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 :-)

haha yes, Schindler won't look like that next winter, unless one sunrise hikes it, though Kapall just might.

@ulmerhutte, I never used to understand that either - the lifty stood there and on countless occasions allowed 1-2 people on when there’s a large queue building outside.

@Markymark29, as a lifty, wouldn’t you give up on it too? Is it his/her job to correct antisocial tourists?
Apart from that, let’s face it, a triple chair never was a really good idea regarding optimizing occupancy...

Snow? Wonderful! Am scheduled to start a MTB transalp in St.Anton on the 7th. Maybe I should take my skis instead!

@Steilhang, I think more likely some snowflakes around the summits rather than anything serious. Autumn seems due to arrive about beer garden closing time on Sunday evening!

The high altitude Schindlergrat & Vallugagrat stations are well under way (all foundations completed and operating equipment airlifted up) nearly all Pylons installed on whole route. They use a special Helicopter from Switzerland for pylon install.

@stanton, without the covering of snow the area around the Schindlergrat and Mattunjoch is a complete moonscape. A lot of rubble needed to create the drag lift track. A lot of snow also needed to cover all the rocks!

Just back from Arlberg late yesterday and can confirm that the new Schindlerbahn progress looks well on track, whilst only saw it from the pass below it looks really impressive.

@Steilhang, It was 25-30C last few days in Lech, warm work on the hiking and fantastic views, not particularly humid which was great at altitude, temps dropped to about 22C in the rain midday yesterday after a big storm Wednesday evening, but then 28C in Munich 7pm last night. I can't see any snow due next week coming to much, fantastic conditions for biking atm, tracks all dry and in great condition. What is your route?

Been baking hot today again today. Felt around 25deg on the way down from the Stutgarter Hut behind the Valuga? Wasn't exactly sure which lift it was in th distance.

Day 2: Ischgl - Nauders
Day 3: Nauders - Sta. Maria
Day 4: Sta. Maria - Livigno
Day 5: Livigno - Sils
Day 6: Sils - Colico / Lago di Como
Roughly 1000 - 1200m / day and around 50Km/day. Organised tour of course. Nothing too heavy and supposedly with really great trails. Will see.

If this is a serious proposal rather than bar gossip it would be a shame. I might not be able to ski the Mattunjoch run in any great style these days but it does provide a real feeling of being underway in the high mountains away from all the lifts and other paraphernalia in a relatively safe environment and with a fairly reasonable challenge. Even it all that happens is to turn it into a version of Madloch or Schindlerkar which are officially "ski routes" but are in fact pisted would not be, in my opinion, a positive development. Maybe the new lift will encourage some to try the run who would be better off not doing so, there is no way to bail out if you find it all too difficult.

Thats a shame Very Happy It sounds like a nice tour though the weather forecast for Monday is pretty poor. I think I would struggle with the amount of climbing, 60 - 70kms a day around the Bavarian Oberland I can manage but would need to put in a lot of training to get up to 1000m of climbing a day....

@munich_irish, yes it’d be a sad move, another true wild run lost to the pistenbully.

@Steilhang, fair play - that’s a tour. Quite a chew the first rise up from Konstanzerhütte towards HBH and awesome scenery with Patteriol on your left side as you go, one of my favourite rides up towards Heilbronner, beautiful place.

Am working on it! Was in Kirchberg yesterday and rode up to Ehrenbachhöhe. 1050m, went quite well. The work on the new Fleckalmbahn is quite advanced btw, the new top station will be a few meters lower than the current one. Almost all the pylons are up, with the new route running somewhat to the right and lower than the current one to protect it from the wind. The old base station is completely gone and is being replaced with something new and shiny. Will be 10 man gondolas. I suppose it's a good thing, but I will miss the old Fleckalmbahn with it's national flags...

@Markymark29, yes, I'm told this is one of the most scenic routes for a transalp. Looking forward to it. Have bad weather gear at the ready!

Also why can’t people who stay in a chalet ski? Strange.
