Great report, many thanks. We got the All Star Pass when we stayed in Kitzbuel first week of February and got over to westendotf and ski welt. Conditions generally excellent. I too particularly liked the look of Westendorf which we accessed from the Ki-West gondola having skied over from Kitzbuel. We loved the long red down to Brixen. Ski Welt felt much more crowded than either Kitz or Westendorf but that may be because we didn't really have time venture far away from the main areas. I loved the blacks off hohe salve. We caught the train back to Kitz from Hopfgarten which was included in the All Star pass. Thinking of maybe using westendorf as the base next year and exploring ski welt further.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Agree. The lift system is over reliant on a few key lifts that produce massive queues and too many old, slow and antiquated lifts, not a single bubble to offer weather protection and uninterested lift attendants. Last Friday took a 30 minute wait to get on gondola out of samoens, another 25 to get up to tete des saix and a further 20 minute wait for flaine link, just unacceptable.Add to this pistes that get horribly busy and churned. Agree that flaine much better for both. This was our first visit to Grand massif but we will go elsewhere in future years, probably Austria where fast modern lifts are the norm not the exception and living costs about half those in France ski resorts.

Skied there last year 2nd week in march - best conditions of the season, everything open down to valley floor.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Spent last week in Selva and skied Arabba on Tuesday. The slopes are in good nick and the blacks on the north slopes above Arabba skiing very well, quite hard but not icy. However, high winds on Thursday have caused some ice on exposed slopes in Selva and Corvara so may have in Arabba also. But considering the lack of any natural snow cover the on piste conditions are remarkably good.

Skied in Selva, Corvara, San Cassiano and Alpe di Suisi the past couple of days. Entirely man made but amazing piste coverage and quality. Everything is open and the weather is wonderful.

@waynos, @Kooky, thanks for your views. Sounds like it will be better staying in Schladming, avoiding travel on that day and enjoying the atmosphere !!

Arriving on the 23rd for our first trip to Schladming. re the night race, do regulars recommend skiing elsewhere in ski amade on race day or will Schladming be ok apart from the Planai piste used for the race ?

We spent a wonderful 10 days in Alpbach last September. I think two gondolas open and free with a complimentary Alpbachtal Seenland Card. Loads of different graded walks in the most fantastic scenery and perfect village. We stayed in the Boeglerhof which was fab. Thoroughly recommend and may see you there cos we're going back!
And they're a friendly bunch.

Hi, on a hiking break in Alpbachtal and decided to drive round to sample Hintertux glacier yesterday - attracted by the website claiming 20cm of new snow on Monday and fantastic cool, sunny weather. Must say pleasantly surprised both by extent of area available and the snow conditions. The Kaserer 1 drag was opened today and apart from some "glacial" bits toward the bottom was pretty good, quite hard throughout the day. The sunny Olperer slopes softened in the afternoon but still very enjoyable. Lots of race training going on - the Russians and Croation teams in evidence. 600m vertical and 24 km of slopes, a good day out!!

Hi, we stayed in Warth last March and had a fantastic week; the local skiing is very good and offers more than the piste map and stats suggest. Easy to link into Lech/Zurs and we experienced no issues with the link lift that others have reported. To ski St Anton is feasible but you'd only get maybe three hours in before needing to head back. We drove out and took in a day at Mellau/Damuls on the way to Warth which is well worth a couple of days at least. Shame that the Bregenzerwald 3 valleys pass doesn't cover Lech; staying in Warth you need to choose one or the other. If you want to try the 3 valleys pass then Warth isn't the ideal place to stay, but for Lech & Zurs it's great.

Conditions still surprisingly good considering high temps. Very hard in mornings becoming soft/slushy on south facing slopes in afternoons. a few worn bits appearing on busier exposed slopes. Michaud 2 in well positioned for main lifts and seemed to offer good service to a friend last week.

Hi, some advice on the best route to Les Gets would be much appreciated. Travelling on Saturday 4th January and will be arriving in Les Gets early afternoon. Weather forecast is for rain maybe snow. I had assumed I would drive into Les Gets via Cluses - Taninges but wondering whether the lakeside route via Thonon les Bains - Morzine would be better from a traffic and snow point of view ? Any help from regulars welcomed, thanks.

Try DaleBoots for ease of getting boots on and off; much more flex than conventional boots.

Serfaus and Fiss (linked) in Austria offer a good combination of tree lined and open; both villages around 1400m.

I had a similar experience of pain in many different ski boots including a very expensive Surefoot experience that was completely unsuccessful, despite numerous return visits. After an agonising new year holiday I had pretty much decided to pack it all in but after an internet search I went to see Colin at Solutions 4 Feet. He instantly diagnosed severe lack of ankle flexation as the problem, honestly told me me he didnt want to be the latest guy to sell me boots that wouldn't work and referred me to James at Outdoor Traders - Dale Boots, with their custom shells, being the only apparent solution. Went through the same process as Mally's wife with James and took the new boots to Lech in March: the result was transformational, fantastic comfort. Would thouroughly recommend Colin from Solution 4 Feet, Outdoor Traders, Dale Boots and James for skiers with problems. Between them they solved mine and I'm incredibly appreciative.

Arrived in Lech on sat 24th. Earlier advice still prevails, stay on north facing slopes in Zurs and Stuben and the skiing is wonderful, the sunny slopes get very heavy above Lech get very heavy and to be avoided. Weather stunning and forecast to remain so all week - happy days :D

charlier, I have stayed at a B&B place called the Alfa which is centrally located and only a couple of minutes from Sunnega, and opposite the bus stop. Really nice to place to stay and very friendly oweners, relatively inexpensive, most rooms face south with great views of the Matt. It is linked to the 4 star metrpole next door where you have access to their spa and where you would take evening meals if you book half board. BUt, I would imagine that only the Matterhorn section will be open on the dates of your visit so unless you dont mind catching the busses or paying for taxis you may be better looking for somewhere to stay at that end of town.

You need a Swiss transfer ticket from Swiss Travel Centre - stc.co.uk - this qualifies you for a return journey anywhere in Switzerland and laasts for a month. Kids under 15 travel free. Adult cost is £90 for standard class.

Stayed in Hinterglemm over New year and used the Gumpold, only 100 yards from the Pinzgauerhof, very pleased with quality of the ski hire for my daughter (Volkl Estrellas for £100/week).
