2019 trip to St Anton and Prague

Recommended Posts

I'm running a group ski trip to St Anton with an optional extension to Prague. Please think about joining me to explore the cradle of skiing. The apres scene in St Anton is legendary. The off-piste skiing is some of the best in the Alps. For those who have not skied in the Alps before, it dwarfs anything that you will find in North America. The scale of the Arlberg ski area is several times larger than the largest Western ski areas.

I can't make it, but sounds like a great trip. 

I have skied a few other places in Austria, but not St. Anton and always wanted to go there.  The thing I've heard about St. Anton is that if you've never skied the Alps it's a great first place to visit because it has it all; great and extensive terrain, great apres ski action, usually some of the better snow conditions in Europe, relatively moderate costs, and the Austrians generally treat tourists with respect and friendliness - Gemütlichkeit.

Bump. I still need a handful more people to run the trip. We're about 3/4 of the way to our minimum numbers, with 4 more weeks to secure the remainder. Who's on board?

I'm stoked for the trip. Current summit base depth is 142". I'm not sure that I've ever skied on a 12 foot base. And more is coming this week. About half of the lifts and a higher percentage of pistes are closed due to avalanche risk.

Hopefully it holds together for another 3 weeks until we go.
