Was planning to go to the Gathering, but was offered the oportunity to ski St. Anton instead. Checked the snow report...500+ cm at the base. OK! Just amazing. Mostly challenging off piste skiing. You wear avalanche beacons and shovels at all times (and needed, too; saw several avalanches during the trip. Two hundred km of skiing and you just can't do avalanche control in an area that big). Hired a guide who knew all the places with the best skiing. If you like off piste and you can only go to Europe once, go here!
