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 30-Jan-2015)

Austria has enjoyed a week full of fresh snowfall with all of our featured resorts reporting powdery conditions and increases in overall base depths. It continued to snow on Thursday 29th January with cold temperatures, just in time for the approaching weekend. The Ski Welt region, including Soll (60/80cm), Westendorf (60/80cm), Ellmau (60/80cm), Hopfgarten (60/80cm) and Scheffau (60/80cm), enjoyed fresh snow throughout the week and more snow fell on Thursday with up to 10cm reported in the morning. The Amade region, including resorts such as Bad Gastein (125/240cm), Bad Hofgastein (25/95cm), Flachau (80/190cm) and Wagrain (50/115cm) have all seen fresh snow this week with up 20cm being reported on Wednesday and it continued to drop on Thursday too. Overall temperatures remain below freezing, keeping the pistes in an excellent state and there is plenty of fresh powder off the piste. There’s more cloud and snow just around the corner as the weekend approaches. It’s going to be quite a cold one too so wrap up warm and consider taking a low light lens if possible.

European Weather Outlook

The current snowstorm could prove to be the season-changer, especially as the snow is not forecast to cease until Sunday night. By then over a metre of fresh snow is possible across a wide area of the northern and western Alps, with the heaviest falls around the French/Swiss border. Further east in Austria, between 20 and 40cm can be expected, with some favoured spots potentially seeing more. Current forecasts are pointing towards a brighter day on Monday, so this could be the best bet for some clear overhead conditions as yet more snow is predicted from Tuesday onwards. Again be careful to check the latest avalanche bulletins as the snow conditions are extremely volatile and will continue to be as the snow carries on falling. Heavy snow is expected to set in on Thursday night across the Pyrenees and is not forecast to stop for almost a week. Current forecasts are pointing towards around a metre of snow by Sunday followed by even more next week. Some great skiing is likely as a result although be careful to heed the avalanche warnings as the danger level is likely to rise significantly over the coming days. A further 15-40cm of snow is forecast for both Norway and Sweden over the weekend, adding to the already good conditions. Some sunnier weather is expected at the start of next week, providing the perfect opportunity to head out and enjoy the new snow. Bulgaria is also expecting some heavy snow over the weekend, with Bansko looking at more than 40cm of fresh snow over the weekend. Unfortunately less is forecast where it’s needed in Pamporovo, but 15cm could still fall in the next five days. Further heavy snow is expected in Scotland before the weekend is up. The heaviest falls are set to shift from the west to the east during Friday, with a further 25cm expected for Cairngorm, The Lecht and Glenshee.
