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 :-)

@munich_irish, Cool?
Coming weekend is supposed to be sunny and temperatures up to 10C in valley...
Snowcover is very thin...
Still too early to tell! (But artificial shouldbe ok, given the expected freezing during the nights)

@Langerzug, your fellow country folk over at wepowder suggest a maximum of 4 - 5 degrees for Zürs over the next 6 days, which seems cool to me. There does not appear to be any mild and damp weather in sight but the weather forecast is liable to change more quickly than the Austrian government's Covid rules Very Happy

This site: https://www.meteoblue.com/en/weather/14-days/saint-anton_austria_2766757 suggests somewhat cooler than 10C at the weekend, but regardless, too early to fret. It is only mid-Nov. Anybody with any significant history of skiing will know that snow this early looks good, feels good, but ultimately means little.

IMHO, a significant difference between Benni and Jacob is the position of their arms, Benni arms are held horizontal forward of the body. Jacob drops his each time to his side momentarily after a turn whereas Benni maintains them forward with quicker and more positive pole planting. Jacob's pole planting is more tentative later it is more positive and the turn symmetry is improved. Just an observation.

The Neighbours open up this weekend 20th November (Not the the Ski Lifts)

Lets see what happens ..

"""Der Chef des in der Corona-Pandemie auch international bekannt gewordenen Ischgler Aprés-Ski-Lokals "Kitzloch" hat sich für den unbedingten Erhalt der "Kultureinrichtung" Aprés-Ski ausgesprochen. Aprés-Ski sei nämlich so "wichtig wie der Opernball" und müsse auch in Corona-Zeiten dringend im Angebot der alpinen Wintersport-Hotspots bleiben. Als wesentlichen Beitrag zu diesem Erhalt sieht Bernhard Zangerl etwa strenge 2G-Einlasskontrollen, wie er im APA-Gespräch sagte.""""

Just had confirmation from Sunweb that my trip to St Anton on the 12th Dec has been cancelled. I was going to reschedule for Christmas week instead but I'm not confident things will be normal at the time so probably look to go to Italy or France instead. Crying or Very sad

Is there anyone on the ground (not the usual bluffer) there who can give a finger in the air assessment realistically of what may happen. Whats the word on the street re. hotel bookings etc. Wanted to pull the trigger for Jan/Feb but have no confidence the way things are going. Especially with Vaccination rates so low in Austria.

@mcg, no one can tell with you any confidence whatsoever, the snow forecast is likely to be more accurate Very Happy . Plenty who will say "its all doom & gloom" and no ski season again this year, others who think it will all kick off again come mid December. Afraid there is nothing else to do but wait. Endless discussion of all this on the general Austria thread. One slight ray of light in that it has been announced that ski lifts & areas can open as normal (with 2G etc) though no hotels etc until at least 13th December. How many areas will actually open for what will be a limited number is uncertain.

FYI, for those who use Linie 2 or 4 ski buses: they will no longer stop at Nassereinbahn. The nearest stops are Terminal Ost and Hotel Reselehof.

The Zürs/Lech bus (#92) will depart/arrive at the StA Bahnhof. It appears it will not enter Terninal West. The Zürs Postamt and Lech Rüfiplatz stops are only serviced in the evening.

@ulmerhutte, Makes sense re Nassereinbahn, Ost is only 100m away and turning into the narrow street must have been a pain for drivers to get the the Bahn, and dangerous for those walking in the road.

@Markymark29, Pluses and minuses for us. On one hand, we usually skate across to N’Bahn from the back of the Arlenburg. The potential plus is that queues on N’Bahn might be smaller at lift open. I am also fairly sure the bus drivers did not enjoy the pedestrians and garbage trucks, with no situational awareness, in that section between the barrier gate and N’Bahn.

On the minus side, we sometimes ride Linie 4 and make the call at N’Bahn whether to get off, depending on the queue, or go around to Rendlbahn or Gampenbahn. At the end of the ski day, it was nice to time it so that you were coming down the N’Bahn stairs just as the bus was pulling in.

Bottom line: getting there in 2022 is all that matters. These changes are not that big of a deal in the scheme of things.

It is possible to ski powder on a straight, skinny ski? Who knew? And, no helmets? What were they thinking? Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

PS: enjoyed that video clip. A feel-good way to start the day.

We are booked to fly on 2 Jan, arriving the day after. I don’t care about apres, though I feel for the business owners. Three interrupted seasons. As long as the lifts are running, and there are places to eat lunch, we will be happy. In fact, if we need to learn to use AT gear, that will fine too…

New Hardline Chancelor yesterday replaced the last one who only lasted appx 50 days :- Happy So it's all a bit messy in Vienna ...

Govenment decision on reopening for Tourism (Hotel/Gastomony) on Dec 13th put back until after a meeting next week (December 8th ) which also so happens to be a National Holiday in Austria

Association of Hotels & Gastro Trade furious because it will leave little time to get up and running for the 13th ...There is also a massive shortage of staff..so likely many establishments will remain closed this season ...

It could happen or could not ... Very Happy Very Happy

German day trippers ""may"" now have another hurdle (testing) when they return home..

Although you wouldn't think it from what I see in Ischgl this morning Very Happy Very Happy
