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 04-Dec-2017)

As the season comes towards its end in Austria, it seems that winter will continue for a little while yet. Fresh snow has been falling across the resorts that remain open, and temperatures have been as low -5C in some places, meaning that conditions up high are excellent for the time of year. Around the Obergurgl region, which is where the majority of our featured resorts are still operating, there has been around 5cm of new snow for Kaunertal (127/194cm), and 20cm for Obergurgl 25/120cm). Although visibility was limited on Thursday due to the continuing snow and cloud, once the current front moves over skiers are likely to find a nice mixture of packed powder on piste and great areas of untouched snow off to the side. Elsewhere, Kitzbuhel (0/70cm) in the Skiwelt was still running 4/57 lifts on Thursday, and received 6cm of new snow overnight. However, whilst conditions up high continue to improve, the lower runs to resort remain closed. Over the remainder of Thursday and into Friday more snow is forecast, and Hintertux (70/235cm) could receive 85cm. The weather is then expected to change on Saturday as a band of high pressure starts to creep in.

European Weather Outlook

Across the central European Alps, snow and cold temperatures are forecast to stick around until Saturday. Accumulations of snow on the upper slopes could be huge for the time of year, with some Swiss resorts predicting around 80cm over the course of today and Friday. By the weekend the snow is predicted to subside in many regions and a mixture of sun and cloud is expected for much of Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland. In the Pyrenees, Saturday should be the pick of the day for any skiing in Andorra. Our featured resorts are now closed for the season, but for anyone strapping on their skins, you can expect a mixture of sun and cloud, with temperatures around +3C In Germany, 44cm of fresh snow is being forecast for Garmisch (0/380cm), who will be in disbelief at the moment for all the snow they have received of late. Further north you can expect temperatures of around -3C and snow showers in Norway, which are set to continue right through to Sunday for resorts such Trysil. Across the border in Sweden, the weather should be fairly similar, but any snow that does fall is likely to be light and bring only 1-2cm. Despite some recent biting temperatures and cold winds in the UK, any snow that does fall on the Scottish mountains is most likely to be on Thursday. Thereafter, rain could destroy any hopes of some late season turns.
