    Hi folks. Heading to the Dolomites during the first week of February (fingers crossed they get snow again - ugh). Then making my way toward Zurich and have 4-5 ski days. Looking for recommendations for non-Arlberg (already been to St Anton a few times) locations with good access to steeps/couloirs. Entertaining Innsbruck for Axamer-Lizum/Nordkette, and maybe also staying at either Solden and Ischgl. Do either Solden or Ischgl fit the bill? Don't know too much about either of those places, particularly off-piste around Ischgl. If you had to pick one to actually stay in (not looking for a wild time), which would you choose? Would appreciate any tips! Thanks.

    There's a lot more terrain in ischgl and Sölden than axams and Nordkette. Higher altitudes make them a safer bet too. Basing in Innsbruck gives access to a couple of smaller resorts plus Stubaier Glacier and you have the city. Paznaun Valley has kappl, ischgl and galtür, Sölden has Obergurgl and Vent (for touring). Ischgl is a pain to stay at tho, expensive and full on apre ski scene, I'd give it a miss and base in Kappl or Galtür.

    We’re from California and storms don’t magically appear out of dry forecasts here, but not sure if that’s the case for a 10-day forecast in the Alps.

    Would be great to meet up with y’all and share some turns, lunch and beers are on us.
    We seem to be locked in for a dry spell. Best bet will be to stay high and enjoy the sun. Use the skins if your bringing them.

    If you find yourself coming to western CH (Vaud & Valais) give a shout out and we can link up. I'm a weekend warrior but get out midweek from time to time.

    The new model run has a light at the end of the tunnel.

    10 days out it can still be a train though.

    Just wanted to post an update from last week. Was on a ski trip with some friends & family at FISS, and got some unexpected 50cm overnight on Xmass day. Nice present. Click image for larger version.

    Looks like parts of Austria may get 30cm Sat/Sun so we're headed that way. Staying in Feldkirch and likely skiing Damuls and Silvretta Montafon Fri/Sat and then either doing St. Anton or further east (Fieberbrunn) Sun-Tues.

    Send me a PM if anyone will be in the region, would love to meet up and/or split a guide a few more days for the Sunday-Tuesday period.

    arlberg has a lot of nice options to ski. with guide or with out.
    steep chutes down schindlergrat. get blasted and skied heavily.
    or the nice long run from albonagrat to langen ( just follow the tracks on albonagrat to the west)
    take the taxi(20e) back to the lift and not wait 45min for the public bus.

    there is nice runs from rendl to the hinteres rendl

    if you stop over in innsbruck on the way east give me a shout.
    looks like we will get 10cm here and 20-30 in fieberbrunn/kaprun area



    but u i am not the weather guru here!!
    enjoy the wiener-schnitzl

    Any opinions on whether we should try Obertauern or Fieberbrunn the next few days?

    Both seem to be getting about the same amount of snow. Obertauern claims a much bigger base. Fieberbrunn seems to have better terrain (but not sure if that’s in play with the current base).

    I checked the webcams on both regions on bergfex.com obertauern looks more appealing to me. Snowfall is neglectable as it will just be dust by the forecast.
