Alpbach Resort Info

Alpbach is one of the truly classic Tyrolean ski resorts, only 45 minutes from Innsbruck. You'll find lots of charm, great scenery, friendly locals, pretty buildings and ambience by the bucketload. Accommodation is mostly hotel- or guesthouse-based, most of which are family-run and very welcoming. The more expensive accommodation is near the slopes and cheaper stuff often means a bit of a trip to get to the lifts.

Alpbach offers all the traditional off-snow activities, so skiing isn't the only attraction for visitors. There are loads of old-fashioned eateries up the mountain, but a more limited choice in the resort. Après-ski is subdued and the resort is all ready for bed by 11pm. Only 23% of visitors are British and they come for the skiing as well as ambience.

The slopes offer intermediates and beginners the best choice, making Alpbach an ideal family venue. Ski school and childcare are of a high standard. There is some powder for experts, but this relies on decent snow, something that isn't guaranteed in Alpbach. There are only 45km of pistes and it might be better to invest in the 'Kitzbueheler Alpen' Pass for greater variety (700km of pistes). You might want to give cross-country a try, as there are plenty of trails to cover. Boarders have much to amuse them, with a fun park and two half-pipes. Alpbach also features as a regular host for international events. Queues aren't a problem, so you can really enjoy the real Tyrolean experience without the scrums.

Overall, Alpbach has proven itself to be a real jewel in the crown of Austrian skiing…

Snow Overview - Austria  (snow news updated 23-Mar-2017)

It was a predominately sunny day across most of our featured Austrian resorts on Monday 20th March. The temperatures were very warm once again, and coupled with a fohn wind that is moving around the country, base depths have decreased by around 10cm since the end of last week. That said, the upper slopes in the Arlberg region are still offering some nice skiing, thanks to around 10cm of fresh snow that fell at St Anton/St Christoph (60/315cm) over the weekend. Near Obergurgl, Pitzal (171/215cm) also benefited from 11cm, and was running all 12 of its lifts on Monday. In contrast, the amount of lifts running across the Ski Juwel (30/80cm) area has dropped significantly, across Alpbach, Niederau and Wildschonau only 27/46 lifts were open on Monday. In the Ski Welt (35/45) the base depth has decreased by around 20cm from the resorts reading last Friday, and it seems that the spring weather is starting to take its toll on the snow at resorts such as Ellmau, Scheffau and Soll. For much of the week ahead, expect changeable weather and a mixture of sun, cloud, rain and even some thunderstorms for resorts such as Damuls/Mellau (90/140cm). For skiing at higher altitude, there could be up to 16cm of fresh snow on Tuesday 21st March for Hintertux (80/210cm).

European Weather Outlook

In Austria, warm temperatures coupled with a fohn wind are likely to bring a mixture of clouds and rain for first part of the coming week, and you can expect the snow to become increasingly heavy and wet as a result. Across the border into Italy, rain is also likely to dominate the forecast until the mid-week, at which point temperatures are expected to drop and some decent accumulations of fresh snow could arrive on Thursday and Friday. In France and Switzerland, there is snow forecast from tomorrow, with accumulations likely to start fairly light in France, but build to heavier showers by the later stage of the week. In the Pyranees a band of low pressure is expected to bring precipitation to resorts in Andorra. Current forecasts suggest that temperatures could be between +3 and -5C this week, which could provide a mixture of rain and snow based on altitude. The outlook is similar for our featured Spanish resorts that sit within the Pyranees. For Sierra Nevada near Granada, sun and cloud is likely until Thursday 21st, and from then cloudy skies and snow are forecast. Looking to Scandinavia, the first part of the week in Norway is likely to bring clouds and small amounts of snow. From midweek a spell of high pressure could move in, which will bring some lovely sunny skies. Over in Sweden, Are is likely to be snowy this week, with 15cm predicted by Friday 24th, while in Salen the weather should be fairly sunny from Thursday onwards. In Scotland, it is currently very windy at present with heavy snow falling in the west. Snow is expected to continue until Wednesday, and the hope will be that enough will fall to reopen some runs at resorts such as The Lecht and Glenshee.
