In our new column we will be showing you at the start of the weekend each week ski resorts that; already have good snow conditions, are awaiting lots of new snow, or are absolutely worth a trip for other reasons.



For this Weekend (16-17. January 2016) we recommend Kronplatz! 


Snow
The conditions at Kronplatz are very good, on the mountain there is around 55cm of snow and in the valley there is roughly 25cm. Due to the 15cm of snow that fell in the last few days and the artificial snow machines the slopes here are in an excellent state.

Wetter
On Saturday there will be a mix of sun and clouds. Sunday will also be similar, however with more hours of sunlight. In the Austrian ski resorts it is forecasted to be very cloudy and to snow strongly, so therefore for the purpose of the weather, Kronplatz is worth a trip in itself. With ferociously icy cold weather (minus 15 degrees in some places) it is advisable to wrap up warm this weekend.

Slopes and lifts
44 of the 46 slopes here are currently opened. That therefore means that there will be 113km of slopes that will be available for you to ski down this weekend. The mix of easy runs as well as challenging slopes is something for all skiers to look forward to. A route well worthy of a ski down is the particularly long route towards Bruneck or Reischach.

Special
The special feature about Kronplatz is its special locations. When arriving at the top of the summit you will find yourself on a tree-less plateau, from which you can ski in 3 different directions. There you will also have a 360 degree view of the wonderful Dolomite mountain range and also lots of sunshine.

Ski pass prices
A daily pass for adults costs €45. All those who were born after 1999 pay €32 for a daily pass.

Journey
From Munich you can reach the ski resort in roughly 3 hours by car.

In our new column we will be showing you at the start of the weekend each week ski resorts that; already have good snow conditions, are awaiting lots of new snow, or are absolutely worth a trip for other reasons.

For this weekend (9th -10th January 2016) we recommend St.Anton am Arlberg!



Snow

The snow conditions in Arlberg are extraordinarily good considering the winter we have had so far. In the last few days approximately 25cm of new snow fell. Moreover, it was also cold enough to use the artificial snow machines, so therefore there is around 100cm on the mountain and roughly 30cm in the valley.

Weather

On Saturday it is forecasted to be cloudy and to snow throughout the day. On Sunday however there will be better conditions. From time to time the sun can shine through the clouds until more snow is expected in the evening.

Slopes and Lifts

The slopes are all in a top condition and they promise an incredible skiing experience. All of the most important slopes and lifts are open, which will enable you access to ski a vast area of slopes with a wide range of difficult and easier slopes to choose from.

Special

Those of you who, after a strenuous day of skiing, still have enough energy to party should drop in at Moosewirt. The Tyrolean ski hut, which has labeled itself as ‘probably the worst ski hut in Arlberg’, offers an unbeatable après-ski experience. The legendary DJ Gerhard, who has played everyday at Moosewirt since 1994 and has only missed 12 days of partying due to an illness, plays an endless amount of Austro-German hits.

It seems that the New Year has brought all the snow we’ve been waiting for. Since the turn of the year there has been lots of snow, the majority of which has fallen in the western part of the Alps. Ski resorts situated in the northern French Alps and resorts in the southwestern part of Switzerland have benefitted the most from these recent snowfalls.


France 

Chamonix is reported to have approximately 1m of fresh snow coming this week, with 40cm of powder falling today. Resorts such as Val Thorens, Courchevel, Val d’isère and Tignes continue to offer some of the best on-piste skiing conditions across the Alps. Val Thorens had 20cm of fresh snow yesterday (3rd January) and even more snow is forecasted for today and tomorrow (roughly 25-30cm). Meanwhile Tignes, Val d’isère, Courchevel, all of whom have had good levels of snowfall recently, will get roughly 20cm of snow over the course of today and tomorrow. This snowfall will continue into Wednesday and Thursday, with between 40-60cm of snow.

Switzerland

In Switzerland, there promises to be better skiing conditions, particularly in the southwest. Yesterday (3rd January) Nendaz, Thyon 2000 and Veysonnaz all had approximately 40cm of new snow. They are all awaiting close to 30cm more powder this week. Verbier had 15cm of new snow yesterday; the snow here will continue to fall here until Thursday (about 35cm). Saas Fee is also said to great on-piste skiing conditions, with the snow height on the mountain reaching around 140cm, additionally, about 25cm more snow will fall here throughout the week. Zermatt currently has good skiing conditions, 8cm of new snow fell last night and there is going to be a continual flurry of snow (just under 20cm) until Thursday. Ski resorts in eastern Switzerland can expect light snowfall on Thursday (around 8cm) but will unfortunately miss out on heavier snowfall experienced by ski resorts in the west.

Austria

The forecast for Austria this week looks rather positive. There will be a higher concentration of snowfall in the west of Austria. In Obergurgl-Hochgurgl the snow depth is 76cm on the mountain, yet there it is being reported that 10cm of powder will fall in the coming week. Sölden currently has a snow height of 135cm on the mountain in addition to the very good on-piste conditions.  St. Anton had 5cm of new snow last night and can expect roughly 20cm snow this week with the heaviest snowfall coming on Thursday (11cm). Ischgl had 10cm of snowfall yesterday and will be expecting just under 15cm more this week.

Italy

The current snow conditions in Italy look very bleak. Italy has struggled for snow so far except for one part, the extreme northwest. Ski resorts such as Courmayeur, La Thuile and Cervinia are all projected to have more than 130cm of snow for the next week. There is currently a snow height of 140cm at Cervinia, 65cm at La Thuile and 45cm at Courmayeur. La Thuile and Cervinia have also been forecasted to have roughly 35cm of snow for today which will add to the 15cm of snow that fell at both of these resorts just two days ago.
In our new column we will be showing you at the start of the weekend each week ski resorts that; already have good snow conditions, are awaiting lots of new snow, or are absolutely worth a trip for other reasons.

For this weekend (19th-20th December) we recommend Obergurgl-Hochgurgl! 


Snow
Following the severe lack of snow this year most ski resorts have barely any lifts operating, visible grass on hills or either has the majority of their slopes closed. However, Obergurgl-Hochgurgl has surprisingly good skiing conditions given the extraordinarily mild weather we have had so far this winter.
The so-called ‘diamond of the Alps’ is renowned for its snow assured slopes and this year is no exception. On the mountain there is currently 66cm of snow, although this is a mixture of artificial snow and powder, the pistes are reported to be in a good skiing condition. The last snowfall here was on Thursday where approximately 10cm of snow fell.

Weather
The weather forecast for this weekend in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl looks promising with lots of sunshine. You’ll be able to enjoy the fantastic views from the mountaintops! There is the possibility that it could be slightly cloudy in some places on Saturday, however if they were to appear these clouds will ease off for Sunday. It will also be very mild and plenty of sunshine on Sunday, so it could be a good idea to go to Hohe Mut Alm to lie on the sunbathing terrace! There will also be roughly 5 hours of sunshine for both Saturday and Sunday.

Slopes and Lifts
At Obergurgl-Hochgurgl there is currently 92km/110km of skiing slopes open. The majority of the lifts are also presently operating (19/24).
Furthermore, there are 30/35 open slopes for you to bomb down this weekend.
There are a wide variety of slopes at Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, including a lot of slopes for beginners and intermediate skiers and there are also some freeriding routes available too.

Special
The Top Mountain star, which is located at 3080m above sea level has a panorama bar and a viewing platform for you to enjoy the fantastic weather and potentially amazing views this weekend!
In addition to the Top Mountain Star there is also the Hohe Mut Alm, which serves top-quality Tyrolean food. You will be able to enjoy your food whilst gazing at Ötztal Alps. Moreover, the Audi Quattro Festkogl Alm, which was opened two years ago, is an incredible piece of architecture and is well worth a visit!

Ski pass prices
The ski pass prices this weekend fall within the changing from low season to peak season so don’t be too surprised if you pay a different price on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday (still low season) it costs €47 for adults, €33 for children, €38 for youth and €44 for seniors. On Sunday the prices rise to €49 for adults and the prices remain the same for the other categories.

Travel
You are able to reach Obergurgl-Hochgurgl in just under 3 hours depending on traffic from Munich.

Après-ski songs for Austria & Germany

There are many essential components needed to create the perfect ambiance at après-ski bars. The venue, your mates that you go with, the cold beer and even the countless shots of Jägermeister all play a fundamental role in producing them entertaining and unforgettable nights. However, the most striking element of Austrian après-skis is undoubtedly the thumping Austro-German pop songs.


They are so good in fact, that we have decided to compile top songs for the 2015/16 ski season!

For this weekend (12th-13th December 2015) we recommend Saalbach-Hinterglemm!


Special Event

Saalbach-Hinterglemm has become the biggest connected ski resort in Austria this year as a result of the incorporation of Fieberbrunn, which was formerly a neighbouring ski resort. However, we recommend this ski resort this weekend for another reason: RaveOnSnow!

The famous winter festival has 70 different DJ’s and live acts this weekend, and once again, Saalbach-Hinterglemm welcomes 10,000 fans from all around the world.

The various ‘party stations’, such as: the Open Air Stage in Saalbach, the summit camps on the Schattberg mountain and the underground parking lot will play host to the finest electronic music from an extraordinarily good line-up. The line–up for this year includes: Sven Väth, Oliver Koletzki, Matthias Tanzmann and many more. 

Snow

The conditions to ski round Saalbach and its surroundings are unfortunately not the greatest this weekend, however this applies for practically everywhere in the Alps (apart from on the glaciers). Currently on the mountaintop there is around 30cm of snow, at the middle station there is approximately 20cm and in the valley there is barely any at all. Roughly 5cm of snow fell on Wednesday, and that will unfortunately be it for this weekend.

Weather

Yet the outlook for this weekend, in terms of the weather forecast, is relatively positive. There will be both sunny and cloudy spells on Saturday, and on Sunday these clouds will disappear and in its place there will be sunshine and blue skies! These great weather conditions allow you to take some smashing photos from the mountain concert whilst partying at RaveOnSnow! The temperature will be lingering around 0 degrees all weekend.

Slopes and lifts

There are already 90km of pistes available this weekend for you to crash down. 45 of the 70 lifts are already up and running. However, don’t expect amazing skiing conditions. For all of those who have basically come to party and those who aren’t after top quality skiing conditions, the slopes here at Saalbach will be passable.

Skipass

For adults the lift pass costs €43.50, the youth rate is at €32.50 and children can go skiing for €21.50 here. In case you only wanted to party, there are passes available from 9am to 12pm. It is €35 for adults and the youth rate is €26.

Travel

You are able to reach Saalbach-Hinterglemm’s resort in less than 3 hours from Munich (under normal traffic conditions).

Best ski resort: Our recommendation for the weekend (5th - 6th December)

In our new column we present you at the start of the weekend every week ski resorts that; already have good snow conditions, are awaiting lots of new snow, or are absolutely worth a trip for other reasons.


For this weekend (5th-6th December 2015) we recommend Sölden! 

Snow

On the mountain peak (3200m) you can prepare yourselves to plummet down slopes that are in great conditions (137cm snow height). By the middle station there is approximately around 20cm snow, meanwhile in the valley you will be still waiting for snow. The last snowfall fell here on (Tuesday 1st December).

Weather

Saturday morning will be foggy with limited visibility before it will brighten up and eventually the sun will shine through. On Sunday it will be relatively similar, lots of sunshine with less cloud-cover than Saturday. Additionally, it will not be too cold. The temperature of the high-lying positions will be around the minus degree mark. Sounds like wonderful forecast for going skiing!

Slopes and Lifts

In Sölden, you have the advantage that in conjunction with the designated winter skiing area there is also an additional skiing area on the glacier. In this area there are already 8 out of 10 lifts running, whereas there are 13 of 23 lifts running for the rest of the resort, thus meaning that there is already 100km of slopes available for you to ski on this weekend.

Special

Those who have seen the new James Bond Film “Spectre” and asked themselves, where the impressive shot of the summit with the extravagant building was taken, that is the new feature on “Gaislachkogl”. If you glance through the huge glass panels you will have a stunning panorama of the Ötztal landscape, this would surely be a once in a lifetime experience. Find more photos here.

Ski pass prices

Adults pay €50 for a day pass, teenagers rates start from €38.50 and for children it is €25.50 a day.
You can recharge an existing ski pass on myskiticket.com here!

Travel

The ski resort is reachable from Munich in roughly 3 hours.
