Ski Amade

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi All - I am a regular skier and have been to most of the major resorts / areas. We are looking for something slightly different next year, and are thinking of going to Ski Amade area. I was wondering if any one can give me a review. We are 8 men, all been skiing for 25 plus years. Our requirement are a good varied ski area, we still like to acres with the best of them but probably not for so long these days or every night. If we do Ski Amade were would be the best place to stay and any advice would be appreciated. Cheers Very Happy

There are several ski amade regulars on here who I'm sure will be along soon to give you the best advice.

I stayed in Wagrain near to the Flying Mozart gondola. Bit of a trek on foot to the village centre but we were near to the excellent apres bar Kuhstall, so didn't need to venture into the village often. From Wagrain you can ski over to the Alpendorf area via the Grafenburg gondola. Or via the Flying Mozart gondola, ski over to Flachau and then connect via skibus (I think) to Flachauwinkl. From there you can ski over to Zauchensee one way and Kleinarl the other. You also have the smaller area of Altenmarkt nearby though you would have to access via bus, taxi or car.

Flachau itself could be another good central base and has several restaurants, bars and apres venues. Accomodation here can be found in the main village or at the Achterjet gondola station area.

If you have cars then the most central bases are Radstadt/Altenmarkt/Eben. But if not then somewhere in Flachau/Wagrain/Alpendorf or the Schladming valley would give you access to the largest lift-linked areas. Other options are Bad Hofgastein to be central to the Gasteins (but quite a trek from anywhere else) or HochkŲnig. With cars you can visit them all in a week, you'd be spoilt for choice!

I stayed with two lovely Snowheads a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. Thankfully Scarpa was happy to drive to a different place each day but Iíd say a car is definitely worth the money. Most places have free parking and itís a good way to ski a wider area.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I pretty much agree with what @queenie pretty please says. If I didnít have a car Iíd probably stay in Flachau/Wagrain or Schladming. These give direct access to the most skiing. If you decide not to have a car make sure you use the ski bus to get to Flachauwinkl/Kleinarl/Zauchensee from Flachau/Wagrain and/or Fageralm from Schladming.

If do have a car fill your boots and visit everywhere!

Gastein valley well worth considering. Huge area of skiing, massive selection of accommodation and very accessible from Salzburg. Alternatively flights to Munich with slightly longer transfers.

Iíve done a couple of weeks in previous years plus a long weekend with a few Snowheads around Radstadt and Altenmarkt. Last season I did four weeks out there and drove out and made quite good use of the Salzburg Superski pass. Iíve always thought that a car is invaluable and wouldnít consider being without one, but do accept that itís possible to use the buses if based in the right resort. Itís a great area and Iíd agree with @queenie pretty pleaseís summing up. I might even be around next season to meet up if you decide to go there. Madeye-Smiley

What about Saalbach, its such a huge area and enough to keep you busy there easily for a week if you dont have a car, otherwise what everyone else has said really, base yourself somewhere like Altenmarkt/Radstadt/Schladming and just change resorts daily to follow the weather!
