Meierhoftäli is my favourite run for really getting a carving edge and letting rip. It doesn't appear to have been open yet this season though and had hardly any snow at Xmas this year :cry: Gruobenalp is an easy area but the snow here is often poor/icy as it is south facing. If you are staying at the Intercontinental there is absolutely not point in going to Klosters to access the Parsenn area via the cable car as it would be much easier to go straight up the Parsenn funicular to get to Gruobenalp. Only reason to go to Klosters is to access Madrisa - which would be worth a trip in my opinion (snow cover permitting)

I had Plantar fasciitis for around 18 months and don't recall much problem skiing, probably because I have custom made footbeds in my ski boots. The problem only went when I started wearing orthotics in my normal shoes. Badminton will probably be worse for it than skiing.
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

Just to add, not sure about lockers but the Jakobshorn area is right next to Davos Platz train station.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Some of the smaller areas may be best, Pischa, Rinerhorn and Madrisa. Problem is they are mainly T bars. Pischa is the nearest to your hotel. Also, they haven't had much snow so far so would depend on the conditions when you go. Otherwise I would go to Jakobshorn which has a range of blue and red runs plus chairlifts.

Yep and if you leave them in your gloves overnight it helps dry them out for the next day (that's having used them all day, not new ones)
Then you'll get to see more forums.

Yep, come back down from Parsenn by funicular. It's usually more pleasant than skiing down anyway, plus you can have a few apres ski drinks at the mid station before the ride down. Good pizzas there too. Jakobshorn is probably a better bet for the young one as stated above.
And post your own questions...

I would make sure your accommodation has a kitchen, otherwise it could get very expensive eating out every night. The hotels don't tend to do half board, or even B and B in many. A condo might be a better option and the complexes usually have the spa / pool you want. I would suggest Vail or Park City but these are expensive options. We usually buy a Vail season pass for a 2 week trip but I am not sure they can be used at Christmas/New year.
which other snowHeads love to answer.

Look out for this book https://www.amazon.com/Powder-Hounds-Guide-Snowbird/dp/0980131812 and also the one for Alta. If there is powder, just stay in Little Cottonwood Canyon and explore. The book was for sale in the gift/tee shirt shop inside the Snowbird Centre and is well worth having. For a lazy Sunday head to Sundance for a morning ski and brunch. Very pretty spot. Agree with the Red Iguana suggestion too, a great place to eat in SLC but gets very busy so arrive, give them your name then sit outside with lots of others and wait. They do have heaters outside so not too cold. Also try the Beerhive pub in SLC.

I loved the lifts at St Anton where red and green lights indicate bar down / bar up and one lift even has an automatic bar which opens at the last moment. I can hear the Yanks screaming in horror that they can't open it half way up.

Parking at the entrance to Zurs is free apparently but not the case in Lech.
