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.

@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!
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

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!
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

OMG, the first time that I log in for months and I see this - how sad. I only met Sue a couple of times but I have to say that she was good company, on and off the slopes and my condolences go to those closest to her.

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.

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.
You know it makes sense.

@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.

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.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

@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.

@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.
Then you'll get to see more forums.

@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.

@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.

@Samc12, Not sure if this would be of any interest but I am in Ski Amade in Austria for the season and could offer you accommodation and a bit of company on the slopes. I am a little older than you (let's try old enough to be your (grand)father) so this might not be quite what you are looking for. Feel free to send me a PM if you want to discuss further - no offence if you want to look elsewhere.

I've driven to my place in Austria quite a few times now and the only problems that I've encountered have been in the final 100 metres or so - i.e. the driveway up to my house which does not get ploughed as often as the access roads. I am very fortunate that my trip is almost entirely motorway and I exit the A10 at Eben and have maybe 8 kilometres of normal road to deal with before I get to the house. But that last little bit up the drive has been my undoing on several occasions and each time I fail to make it to the top I am then faced with some slippy-slidey reversing to get back down to the road.

@noggy, Sorry to hear about your injury, that must be very frustrating for you. After suffering knee pain for quite some time I was diagnosed with a tear in the meniscus and the specialist I saw recommended surgery to 'clear out the cr@p' as he put it. I had the procedure carried out in October 2013 and the surgeon guaranteed that I'd be fit for my planned ski trip in Jan the next year. He was as good as his word and I skied happily with no issues, until I fell and broke my wrist but that's another story. I've had no trouble since so I guess that my problem was rather minor but anyway fingers crossed that the scan doesn't show anything too serious and that you'll soon be back in action.

Now that the snow has stopped I ventured out today and had a morning's skiing in Flachauwinkel. As I drew into the car park I noticed 6 or 8 white transit vans with GB plates and once I reached the Klienarl side I spotted the content - a large quantity of British snowboarders all wearing numbered vests (not sure what the collective noun is for a group of boarders - a bevy, a flock? - but I'm sure that someone can enlighten me). The side of one run had been set up for a slalom and there were perhaps 40 boarders all sideslipping down, presumably memorising the gate positions. Is there such a shortage of boarders in Austria that they now have to import them by the vanload?

What does concern me though is how the hell Kooky got that old photo of me! It was one helluva après ski night though.
