We will be arriving in MdC in afternoon of 27 Feb and hoping to find somewhere to watch the England 6 Nations match. Can anyone recommend a good sports bar that is likely to be showing the rugby ?

Also I forgot to mention the skibus stops right outside in the piazza which is good should you end the day at the bottom of the Spinale instead of the Belvedere or the World Cup run which are both only a few steps away.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Try Hotel Ariston. We fit your profile, stayed there 3 years ago and are returning in Feb 2016. Food was excellent, good value and only a very short walk to the pistes. http://www.aristonarnica.it/lang/EN/homepage

I agree. Strongly recommend you go to Val Gardena and do the Saslong men's downhill - a really fun run.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I have a Pinzolo town map from March 2013 which clearly shows a very large car park at the gondola. The 2012/13 piste map also shows a car park at the Pinzolo gondola.

Anyone know if the little drag lift from the bottom of the belvedere piste will be open in 2015/16 ? This was closed due to some sort of dispute when we went to Madonna a few years ago.

Is it advisable to take a guide to do the Langerzug run back to Lech from the top of the Rufikop cable car ? Am I right in thinking that it is a groomed ski route ?

Go to the snow reports section of the forum and then check the Brenta Dolomites - Madonna topic. Wayne posts to it every week. Have you asked your hotel to arrange transfers - ours did it for us.

Wayne, Will be staying at the Hotel Ariston in Piazza Brenta Alta first week of March. Can you recommend a nearby ski hire shop where we can pre-book our skkiis ? Also do you know if we can leave skis and boots near the lifts overnight and what the charge for doing so is ? Regards Richard
And they're a friendly bunch.

Just back from 3V. Excellent piste skiing even though no snow for over 3 weeks. Two extremes for lunch. A samll place in Mottaret (can't remember the name but at the bottom by the lifts and by the big brown cow) sells large beers for Euro 3.60 versus the Cap Horn in 1850 near the altiport where the same large beer is Euro 14.00 and if you're on for a real blowout the fruits de mer for 2 people is a mere Euro 169 !!! we stopped by Cap Horn and had 5 coffees for Euro 31 - went elsewhere for lunch. Cap Horn is a very impressive upmarket restaurant if that's what you want.
You know it makes sense.

Another vote for Corvara. Try looking at Colletts : http://www.colletts.co.uk/winter/winter_downhill_skiing_italy_dolomites.html Went with them a couple of years ago and found them good value. Tons of cruisy blues and the Corvara ski area away from the Sella Ronda cicuit is not too busy.
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

You might want to consider Suisses from the top of the Vizelle gondola as a "friendly" black esp. after fresh snow and after grooming, and definitely do the Folyeres a blue down to La Tania - a smooth roly poly blue. You can pick up a piste grooming report in La Croisette under the main 3 gondolas at Courchevel 1850 every morning. Without doubt I recommend visiting the Bel Aire restaurant at 1650 for lunch but you have to book as it's very popular - try to get a table on the terrace and go on a sunny day. Enjoy !

Transfers to Lech are much quicker from either Freidrichschafen (about 90 mins to 2 hrs - downside it's Ryanair) or Innsbruck - probably an hour max. worz666, I think you mentioned much earlier that you didn't mind which country. That being so take a look at the Dolomites in Italy, stunning scenery and loads of confidence boosting runs but also some steeper stuff especially in Arabba and the mens downhill on the Saslong piste in Val Gardena, and the GS in Alta Badia. We went to Corvara a couple of years ago with Colletts - very reasonably priced : http://www.colletts.co.uk/winter/

Been to Brides several times in Jan and found it great. It takes 30 mins on the gondola to Meribel. Nice relaxing ride down with great views if weather is good. Brides is very small and quiet with a few good restaurants that are much cheaper than Meribel or Courchevel. We like it for the price you pay. If the snow's good you can ski to a one of the mid stations between Meribel & Brides or if really lucky there's a route all the way down - but never been able to do that ourselves.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Lech is a wonderful resport - been three times. Fly to Zurich with Swiss then get Arlberg Express. Used their coach twice and once their private transfer minibus - with a group of 8 the cost difference is marginal and much more flexible and enable skiing on the last day. Stayed at the Hotel arabella - fantasic food. Last year stayed at Hotel Lech / Chesa Rosa, also very good. The Lech-Zuers website (www.lech-zuers.at) is very good and has a vast selection of properties at all prices - most of which are not on the package list. For Lech we always go DIY. There is a very good ski rental shop right beside the main lift in the centre of town where you can leave skis and boots overnight so you don't need ski in ski out. The ski bus is very good up and down the village. :lol:

AlpineMasters, Thanks for the feedback. Always nice to hear someone's actually used the service to satisfaction. I reckon I'll use them. Cheers.

Has anybody used these guys before ? It seems like a good service and saves the hassle of fighting in the ski rental shop when you're tired after the journey to get there - probably the worst part of a ski holiday ! www.slidecandy.com

Hi Guys, I'm off to Corvara on 22nd Feb. and the tour operator I'm going with offers an off piste day, for which they say no off piste experience is necessary. They state that the trip usually goes down the Val Mesdi, conditions permitting. From all the pics and video clips I've seen, it looks quite a serious run. Do you think it is good intro to off piste skiing or should I look for something a bit easier ?

One other thing I should mention about the restaurants. One of our party is a particularly demanding (fussy ?) Italian and he persuaded two of the five restaurants we used to cook a specific dessert which was not on the menu - no problem for them and really good too. No more expensive than eating in UK - although the exchange rate was £1 = Eur 0.70 then !!!
Then you'll get to see more forums.

We really enjoyed the eating out in Selva. We were a party of 8 (4 couples) and simply asked the hotel to recommend and book us a restaurant each night. They did a fantastic job. We used a small bar at the bottom of the slope next to the hotel for immediate apres ski and the Luisekeller for pre dinner drinks. Another thing about the Dolomie is that we could watch the ski show at night from the balcony of our room !

Anybody stayed at the Hotel Corona in Selva (www.hotel-corona.it)? Given the excellent snow levels we are taking a chance on an Easter break in the Sella Ronda area. This hotel has a good location and availability, but only in their small rooms. I understand it is attached to a bar which has a lively reputation, anyone been in and know whether it is good and what the beer costs? Don't know about the Hotel Corona but have stayed at the Hotel Dolomie and strongly recommend it. Ski-in/out right at the bottom of the Ciampinoi with a small drag lift litteraly 2 steps from the door. Only a few metres from the Luislkeller which we used every night we were there (4 years ago). http://www.dolomie.com
