Best time to ski in St Anton

Hello Everyone,

We have never skied at St Anton before and are planning a weeks ski trip for Feb/March 2017. When is the best time of the season for good snow and reasonable weather? Typically is the snow better mid February than the first week of March? I guess there would be more sunshine in March but does this effect the snow quality? Thank you for your thoughts!

february is high season, and there would not be much difference in snow conditions between feb and early march. so go either at the very very end of feb , or early march.

sunshine depends entirely on the weather at the time, and nobody can predict that, unfortunately

Schoolholidays in Austria go until 25th of February so I would recommend to stay in March. First 2 weeks of March the snow quality normally will be very good, you don't have to worry wbout that in St.Anton.

Kind regards_Chrissy

I'd echo March. February is a busy month as most of Europe have holidays at some time or other so it will be busy. To give you some help, the peak weeks the main ski school are taking high season staff for are from 12/02 to 03/03 for the Febuary holidays.

No real need for a car in St Anton, and there are direct trains from Innsbruck. With the new Flexenbahn being built at the moment, pretty much the whole area on the lift pass is interconnected, the only bit that isn't is Sonnenkopf, which is reached via free bus from Stuben.
