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 16-Jan-2017)

Thursday 12th January was a day of mainly cloud across Austria with some sun and snow showers at times too. Fresh snow fell overnight at many resorts, filling in some of the off piste tracks and leaving some excellent skiing to be had. In contrast to December, it is now proving somewhat difficult to pick out a standout resort. However, the Ski Juwel resorts of Alpbach (70/110cm), Niederau (70/110cm) and Wildschonau (70/110cm) are looking particularly good following around 10cm of fresh overnight, and there are currently a good variety of pistes open for all abilities to enjoy. In The Arlberg region, there was fresh tracks to be had at St Anton (35/115cm) and St Christoph (35/115cm), where 18/23 lifts were running and the temperature remained cold at around -2C. Finally, At Silvretta Montafron (45/122cm) it was a perfect morning to head up high and enjoy a cloud inversion and 7cm of fresh snow. Whilst snow continued to fall on Thursday, It is Friday 13th January that may well be the day to really look out for. Current forecasts are predicting heavy snowfall for many regions, with the Gastein resorts in particular expected to receive around 30cm. Furthermore, the present front is not expected to lessen its stranglehold for some time, with snow showers likely to continue well into next week.

European Weather Outlook

Winter has arrived, better late than never apparently. The past few days has seen excellent snow fall, particularly in Austria, now its France, Italy and Switzerland’s turn. Coming up is a change in the direction of the flow of cold air. This change will, over the next 72 hours finally bring sizeable snow falls to resorts around The Matterhorn and Mont Blanc Massif. Strong winds are prevailing in some areas of the European Alps today. These winds will likely stay moderate to strong during the storm, this will mean uneven distribution of snow throughout the entire south western Alps range. In the east Italian resorts in the Sella Ronda will also see just under half a metre of new snow arrive. For the worried masses traveling to the Alps, fret no more. Over the weekend and into next week at time the visibility will be poor but the skiing will be fantastic. The good news doesn’t stop for resorts in Germany either. The forecast is for more heavy snowfalls over the next three days. This week’s snowfalls should bed down a snow base to last the rest of the season, even the off piste areas will start becoming an option. In Austria, briefly speaking the tap will stay on for the next three days with moderate to heavy snowfalls expected to continue. Beyond 72 hours the storm will slow down but conditions will stay cloudy with light snow. The Pyrenees are getting some excellent snow fall currently, this will continue into the weekend. A great time to be skiing in the area.
