@Pruman, thank you. Sounds typical spring conditions then. Tuesday weather is looking wet up to 2000.... I think I am stuck on Penken etc for first few days so hope it's not too busy / cut up certainly doesn't look like it will freeze overnight for a few days at least.

Is anyone out in Mayrhofen this week? Would be great to hear how the pistes are holding up with the rain.

This was taken at the end of May last year. "Facilities" had just opened at the beginning of the season. During the season you ski just on the other side of the window.

Mayrhofen on snowforecast is looking pretty horrible Friday/Saturday now. Heavy rain at altitude. Really hope they have got that wrong. :roll:

@marcs44, we stayed at the Edelweiss & Gurgl apartments from the 10th April for one week last year. Think the apartments are called Gletscher Blick. Really nice apartments, very modern and great location. Resort was very empty (second to last week), in fact a few hotels were already closed. Only problem with the apartments is that to use the hotel pool you have to pay each time which we thought was a bit of a rip off but to be honest we would use the apartments again they were so nice. Ski school is just over the road 20m and boot room at hotel very convenient. Hotel seemed nice, mainly English. But as I didn't stay there I cannot comment on the rooms. We prefer apartments with the kids. Easy easy runs. Lots of cruising on easy blues and reds. Blacks are like reds. Great place for kids. Oh and snow was good given how late in the season it was.

Hintertux is supposed to be open too. I will be there in May and will probably ski a couple of days, weather permitting. My youngest is 5 so will get her lessons but she can ski blues already. Rest of the time we will explore the valley and region. I have skied early season at Solden with my kids (youngest was 3 at that time) and just arranged private lessons in the morning. It just meant short ski days and pool/other activity in the afternoon. :) I think you just have to change your perspective with the kids (especially when it's out of season) and think it's a ski plus other activities and be happy with that. Your 3 year old probably wo t be able to ski for more than a couple of hours anyway.

@enduroaid, I was watching the cameras, seeing the trees full of snow and thought it looked great. Goes to show how much the cams can fool.

Thinking of buying either POC or Forecefield body armour. Does anyone have any experience of the full vest options (chest, back, shoulders, elbows) please? Wondered if it fits under jacket, level of protection, too hot etc. Advice welcome!

@Bizziegoblin, I switched late teens. Can he skateboard? A few of my mates switched at the same time. Generally the progression to skiing blues is quicker versus boarding. I would say most people spend the first week with bruised backsides when trying to learn to board, as they learn to balance and use the edges correctly. Weight distribution is less forgiving on a board versus early days of learning to ski. However understanding the edges is half the problem and having skied your son would probably pick it up quicker compared to someone who has no experience of snowsports. If he can skate or surf it will also give a good head start. Why not let him try a new experience? :D :D :D :D

@johnE, certainly not this. I had a traditional wire to hold the joint together (stays permanently) and a pin (think it's called k wire or something) inserted into the shoulder st 90 degrees to provide stability.

@johnE, very interesting. I am given all clear to ski after three months but no snowboarding or mountain biking for 12 months....surgeon is a skier so may be biased :), he says rugby players normally return after 4-5 months. But perhaps speed and chance of high speed impact worse for boarders...(?) not sure I believe that. I had the op in Austria and they inserted a pin which restricted movement. The uk surgeon I am seeing on my return said he wouldn't have inserted the pin as it may increase the likeliness of frozen shoulder. After 7 weeks I have maybe 70% movement but little strength. Physio is making me crawl around on hands and knees like a baby to gain strength. My kids fall over laughing :D Back to Mayrhofen at end of March on skis this time and not my board... :roll:

@DanFuller, for grade 4 it's 6 weeks in a sling night and day (yes 24 hours), then 3 months min physio (probably longer). That's after having the wire inserted.
