassy slopes will be hopefully open and best area free of sharks early on. Alternatively stay in Lech. You'll not find the level of detail you're after regards phased openings - how do they know, its snow dependent? Like I said somewhere above they open it in a phased cycle to hold snow back for Christmas/ New Year crowds, and in my experience Rendl and Albona are later to open than Galzig/ Gampen/ St C. If you are looking to be totally flexible consider staying in Klosterle and use the buses, or drive up daily to Rauz or Zurs, both free parking - it'll be quiet everywhere.

@Maersk, single lift up? Don't think so.
Short answer is yes, St. Anton is great in March.

You are looking at a map of St Anton am Arlberg?

Why would you think that there would be only a single lift up and no ski back?

Early to mid-March often has the maximum snow depths for the season. Sure, there are more freeze-thaw days, and fewer powder days, compared to January to mid-February, but you get more sunny days. All good.
