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 01-Mar-2017)
There was plenty of really good skiing in Austria on Monday 27th of February and with more snow on the way this week, things are set to get even better.
There were some really excellent conditions in the Kitzski area, with both Kitzbuhel (65/95cm) and Kirchberg (65/95cm) in great condition. The slopes up high were packed and grippy and looked a real treat. There were spring conditions at the bottom and the sun dominated despite a few clouds.
Conditions were equally good in St Christoph (60/180cm) and St Anton (60/180cm) mainly thanks to the new snow. The powder is mostly tracked out by now but the great on piste conditions make up for it. More snow is forecast over the week starting tomorrow. It was a beautiful day to be skiing in Damuls/Mellau (70/115cm) today with slopes in very good condition and the sun shining overhead. The Mittagsspitze peak and the surrounding slopes were looking particularly good.
All things considered, Austria provides an excellent option at the moment.
European Weather Outlook
It is set to be a complicated week for The Alps. Much needed heavy snowfalls will start late on Monday (27th) night and remain all day Tuesday, tapering off by early Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfalls will be in France and Italy, but no matter where you are skiing in The Alps there will be fresh snow. Strong winds at altitude are forecast, so some ski areas may experience limited lift operations at times. It will be an excellent but challenging week of skiing ahead for the Alps in what can only be described as varied and complex season so far.
This weekend may see another round of heavy snowfalls, mostly on the southern and eastern sides of the Alps. Check back Thursday for a more comprehensive overview of upcoming conditions.
Elsewhere, snow is expected in the Pyrenees on Thursday, but not as heavy as what we will see in The Alps. Tuesday will see light to moderate snowfalls - Not enough to call a powder day but certainly enough to make on-piste conditions excellent.
Further north in Scandinavia, another typical weather week lies ahead. Light snow falls and fairly dull overcast skies will be the dominate feature. Temperatures will remain slightly below freezing creating most soft snow conditions.
