Description

Join a small group of skiers and head into the snow-drenched wilderness of the Austrian Alps in search of fresh rewarding challenges.

Targeted for advanced skiers, you can join if you can comfortably ski in all off-piste conditions such as narrow couloirs and steeper terrain. This group may occasionally ski tour to find the perfect powder. This is a faster group so you will need a high level of fitness.

And as well as having a good level of fitness, you have a good grasp of snow safety and rescue procedures.

Your overall skiing experience should be a minimum of 15 weeks with at least 6 weeks of off-piste skiing with a guide.

We’ll explore the Arlberg regions of St Anton, Stuben, Zurs and Lech, a mountain massif that stretches out across the Austrian states of Vorarlberg and Tyrol. It is home to breathtaking scenery and world-class backcountry skiing.

It is the largest skiing area in the whole of Austria, and holds one of the biggest reputations in the Alps. Its long history has developed its reputation as being the cradle of alpine skiing.

We’ll focus on St. Anton, which has a long history of skiing that has fully developed into the present. It hosted the Alpine World Ski Championship in 2001 and is constantly listed as one of the best regions for skiing in the world.

Away from the excellent groomed runs, St. Anton is home to a great number of backcountry routes.

St. Christoph is a mountain hamlet, which in the 14th century a local shepherd built a hospice for travellers crossing the Arlberg pass. At 1,800 meters high, St. Christoph is one of the highest resorts in the Alps.

Stuben is a charming hamlet resting in Arlberg, where you can discover the origins of alpine skiing. Located in the heart of the massif, its accessibility is top-class and is arguably the region’s powder capital.

Zürs is particularly desired for its excellent backcountry skiing, and has been home to a number of Olympic champions. And with very few trees populating its slopes, there are clear views of the nearby peaks.

Lech am Arlberg is a ski resort that rests on the riverbank of Lech. Recent years has witnessed the resort become one of the world’s top ski destinations, and home to several ski champions.

Piste To Powder and our guide Florian really showed what a remarkable place St Anton is. Thanks for unforgettable days on the mountain!

Myself and a friend spent two days in the Open Level 1 off piste group. We weren't quite sure what to expect as we hadn't done any off piste skiing before. Our guide was keen to show us the basics and took us down increasing routes of difficulty throughout the day which were all very fun! We always felt safe despite being off piste and that our guide was looking out for us, and it really helped us develop our technique. We had two epic days of finding lovely snow away from the pistes despite it not having snowed recently. Thanks so much to Jakob for his time. We'll be back again next year!

Matthias and Flo found amazing powder snow with no people on the busiest week if the year. Zoe did a great job communicating with us to find guides at the last minute.

I have been to Sankt Anton number of times to chase some off-piste lines and never hired a guide until now. We had two epic days but yet very different. One day of touring and even though the mountains were lacking snow our guide managed to find some fresh untouched lines. The second day was after it had snowed quite bit and we managed to ski untouched powder the whole day without doing any touring. I will definitely hire I guide again the next time I will be in Sankt Anton. Thanks for two epic days and great companionship Flo!

Visited this week with my 15 year old son. Great time. Petra was fabulous. She was patient when we needed a little more time than her, and guided us to terrific runs, found the best snow possible (tough week of snow for St. Anton) and was simply a joy to spend two days with. We hope to return to St Anton, and would absolutely engage Piste to Powder again. If the snow is good, I’m certainly they’ll find the best snow. If the snow is not good, as with this week, it really made our week to have a couple of the days more interesting with off piste skiing with Petra.

We used Piste to Powder for 3 days with a friend. Mauritz O. was an excellent guide, judging the group ski level very well. He worked hard to find us fresh powder that made the trip very memorable. Will definitely be using them again.

My friend and I (both snowboarders with several backcountry trips under our belt) had a private guide for the day after 150cm+ snowfall and severe avalanche conditions. Our guide Stefan was excellent and very aware of reading the risk levels throughout the day. We got some amazing lines and Stefan was very professional and easy to talk to and guided us away from some of the riskier places. Would definitely recommend to all. We will definitely come back next year. Thank you!

We had two great off piste days with Florian from piste to powder, as our guide. Florian got the balance just right for our family (including two children aged 14 and 10). We skied some great off piste routes, including some steeper terrain and we also did some fun tree skiing, accessing places we would not have been able to reach on our own without a guide. Two excellent days. I would highly recommend Piste to Powder, and in particular our guide Florian.
