We are SAFE SERVICE! Safe Hospitality comes first – We’ve partnered up with the austrian SAFE SERVICE initiative launched by the Tirolean Chamber of Commerce.
We’re kicking off the winter season on the 13. December 2021 – so a few days later than expected, but hey, just in time for some Christmas pow 🤩 🥳 Have you seen the forecast?
Looking forward to the feel of fresh snow under your skis again, discovering great powder runs with fresh tracks away from the crowds and sharing laughter and fun with our guides?
Get ready for a bumper season as restrictions relax…
If you can’t wait for next winter to get away , why not consider a summer trip to the mountains?
“The season that never was” – both strange and surreal for all who experienced it. Empty slopes, great conditions but throughout we have missed all of you who make St Anton special.
Ski touring has long been popular amongst locals escaping the resort into the winter wilderness, however in recent years it has grown in popularity as visitors search out the untracked exhilarating powder descents far from the lifts. The vast mountain ranges of the Arlberg provide an almost endless choice of tours.

Yet, they keep getting better.
We skied slopes we hadn't done before and eventhough it was busy and we thought it would be impossible to find good untracked snow, the guides were always able to find untouched galleys with perfect snow conditions. It is the perfect way to make the most out of a good skiing holiday and we will definitely do it again next season. read less - 2019-03-24CADebbie

After spending my first day on the piste with long lines, crowded slopes and spending far too much time looking at the map, I was anxious to get off-piste and away from the crowds. I decided to join an open group level 2 with Piste to Powder and was rewarded with incredible scenery, endless fresh tracks on open bowls and a great guide (Bernie) who knew the mountain well and took us to the best spots that I certainly would never have found or ventured to on my own. I'll admit that a couple of the drop ins and traverses made me go weak at the knees at first glance, but Bernie instilled confidence and was very patient. I enjoyed the small group experience and comradery of like minded skiiers. We were all exhausted at the end of the day but were on a high from the experience. I highly recommend this organization and would go with them again in a heartbeat if I'm ever back in the area. read less - 2017-02-23

Our guide Florian was simply amazing. He was so patient and dealt with two people with very different skiing styles brilliantly. The communication prior to the day was excellent and the payment system simple and efficient. I really cannot recommend Piste to Powder enough. Also highlights the importance of equipment and guiding for off piste. We came across an avalanche and two guides from piste to powder immediately organised everyone into efficient and safe search parties. Thankfully no one was hurt but shows how professional and decent they are. read less - 2019-01-06

Snow still wasn't deep but the guide found us fun off-piste skiing with some fresh powder. It was so much fun and we went to places I could never find on my own. So I signed up for the whole week and it was the best decision I could have made! Tomas took us over the mountains, down the valleys and through the trees in search for untouched powder and we found loads of it. He was extremely professional and I felt safe at all times with him. Being guided the whole week made all the other expenses of the trip so much more worthwhile. read less - 2017-01-21

We skied 4 days after the last storm and our private guide, Moritz, found us plenty of freshies. I can’t say enough about him. His personality was fantastic and he spoke perfect English.
My kids (12 and 15) and I are solid, off-piste skiers. Not cliff huckers, but we like it deep and steep. Moritz watched us ski and found us perfectly challenging lines that pushed us to our limits. Moritz was super patient with the kids and his positivity helped our stoke when things got challenging. We owe the whole experience to him.
I can’t say enough about moritz and piste to powder! I’d definitely use them again! read less - 2020-02-18

Uniek dat Piste to Powder open groepen aanbied, waardoor skiën met een gids voor kleine gezelschappen veel toegankelijker wordt. Na het voor-skien werden groepen verdeeld op ski-niveau. Door de verse sneeuw hebben we geweldige onverstoorde sneeuw gevonden! We voelden ons erg op ons gemak bij gids Martin. Hij kwam bekwaam over, had oog voor de groepsleden en heeft er voor gezorgd dat we twee mooie dagen hebben gehad. read less - 2017-01-23

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. Suzannah (Lloyd) read less - 2020-02-26

Safety equipment (shovels, probes and transponders) are provided at no additional charge but you may need to bring your own backpack.
The level one courses taken two/three years ago included tuition and exercises to build technique and confidence before going off piste.
The five day, level two "course" took this year had little tuition and plenty of deep snow experience. In spite of limited snow our guide consistently found untracked slopes even if some of the drop offs and traverses were not for the faint hearted.
Take cash for lunch and the occasional taxi back to the lifts. read less - 2017-02-13Ben F.
