My personal experience of Ski Amade is that in general there are very few Brits, lots of Germans and Dutch, Austrians (of course) and in recent years an increasing number of visitors from places such as Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia and Slovakia. I base this on the voices that I hear around me and the registration plates of the cars that I see in ski area car parks. Having said that I have on more than one occasion seen lots of white transit-type vans with UK plates in Flachauwinkl that have transported a tsunami of British snowboarders to the area.

I am based in Ski Amade but am hoping to make a few day trips to S-H over the next few weeks so was wondering if anyone could offer some suggestions regarding easy-to-find lift stations with free parking?

Did a snowshoe walk this afternoon and soon discovered that the snow in these parts is pretty damn deep! https://silverskier.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/now-that-is-pretty-deep.jpg

@nobrainbcn, I'm no expert on the ski buses in this area as I use my car but Altenmarkt/Radstadt might be OK. You have the small ski area there and can bus to Zauchensee which also opens up Flachauwinkl. Pretty sure you can also get a bus to Flachau which means you can ski Wagrain as well. Not sure about getting to Schladming from there by bus but there is a train service. Another option might be to look at Bad Gastein as you could also reach Bad Hofgastein and Dorfgastein/Grosarl from there.
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

@EdYarker, there is a shuttle bus that runs between Zauchensee and Flachauwinkl which only takes a few minutes so the two areas are effectively linked.

@holidayloverxx, Great - do you have a time in mind? And just to check, Highport is the area just off the autobahn, right? @Scarpa, Do you want me to pick you up on the way?
You know it makes sense.

@queen bodecia, yeah I found that there were two races going on, the one you were at and another one on the way down to the two-man Mooslehenbahn (spelling???) chair. Zauch sounds good so do let me know if the plan comes off.

@queen bodecia, sorry I missed you in Filzmoos on Sunday. I did have a good look for you when I was skiing but as I didn't really know what colour ski gear to look for I was at a bit of a disadvantage! Maybe PM me next time so I don't miss the post as we seem to be fated to keep missing each other. @Scarpa, sorry to hear that you have been ill but let me know when you get back on skis and you can ease your way back by following me around for a couple of hours :D

@holidayloverxx, yes it was. Every time I went in there I thought that the old boy looked more and more ill so perhaps they have finally retired.

@carled, if you have decided on getting a car then you could consider taking Kooky's apartment and skiing in Zauchensee/Flachauwinkl as that area is pretty close to Altenmarkt. Zauch to Kleinarl and back is a pretty decent trip that you could do in a morning with an early start and still get back in time to meet your daughter for lunch. Might not float your boat but could be worth a look.

So I skied at Rierteralm this morning and the snow was so soft that it was more like an afternoon in March than a morning in January - bloody climate change! Anyway, I planned an early coffee stop at the Panorama Alm but when I arrived at the bottom of the Sepp'n Jet there was no Alm :( It could be that I am losing my mind and that said Alm is located somewhere entirely different but I'm pretty sure that's where it used to be. Can any of the Ski Amade locals put me out of my confusion?

@queen bodecia, many apologies but I didn't spot your post until this morning so missed out. Hope you both had a good day. We ended up pottering around Filzmoos for the morning but the mini-melt meant that the snow was very soft - hope it gets a bit colder soon.

@peter w, look forward to seeing you folks and maybe joining you for a day's skiing. @queen bodecia, be great if you could ski with us sometime over the next week before Heather goes back to the UK - let mw know if you fancy it. Had a scoot round Zauchensee today and discovered that a new lift has been built in Flachauwinkel, the Lumberjack Shuttle no less!

Just arrived in Filzmoos a few hours ago and everything is very very white and getting whiter by the minute! This has got the makings of a great season and I am exceedingly excited. Look forward to catching up with the Ski Amade snowheads on the slopes with perhaps the odd little bit of Apres now and again. Oh, and a quick plug for my blog that has now been brought back to life for the forthcoming season - https://silverskier.wordpress.com. Happy skiing everybody!

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 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.

@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.

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!
