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 24-Apr-2014)
Some excellent skiing conditions are available at the remaining open Austrian ski resorts. It is mostly the high altitude resorts that remain open and due to their height the snow is still well preserved.
Kuhtai (60/90cm) is Austria’s highest skiing town and although it does not have the deepest base depths in Austria the skiing is excellent this week. Make the most of it though as they close for the season on Sunday 27th April.
Good skiing can still be enjoyed in the Arlberg ski area, especially on the upper slopes. This is the last week of the season for this area too.
Cloudy weather is forecast over the weekend and into next week. This is expected to bring rain to many locations, but snow could land higher up. Kaunertal (305/343cm) and Pitztal (239/322cm) are forecast the most snow, with over 60cm predicted to land at mid-mountain level by the end of next week.
European Weather Outlook
Cloudy skies will dominate over the weekend and next week in Europe. For skiers this is good news though as fresh snow is forecast. The greatest snowfall is predicted to hit resorts in Switzerland and Italy, with well over half a metre expected at the likes of Verbier, Zermatt, Saas Fee, Cervinia and Gressoney-la-Trinite. While less snow is expected to hit Austria and France, there should still be enough to provide some excellent late season skiing conditions.
