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 :-)

Planned New Grubenalpbahn 6 man Bubble Chairift

(6er Hochgeschwindigkeits-Sesselbahn (kuppelbar) mit Abdeckhauben und Sitzheizung)


Im not sure if the Demolition Trucks have started with the old tow lift yet..or if it will even go ahead !


Meanwhile in St Anton commercial construction has resumed.

Next Season..


It is to early to foresee what the 2020/21 Ski Vacation Experience will be like ...or how the Austrian Ski Industry will handle it according to Government Rules & Guidelines.

My Guess is for pure Winter Sporters (live for the mountains) Sleep--Ski--Sleep it will be a dream .....

For others, it will more than likely be a completely different feel...(Apres Ski/Nightlife/Restaurants etc) to what you have been used to.

Lets see how the summer goes first !

Im not sure if Arlbergebahen has issued Summer safety/health measures for the lifts but
I think we can expect regulations similar to HinterTux (Face Masks on Enclosed Lifts)

https://www.hintertuxergletscher.at/uploads/tx_bh/sicherheit_berg.pdf?mod=1590581077

Here in Switzerland from June 8th there is no requirment for facemasks in Gondolas/Cable Railways etc but
there is a big argumnent for there use.

Two very rare Earthquakes in Landeck region.

Earthquakes of this magnitude have not occurred in the Tyrolean Oberland for some time. Landeck region a century event hopefully or maybe the Austrian Alps are going to experience a new regional shakeup Shocked

Saturday night, 9.45pm. An exceptionally strong earthquake with a magnitude of 4.1 shakes the Landeck area. It was felt within a radius of 50 kilometres, in large parts of the Oberland, even as far as Switzerland. A few hours later, at 2.50 a.m. on Sunday morning, there was an aftershock of magnitude 3.5, which was also noticeable, and during the night there were smaller tremors.

@stanton, I've been there and witnessed one a few years ago in summer 2103, they are pretty common based in the comments from the hotel, epicentre previously near IBK.

@Markymark29, That's a similar location to the one we felt in 2018. I think the scale was lower though. Didn't notice the one this weekend.

The only one I've felt previously was the Barnsley one about 15yrs ago, right across the Pennines. Gave my old house a right good shake Shocked

The Quakes which you refer to have all been in a well known fault in Voralberg (Klösterle, Wald am Arlberg) i have felt the ones that have occured during past winter seasons

These two quakes last weekend in the Tiroler Oberland near Landeck were an unknown fault so something maybe happening

@Sitter, @stanton, Correct, it was Kloesterle last season I think, I was there too at that time staying near the church in St Anton rather than previously in St Jakob and it was markedly more severe, perhaps Valluga will be getting a few metres taller in next few years!

Hey Folks ....

For your information .... Covid19 infections are on the rise again in Austria ... Yesterday was new 24 hour record mostly in Vienna..

You can keep an eye on the situation in the Tirol with this link.. right down to Towns/Villages

https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/d225672c788d4847b231f1283d63aead/page/page_2/

Yesterday the Austrian Government urged (again) everyone to wear Facemasks whilst indoors during the Fall & coming Winter.

Also to keep the heating low.at 22C .. not 23 or 24 C which is a virus breeding ground ..

In the Meantime chillout over Stuben Very Happy

Are you sure that's down to the current financial climate and not because of the legal implications relating to second homes?

It is a shame as it was a pleasant bar, not noisy and they sold Augustiner beer. Not sure how yet another sports shop can pay more rent but it must make sense to someone.
