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 20-Dec-2014)

There was an abundance of cloud seen across Austria on Thursday 18th December with some resorts reporting light rainfall lower down and light snowfall at high altitude. The temperature in Austria has risen with some mid-mountain levels being reported at 6C, this has unfortunately hindered some snowmaking for resort runs but pistes remain in a better state higher up. Despite the poor weather there are still good riding conditions particularly on the higher resorts and glaciers. Solden (0/190cm) has plenty of options at high altitude, although the resort runs are closed there were 24 lifts running in total on Thursday. A recent snowfall of around 5cm on Wednesday has bolstered the high altitude runs and resort teams are reporting good, groomed pistes as a result. The current warm weather is expected to subside and drop back down to below freezing, and the weekend’s forecast is indicating cloudy skies on Saturday with a good chance of fresh snow to all of our featured resorts. Some resorts are expecting up to 8cm. It could get much warmer at the start of the week but come Christmas time the temperature is looking like dropping back down again.

European Weather Outlook

The weather across Europe is set to be predominantly sunny as we move into next week. Some clouds could deliver fresh snow at the start of the weekend but this will mostly be in Andorra, Austria, Germany and Switzerland. This will not be enough to dramatically enhance the overall riding conditions but fresh snow is still a nice thing to receive. Next week will then be predominantly sunny with the freezing level rising to over 3,000m for Tuesday 23rd December before plummeting again to around 1,000m for Christmas. There is good news for Christmas too as further fresh snowfall is forecast on Christmas Day or Boxing Day at most European resorts. Norway and Sweden are forecast a different week to most of Europe though, with fresh snow predicted on most days. The Swedish resort of Salen may be the exception here though as less snow may land at this resort. The Scottish resorts should see a similarly cloudy week to the Scandinavian resorts although rain may result at times and strong winds are expected, which could affect lift operations. Fresh snowfall is forecast at times though, and Christmas visitors could be in for a great time with snow on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
