St Anton Resort Info
Famous for its awesome skiing and equally awesome après ski, St Anton is mostly an experts' resort, with its serious off-piste, moguls and powder. St Anton's pistes tend to be undergraded, however, with first-class guiding and instruction the mountain can be enjoyed by most levels, apart, perhaps, from very beginners.
Although St Anton doesn't quite match the chocolate box reputation of other Austrian resorts, it does offer an exceptional range of après-ski, with bars and clubs galore. Restaurants can be a bit hit and miss, but as most of St Anton's visitors just want to get on with the party, a quick snack is all that's required. Off-snow activites are a little thin on the ground, although you can always jump on a train and explore Innsbruck which is only one hour away.

Snow Overview - Austria (snow news updated 16-Apr-2014)
Fine, sunny weather provided great visibility for the majority of Austrian resorts on Monday 14th April, with spring snow softening quickly during the morning.
Head high for the best snow conditions, with the likes of Hintertux (30/400cm), Solden (0/301cm), Kaunertal (293/333cm) and Pitztal (236/315cm) offering some of the best skiing in Austria at the moment on their upper slopes. Hintertux reported a dusting of fresh snow over the weekend, along with Obergurgl (30/108cm) and St Anton (15/120cm).
The forecast is for clouds to build at the end of Monday bringing a chance of fresh snow over the next few days before the weather brightens up for the start of the Easter weekend. Clouds could then move back in from Easter Sunday.
European Weather Outlook
The weather this week across the majority of European resorts is for mostly sunny weather before clouds build on Easter Sunday. Any snow that does fall next week will be on the higher slopes as the freezing level will be around 2,500m.
Austria is the exception though as cloudy skies are expected to dominate this week. The good news is that the freezing level could dip down to below 1,500m this week so fresh snow could fall. Next week will see it climb back above 2,500m and the precipitation will be mostly wet.
