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 :-)

@skimastaaah, I don’t know when you were last in there but it’s no longer what it was, and service has dropped. Key staff have left and it’s not good at all, can’t wait to get you fed, paid up and out the door. Great shame.

@Markymark29, *IF* the forecast fohn and warmer weather arrives (possibly with some R**n 18th/19th Dec) as the GFS runs are showing, with a temp drop over Xmas it could well be icy .... *but* along ways off and could all change.

Thought that maybe the offpiste wouldn't be possible but the Instagram clip above doesn't look too bad

Will be taking ski touring equipment - any good sources of ski-touring info/routes around?

Couldn't find much on the internet

@kitenski, Can't see it being an issue but late snow arrival and potential temp rises like this year gets me jittery......plenty pow to come between now and 27th i'm sure. I've given up carting my 108CL's around, they never get used anyway, this year not taking them.

@Markymark29, maybe not so much of the cold. Calling the weather in a weeks time always has a chance of being wrong but the graphs and forecasts seem to be pointing to stable relatively mild southerly föhn type weather. Not full on spring sunshine but not "winter" cold either. Possibly good for outdoor Christmas lunch. Hopefully things will change.

@stanton,
I was hoping you could come up with some ski touring info.
Try to avoid skinning up the side of the piste however just in case the snow isn't good enough to ski offpiste by then - skiining routes away from the piste that meet up with mountain huts later on would be also be useful.

PS Is anywhere open to eat on the 24th Dec?

On Saturday it will be partly stormy and it is expected first in the west with gusts between 50 and 80 km / h. On the mountains, storms are expected over 100 km / h. Sometimes there will also be hurricane gusts between 120 and 140 km

@stanton, a somewhat more scientific approach than phases of the moons and cows https://www.severe-weather.eu/global-weather/motnhly-outlook-vortex-vengeance-forecast-january-mild-fa/ however it does seem as if the weather is not likely to be cold and snowy for the next few weeks. If you can make the best of the snow that is currently falling.

Very Happy Not everyone listens to terrible advice though.

It's been a great week off piste for me in St Anton so far, had a few little rock scrapes here and there but overall it's been bliss.
Unfortunately my filming skills are worse than my snowboarding skills Laughing

@stanton, Not sure St Anton itself is going to be as warm as some places. Feldkirch is currently 17 degrees, Bludenz is 16 degrees, St Anton around 4 degrees. The Föhn can rattle down the Moostal and Verwalltal but the Stanzertal itself is a bit more protected. At the moment Rendl is a couple of degrees warmer than elsewhere
