Ski Amade 2016-2017

@holidayloverxx, Filzmoos seemed very nice. Most of the pistes were gentle, tree lined but fairly short. It was quiet, no queues all day. Our favourite run was down from the Papageno lift.

In good conditions you could ski fast and cover the area in a couple of hours. We took it easy, did lots of repeat runs and spent the whole day there instead of heading to Eben for a couple of hours. We needed to get to the airport so didn't have a wander around the village, but it looked pretty and looked like it had a reasonable range of shops, bars and restaurants.

Ha. Are there many lifts named after characters in Mozart operas? I've never noticed in the bits of Ski Amade I've been to.

So there as there are a MASSIVE amount of snowheads out next week, shall we organise a meal (civilised) a sledging night (lethal) or anything else that takes your fancy?
We are doing a trip to Wagrain on March 5th for a Remembrance Day for Samerburg Sue, if anyone wants to join us for a drink and/or meal please get in touch and we can share the details.

Yesterday I was sitting on the balcony in shorts and a bare top reading in the sun. Today it's a total blizzard out there. Only 3cm forecast but it's shaping up to be a bit more if this carries on. Good job I waxed my fat skis.

@rm1982, Going by the conditions at the moment I wouldn't have thought it'd be a problem. I'll give an update after next week. Very Happy I'm out there again on the 25th for a week.

@rm1982, Which resort? North facing is best at that time. It will be full blown spring in the valley.

We will definitely have snow here in Zauchensee/Schladming and Obertauern. I have skied every year since 2006 right up until May.
Chill out, it will be fine Madeye-Smiley

Surprised at that. Perhaps places will be closing down.

Resorts are near empty in late March. I've more than once skied from top to bottom without seeing a single other person. Piste conditions usually way better than Christmas as well. What's not to like.

@snowheads68, as far as I can see most places are shutting after Easter, but maybe its all booked out as it is Easter?
Anyway, there will be awesome snow@rm1982, maybe we can get a ski in with you Madeye-Smiley


We skied over Zauchensee/FlachyWinkl, surprisingly quiet and lovely pistes, although the temps were quite high the snow was holding up great! Off to Annaberg tomorrow if anyone fancies joining us.

All the other resorts are either sold out or accommodation for 10 nights is £2-5k which is rediculous!.

The home runs are NE. May get the sun early so good to do first thing.

There's a N facing bowl at the top and a lovely long N facing red down to a gondola.

The other runs face W towards Wagrain. There's a link now (G-string) to Alpendorf which has two N facing bowls which always keep snow well.

I think Flachau is one of the very best resorts I've been to (over 150) for beginners / timid intermediates. Some lovely wide easy runs which are right at the top as well.

@rm1982, just to put your mind at rest, I see the farmers actually going in and breaking the pistes at the end of each season. They go and and literally dig up the pistes, it breaks my heart.

There will be good snow on Flachau and I will be touring there probably until the end of May.

Hi all, last minute this weekend, cheap accommodation for two needed ideally studio, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th. Anything considered up to £75 per night.

Cheers

@Beep, do you need to be in a resort or will you have a car and drive in - cheapest way and more likely to get something

@Beep, good luck with that!
The area is pretty much packed out over this weekend as it is the last weekend of the holiday season.
I've been getting loads of enquiries every day for exactly those dates Sad
I'd look at staying a little out of the area (so between Salzburg and Werfen) or Bischofshofen or Grossarl etc.. etc.. to try to secure them.
I'm not saying you won't find anything but it may be worth expanding your search.


P.S - I think 750 meters should be enough to cover the higher resorts category Toofy Grin Toofy Grin

Arrived in Gastein valley yesterday, had to check it was still Feb... looked more like the end of March. Must have been good to someone though because overnight it dumped maybe a foot. Conditions obviously great today. Hopefully stays that way for a few more days.

@kooky - notice you mentioned Annaberg in a recent post. What were conditions like compared with Zauchensee ? We were thinking of heading to Annaberg today but were a bit put off that they didn't seem to get much snow in last nights dumping according to nearby weather station reports and webcams. Like you, we found conditions in Zauch pretty good on Monday

@hairy123, the pistes are lovely! Annaberg/Dachstein West is my favourite place to ski, in fact although I live in Altenmarkt I haven´t skied there in 2 years, but done Annaberg about 12 times Madeye-Smiley

In comparison to Zauchensee?
The snow is just as good, all lifts are open. There are a few annoying t bars to connect you to Russbach that you may have to wait a few minutes on, but the skiing is totally fabulous and the scenery cant be beaten. Pop over there I can promise you it is well worth the trip Smile

We ventured over to Saalbach today, always a great day but skiing Wagrain tomorrow, I think there are about 20 or so assorted :sH:heads so if anyone wants to join us pop on by. Pretty sure we will end up in the Dampfkessel for about 3pm
