5 Great Things About Skiing at Easter

If you think the only time to ski is January or February.....maybe early March if pushed, you could be missing a trick.  If you choose a higher altitude or glacier resort, late season skiing can be fantastic; here are just a few reasons why:-

1) Longer days - if you're used to skiing earlier in the season when the days draw in quickly, you'll enjoy the longer sunshine hours in late season, and longer lift opening hours

2) Lower prices - of all the peak school holiday weeks, Easter is lowest priced with some great bargains to be had.  If you can go late but outside the school holidays, even better

3) Fewer people - less chance of lift queues, meaning you can make the most of the - often - excellent conditions

4) Sun Terraces and music - many resorts take advantage of the sunnier days and move the apres hour outside - Beer, BBQs and dancing........

which brings us around to........

5) Snowbombing - mooted as "The World's No1 Music Festival on Snow" - a unique blend of skiing or boarding by day, partying by night, in the fantastic resort of Mayrhofen.  This year's Party runs 4 to 9 April and the line up includes The Prodigy, Fat Boy Slim, Bastille and Groove Armada

Even if you've already skied this season, it seems a long time ago, doesn't it?   With some great offers around, why not break out the Factor 30, swap the big jacket for a softshell and try to squeeze another week in, before the ski gear goes back in the loft.

New Lifts in St Anton

 

Is the World famous Arlberg ski area about to be even better? In Winter 2016/17 it will become the largest interlinked ski area in Austria! Four new cable cars, about to be constructed, will bridge the gap between St. Anton, the St Christoph side and the Lech, Zurs side completely removing the need for skiers to board a ski bus between the two ski areas. This new ski-link will create complete ski convenience as many of the properties in Born 2 Ski's Arlberg programme offer skiing from the front door.

Famed in Austria as 'the birthplace of skiing', the magnificent Arlberg is one of only a few select ski areas to fully justify a 'world-class' reputation. Renowned for its challenging slopes, both on and off-piste, the area also includes many wonderful miles of picturesque intermediate skiing, from high altitude, snow-sure open bowls to picturesque tree-lined pistes down to the valley. The area has two distinct halves. The first half links St. Anton with its even higher neighbours, St. Christoph and Stuben, and an efficient ski bus service connects this side of the region with the huge network of slopes surrounding Lech and Zürs, including the excellent 'Borderpark' above Lech.

The recently added Auenfeldjet lift which links the ski areas of Lech/Zürs and Warth-Schröcken adds a further 66km of piste as well as numerous deep snow runs to the Arlberg ski area.

You thought you liked St Anton before? Wait until you see it next season.......

A new Miners Camp Restaurant will replace the former Snow Hut restaurant to include 500 indoor seats and a state of the art kitchen. Miners Camp will be located next to the base of the Silverlode Lift and the Quicksilver Gondola terminal. Meanwhile, upgrades to Summit House will improve the flow of diners and increase seating.
