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 :-)

@kaiserchief,
Have you heard about the female Customers who are paid to sit by the window ? Very Happy

Hey Folks.....

Lift Company has a Permit to build a connection from Rendl to See (Silveretta)

More than likely will encounter same environmental objections as the Rendl Kappl

Obviously A snowHead isn't a real person
@stanton, where did you get that rumour from? It is pretty unbelievable. The link to Kappl involved building three lifts and a small number of pistes. To get to See would involve covering a large part of the northern side of the Paznauntal with lifts and pistes plus building new uplift from See. Cant see how that has any hope of getting approval or financing. My understanding is that there is a plan to link See with Serfaus, which would involve building one lift and likely no new pistes, which seems much more likely than fantasy ski areas. I thought the Arlberger Bergbahnen AG was no longer interested in links to the Paznauntal as there is little money in it for them?

After 2 glorious months, it is time to head back to Australia, enjoy autumn, and await the ski season there.

There is a suggestion on one of the forecasting sites of a bit of snow over the next week. I am a little sceptical, but it sure would be useful for those coming after us. I must confess it has been wonderful skiing in bluebird, early spring conditions, but 3+ weeks between snowfalls is too long.

Yesterday was quite a bit more crowded than the preceding days. I guess the long-weekenders had arrived.

yes. it's been a bit crowded recently. Very enjoyable sunny days and piste conditions thanks to low temps, but some fresh falls would have been welcome.
Have a good journey back to Oz.

@ulmerhutte, We are a couple of hundred kms away but it is very weird weather here too, yellow skies and the cars getting covered in sand. I would imagine the snow looks strange covered in sand. Its got really dark the street lights have come on, just like a solar eclipse, webcams from St Anton look similar, very odd

@monkbeer, around this time, pretty much every year I think. It’s not just Austria, the dust cloud will fall across the Alps ans further south.

I second that. This event has however been more intense than the average. In 20 years of skiing in St Anton, I have not seen it turn into brown mud on cars and in the streets. Perhaps it happens more often later in March, when we are gone.

It is also not that often that the groomed pistes are so stark white against the caffé latte side pistes - again maybe it happens later. That is however something we regularly see in Victoria (Aus) in spring, when the northerlies bring a load of Mallee red soil and dump it on the snow. It is usually the beginning of the end: the brown snow melts more quickly and it also turns to Velcro, making skiing decidedly unpleasant.

@Markymark29, I get that you had reasons for not going earlier, but it was a pretty good season for us. In a little over 2 months, we had only 1 rain day, and very few days of flat light. It wasn’t an epic powder season, but there were some great days. What stood out was the number of bluebird, still and cool days, finishing with 3 weeks of such days. No regrets about going, despite getting pneumonia as a chaser to covid. At least we had natural immunity to the latter, or so we hoped.

At this time of year, if you have the flexibility, it is best to leave it to the last minute, but you know that anyway.

@munich_irish, I tried not to say that but I’d say your right. I once recall pulling up for fuel at Easter near Stuttgart and the guy behind me laughing at our roof box and asking where the mountain bikes were? Great long days in the sun, freeze thaw mornings but after 11am pistes were mush. Terraces nice and full!

@munich_irish, always been skiable snow, even in the bad years, have you ever known the Arlberg to close early? Maybe it was 2015 and folk on here said take mountain bikes, and it was absolutely fine, the only area that really suffered was Warth. Happy skiing slush and then ski north facing slopes lunchtime onwards. I'd reckon it'll snow in the next 3 weeks before Easter.....

A factor in keeping the pistes good was the temps staying low right into March, -10c, cold dry air. January had the powder and changeable weather. Early January is often good with quiet pistes and good snow conditions. Not a fan of March skiing, usually slushy low down. But early March this year the temps stayed low thankfully.
I've known a metre of snow to fall in one dump at village level in late March, so there's hope yet for this season.

Hi guys after being denied two seasons due to Western Australian restrictions we are planning a big one next season. I’ve got two questions.
Does anyone know what the 22/23 season dates are ?
Is there any way around the 90/180 day Schengen restrictions without having to leave Austria ?
We have Aus and UK passports.
Thanks.

@Ozzyski, The only way around the 90 day thing is to apply for, in this case, an Austrian visa. Different countries have different requirements and types of visa. Note an Austrian visa is only valid in Austria it does not change the 90 day thing in the rest of Schengen (though in practice once you enter Schengen there are no checks on travelling around). If you dont have a visa you need to leave after 90 days and not return for the next 90. More info https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/

Hmmm… the most convenient ports of entry/exit for Australian travellers to StA are usually Zürich and Munich, in that order. Both are bound by Schengen rules. With Emirates, and perhaps some others, you can come in and depart via Wien, but that involves a 5.5 hour train trip, or an internal flight to Innsbruck. If you decide to go via Switzerland or Germany, it may pay to find out what you need to do to not fall foul of the 90/180 rule. The last thing you want is hassles on departure and perhaps issues for future trips.

I doubt next season’s dates have been finalised, but this season’s dates should give you a reasonable indication https://www.skiarlberg.at/en/Ski-Arlberg/Ski-tickets/Season-times
