Went to Zauchensee for opening day and got a few hours in before it got too busy. By the time we left the car parks were rammed and there were cars queuing all the way through the village. The snow was falling as we left for the airport on Sunday morning so hoping that we get a good base down before we come back at New Year.

I should be out for the whole of January so be happy to meet up if you have time in your January visit and maybe join Scarpa's mini bash.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I haven't stopped at Golling but the Eben station should have milk, bread/rolls, butter and the like so you should be able to get some breakfast basics there.

@queen bodecia, be great to see you again. We will be travelling back either Tuesday or Wednesday next week so let's see if we can organise a quick ski before we head off.

@peter w, @RobinS, I think that Kooky is referring to the Trinkeralm at Fageralm. I have never tried the ribs myself but they are reputed to be most excellent!

@RobinS, Fageralm is a great little ski area made all the better by the limited lift system that serves to keep the masses at bay, even in the busiest times of the season. But that's our little secret so don't go telling everybody about it!

I have skied the Konigstour quite a few times and the run that @3offthetee refers to is indeed the trickiest part of the circuit but in the current low temperatures I think that it will be quite manageable.
And post your own questions...

@Kooky, Looks like you guys are having a blast in the new snow. We just got back from a morning in Reiteralm - great skiing but boy was it cold. My feet are still thawing out!

My personal preference is option 2 although I would agree with the comment regarding the speed of some drivers on the autobahns. I tend to plump for an overnight drive so it is generally a bit quieter. I always fuel up in Luxembourg and was delighted to pay just €1.03 a litre for diesel last week.

I concur that there is much snow to enjoy and me and the Missus had a good morning's skiing in Wagrain although be warned, it's rather chilly up top - minus 18 according to the digital display at the top of the Red 8 Gondola!
You know it makes sense.

From memory then this winter my roofbox contained 14 boxes of dog food pouches, one pair of skis and poles, several board games, a carrier bag full of veg, a ski jacket, a mop, a roll of Xmas wrapping paper and two large boxes of Bonio dog biscuits.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

According to the spreadsheet that I kept then over the entire course of last season I averaged 3420 vertical meters a day as measured by my Ski Tracks app and 4156 a day according to the Skyline website. I should say that I only skied in the mornings as my afternoons were put aside for dog walking so I guess that distance could be doubled for a full day.

@Samerberg Sue, sorry to say that a lot of the idiots are still there! We got there a bit later than we would have preferred so missed the quietest part of the day and called it quits around 12.30. The skiing itself was not too bad apart from a few of the moguls that flangesax mentioned above. How much longer are you here for? Hopefully was can have a quick meet up before the end of your trip. We are thinking of getting to Reiteralm for first lifts tomorrow and maybe doing the Konigstour the day after.

@Samerberg Sue, we haven't skied Filzmoos yet so I can't give you a personal view but I do know that the Neuberg side is closed and the only lifts in operation are the 4-man chair and the Papageno gondola so I think that the skiing limited. Just got back from Zuachensee and it was pretty busy but I guess that's par for the course this week.
And they're a friendly bunch.

Hello Ski Amade Snowheads! Just arrived in Neuberg yesterday morning and I am getting settled in for the season. Mrs B and I will be hitting the slopes this morning, assuming that her red wine hangover is manageable, so hope to catch up with a few of you over the course of the winter.
You know it makes sense.

@hammerite, Hi and thanks too for the suggestion ... just looking at the Wagrain piste map and not seeing many blues - is it okay for a beginner and could you ski back to the resort on a gentle run do you know? The red run down to the Graffenberg is fairly wide but a little steep in places so it should be OK if the beginner in question can make some basic turns. I am always reluctant to make sweeping statements with regard to questions like this as some beginners are a lot more confident than others and as we know so much of skiing takes place between the ears. With regard to snow cover then if it is not great in Filzmoos at Christmas time then it will be similar in Wagrain and indeed in much of the Ski Amade area, at least in my experience.
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

@Samerberg Sue, Hi Sue, nice to hear from you. The shoulder is doing OK thanks, still a little stiff now and again but more or less back to normal. I'll be arriving on Dec 28 so we should definitely get together. Will Claire be joining you this trip?

@tortor, I might be the Snowhead that Sue has mentioned as I spend the winter in the Filzmoos area and it would certainly seem to meet all of your criteria. Christmas snow is likely but not guaranteed - last season we didn't really get any decent snow until the first few days in January. The main nursery slope is right in the village centre with another beginners area a little further away. There are three ski schools, two right in the heart of the village and the 3rd located at the other nursery slope. The shopping is a little limited but there is a wide range of hotels and eating places as well as a leisure centre and there is quite a bit to do for non-skiers. Filzmoos is around 45 minutes from Salzburg airport by car and personally I would recommend renting a car as it gives you freedom to get out and about and enjoy other ski resorts and towns/villages.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

@waitrose, You could take a look at the Happy Alm in Filzmoos. They have a very popular après from 15.30 - 18.00 (prompt) and will serve dinner as soon as the après is finished.

@Kooky, just one small correction - I was carving more like Marcel Marceau than Marcel Hirscher but that apart can't fault your analysis. Thanks again for a smashing day.

@Bob, Thanks for the link. I checked my own info using skiline and it shows a very different set of numbers from Ski Tracks with regard to vertical drop. Given that skiline is linked to my lift pass then I assume that it is more accurate but the difference is very significant indeed although the degree of variation does vary quite a lot resort to resort.
