If you can’t wait for next winter to get away , why not consider a summer trip to the mountains?
Get ready for a bumper season as restrictions relax…
“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.
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?

Interested in a 3 day, Girls ski touring Camp in the stunning snow-sure Silvretta? If you are an Off Piste skier, either new to touring or already have touring experience but would like to progress your skills, in the fun company of like-minded women, then this is for you!
‘World’s best ski resort’ – ‘Best place to ski’ – ‘Best freeride area’: These are just some of the awards that the Ski Arlberg resort has received. And when you ask people who have skied its off piste area what they think of it, one answer clearly stands out – “no other place like it!” Here are three main aspects that make the off piste in St. Anton, Lech Zürs, Stuben & St. Christoph and the ‘cradle of alpine skiing’ so special.
Do you want to kick off your ski season already before the lifts in St. Anton am Arlberg start running? If you are as excited as we are to finally put on the skis again, then join us this November for a 3-day pre-season warm up at the Stubai Glacier ski area.

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 - 2019-03-24Pedro A.

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 - 2017-02-23Jan d.

Ok, circumstances were more or less PERFECT, fresh pack of snow and sun, but even then the guide needs to make the right choices. Florian made us all feel comfortable and safe, took us down beautiful slopes, and did push us to do the extra run. Top day! Recommend PtP! read less - 2019-02-09Kmd379

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 - 2017-01-21M5869INtomb

Back then I skied off-piste with the Arlberg Ski School for years but always without helmet and without all the avalanche gear. This time I ended up skiing in areas I had skied before but felt now a lot safer. Thomas was our guide for the week and he was excellent. I will never forget the 1.1/2 hrs hike we did the first day. He kept on saying "you have to earn your turns". The hike was well worth it since we found fresh powder that I thought I would never would see that day. Every day was different but we always ended up skiing some nice powder in areas where we were pretty much all alone: just our group of 2 to 5. Then when we got back to the slopes at the end of the day it was just like a nightmare. Fortunately we only had a very short distance to ski on those crowded slopes.
Really liked that Thomas set up a WhatsApp group to enable us to share pictures and videos. He also filmed us a lot and he took some great pictures: he is a real good photographer.
I was in town with 45 others. Only 5 of us signed up with piste-to-powder, 5 signed up with the ski school. All others skied by themselves (or in small groups) and ended up complaining about icy and crowded slopes. They had a so-so experience; we had an epic experience. read less - 2020-02-26Marcello .

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! read less - 2019-03-10jaybizNYC

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. read less - 2020-01-26

Following our experience I would insist that anyone I knew who was going to St. Anton sign up with Piste to Power, and specifically with Moritz.
Moritz designed each days adventure based on what he felt would be most fun for us. He did not have a set plan that he uses for all his guests but immediately picked up on the fact that we love adventure, hiking, and fresh tracks. For three days Moritz took us all over off-piste, never to the same place twice, and wowed us with the most beautiful scenery, hiking, and skiing. It hadn't snowed in over a week, but it had been warm and rainy - the on piste skiing was poor - and Moritz was still able to find us untouched, knee deep powder for every single run. read less - 2020-03-01Maxime P.

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
