I'm trying to fix me up some ski vacation in the Alps. First time since I just moved to these parts. Anyway, can't decide where to book for Feb (first or 2nd week). Will south keep it up or does anyone have an inkling of what might be ahead? Was thinking Innsbruck, but just not great now.
If I woud knew the answer I probably be rich.
It is normal that the southern parts get their first base in november. We also see winters in which January can be stormy with the odd rainy day. Even higher up. February is normally pretty good. The good thing about Inssbruck is that you have more options. You could go to the Nordkete which is a sort of city beach of Innsbruck. Axam (which is a former olympic destination) can be good and is less known and if it might be to warm or lower elevations are lacking snow than you could go to Stubaier Glacier.
Lev, if you are travelling solo just leave it to last minute. Book a cheap flight to Zurich. From Zurich you are able to access pretty much anywhere in the alps quickly by train. So essentially you can leave booking accomodation 2-3 days before you fly. Just keep following WP to pinpoint where you should head. Alternatively hire a car in ZH and just follow the storms.
