Has anyone been to this resort who would kindly give me a run down of the Pro's and Con's?

Thank you in anticipation.

Obviously A snowHead isn't a real person
Pros: pretty much no English and Dutch "skiers", so I can really ski without someone annoying me Wink And yes, that huge plus for me Smile Normally really good conditions, even though they don't open as first ones in Austria. Almost no blue runs (this can for some go also under cons). Relatively big resort with pretty good (quite new) lifts, and in December, January and March perfect place for GS/SG skis Wink
Cons (at least for some): basically no apres ski, and certainly nothing after 5pm, unless you make it yourself in your own apartment. A bit remote, even though it's not all that far from Klagenfurt, Ljubljana or Trieste.

There's Apres ski in the Cube, although best suited to younger groups who want to party ...

Here's my big trip report on Nassfeld with some photos which you may find helpful. I went in 2009, so there might be some new lifts since then. EDIT: apparently not in fact! So you're stuck with the annoying T-bar to get back to the 80 Carnia, boooo.

HoneyBunny, if I remember right, just one for now Smile I don't really remember year, but one t-bar (now chairlift is Mossern-Bahn Warm up, but forgot what T-Bar is called, but it goes from Rudnigsattel t-bars up to end station of Millennium express) was replaced by chairlift in last few years. No idea if Warmup was don't before 2009 or after 2009, but if it was before, then there's no new lifts since then. They started to work on new chairlift replacing old Rudnigsattel t-bar lifts this summer, but chairlift should be ready for next season not for this one. So at least for year, we are stuck with Rudnigsattel t-bars.

Warm Up was there when we went in Jan 2009, I can't believe they've not replaced that T-bar to take you back to the 80 Carnia yet. Horrible lift.

I assumed there would have been some investment in the past 5 years!

I am frequent visitor of Nassfeld Ski Area. Regarding T-bars. I think they replaced all of them. This year they constructed new Rudnigsattel 6-seater chairlift – replaces the two T-lifts Rudnigsattel Lift I + II with seat heating, weather protective cover, child safety lock. In previous years (from 2009 Smile they also replaced T-bar at Warm-up ski piste.

I think there are only few t-bar lifts left and all of them are located on beginners slopes.

Yeah there are just a couple of short easy ones close to the Italian border. New heated chair lifts are great!

Nassfeld is one of those resorts that sometimes sees a large dump of fresh snow even when other resorts see very little snow but it's very hard to get the timing right. The day before I visted Nassfeld the offpiste was green, I checked the weather reports one day before and booked just a few hours before jumping in the car and driving 4.5 hrs down from Vienna. A day or two either way and fresh powder tracks would not have been possible.

Yes 1st March after the big 50cm dump, it snowed again the following weekend but I had to drive back on the friday. You must have been on the very first lifts as I went down there around 10 am, were you alone or in a group? If you look very closely at the church you will see the kids yellow slide behind it (It's a kids slide in the form of a tower) - yes I'm that gnarly that I skied past the kids area and thought that it would make a good photo. snowHead I was skiing some powder at the side of the piste and it caught my eye.

Yeah I was there really early Smile It gets tracked really fast, especially when everyone around there have school holidays and it's really full. So in cases like this, I rather wake up a bit earlier and be on first lift Smile Otherwise I was alone. I live about 1h drive away (depending how fast you drive, so it can be also 1.5h) and when I saw weather report like that, I just decided to jump and go. But I rather stayed on a bit easier slopes and avoided fun part on other side of the hill near Trogkofelbahn gondola, as avi situation was everything but good that day (which proved pretty extensive search action under Trogkofelbahn gondola hour or two later).
For church I know it's not real one, but I still can't place it anywhere. It somehow looks like close to top of Warmup lift, but I'm skiing that part quite a lot and still don't remember it. And yes it makes good photo Very Happy
For weekend I was on WC races in Kranjska Gora, so no skiing for me that weekend. But if you will be around next time, let me know beforehand Smile

Only skied Nassfeld once before around 10 years ago so don't know it that well, plus I was skiing alone so spent most of the time skiing off the Rudnigsattelbahn.

Tried the offpiste on the other side (Garnitzen II?) later in the day it was heavy, one run of jump turns and I was out of there.

From memory I think the church is just off run 63 below the Kofel centre, on your left as you ski down looks like thats the reservoir behind it.

Thanks for the offer will be sure to drop you a message next time I head down there again, likewise if you are ever up here in Vienna and have time for a beer let me know.

Warmup lift is the one take you up to Kofel center and looking lift up, 63 is on right side. So I guessed area where it was set, but honestly I have no recollection I would ever see it Very Happy
I was first mostly under Rudnigsattelbahn, then made few runs around Trogkofelbanh (gondola on right of Rudnigsattelbahn if looking up the lift) and then moved for few runs on Gartnerkofel and FIS chairlift. It was great for few runs, but snow got really heavy fast as it's south facing slope. But fun part is one nice bowl behind hill just under the top of Trogkofelbanh gondola. But in my opinion it was way too sketchy that day to try there, even though I saw quite few guys going in that direction. But that bowl is pretty steep and with that weak layer of graupel just under fresh powder, it was pretty much guaranteed to slide.
Will let you know when I'm in Wien next time Smile
