Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

I'd recommend Alpe-d-Huez. Went this year early March conditions were great. I'd read that it can get quite slushy around resort level (1800) by end of March but i think thats pretty much like anywhere. Not many tree runs but views quite good especially at summit. Massive begginer area from about 2100 down to resort level and some challenging reds and blacks. Prices probably similar to Les Arcs.
Obviously A snowHead isn't a real person

Kind of hijacking this thread, but since the OP has chosen Hinterglemm, thought I'd add that I'll be travelling to Fieberbrunn next February (1st week before the school hols). Thank you @tatmanstours for sending your info through few weeks back. Chosen Fieberbrunn in the end due to cheaper accom option in a Pension and it has supposedly great freeriding, just hoping for some powder that week! Also direct train from Salzburg to the town looks like a good value option. Does anybody know of decent apres in Fieberbrunn , I know its the quiet part of Ski circus, but are there any recommendations? On the mountain also? I know there are plenty on Saalbach side of resort but think there would only be enough time for one beer before the link to Fieberbrunn closed. :lol:
Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name.

I've not taken a train to resort before, how are they for taking snowboard bags onboard?

This is what I see on oebb website for early December, train fares wouldn't rise for February surely? My Basket SAT, 1. DEC 2018 12:18 15:01 Zürich Flughafen St.Anton am Arlberg Bahnhof Who is going? 1 × adult One-way journey € 22,00 Price valid for 6 minutes. SAT, 8. DEC 2018 12:57 15:42 St.Anton am Arlberg Bahnhof Zürich Flughafen Who is going? 1 × adult One-way journey € 29,00 Price valid for 9 minutes. Total amount € 51,00
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

The accommodation is pp split between 2. @under a new name, yes i know, maybe i'm wrong, but if you go on and select zurich airport to st. Anton for last week of november those are the prices(cant search past this point currently). Would prices increase in winter months?

@Whitegold, My question wasn't deluded, just trying to find value for money for what we want to do. And guess what St. Anton seems to be cheapest so far, which seems really odd. Firstly i was looking for air bnb accommodation as I used it last year and assumed it would be cheapest way. Turns out accommodation on tourist website is way cheaper :~/. How does this sound... Self catered acc £225 7nights (one downside 10 min walk into town, if that's what it takes :D) Skipass £260 Love the direct train seems as though it would cost around £40 return from zurich (this sound correct)? Flight with BA for £125 inc snowboard bag So around 650 not bad... @Mike Pow, tiny wet flakes :~/ @Tom Doc, haven't been austria before so looking most likely for this trip. But would definitely consider this season after and especially travelling alone instead a ucpa @T Bar, you were right about tourist acc, cheers does vary a lot as you say
After all it is free Go on u know u want to!

Thank you for all the replies, they help a lot. @spyderjon, That's really cool, would definitely consider something like that with a bit more experience. @tatmanstours, I've sent you a pm with address , would like the info you have thank you very much. @NickyJ, Didn't know you snowheads organised these sort of things, would gressoney be the base next season too?
Then you'll get to see more forums.

Hi, wondering if you :sH: can help me... I've been recently looking for a resort for next February (prob end of feb/march) but can't decide on which to go for. Problem has been looking on the net and getting conflicting info on resorts I've looked at. Only two of us going next year and trying to find cheap accommodation is difficult (air bnb seems best), we are intermediates with limited off piste exp so that will be the focus this time round, went ADH last year and did a bit so now we're hooked! Only going once next season so need to get it right :lol: Wish list: Good sized resort 100km + pistes Really good off piste (will probably use guide on a couple of days for some proper freeriding) Not France (been 3 times in a row) Decent apres Not too pricey (Most big austrian or swiss resorts can be written off I think) Liked the look of laax but couldn't get cheap accommodation :( Looked at Livigno (seems a bit out of the way and needs a hire car really, accommodation expensive!!!) Saalbach (connected to fieberbrunn which sounds epic but concerned about snowsure , anyone had experience that time of year?) Champoluc Monterosa (can't find much info, anyone been? whats the town like?) Look forward to your suggestions , Cheers
which other snowHeads love to answer.

Hi, new snowhead here! Looking for snowheads who have had experience with UCPA. What did you think of the quialty of instruction? I've read varying reports about it, but hoping to improve quite a bit. The only instruction I've had are beginner lessons at a snowdome, this was before gpoing to a serre che earlier this year. Assuming they would put me in 'Improver' group? Going 6th Jan Les Arcs full week instruction, have my fingers crossed for good conditions!! :sH:
And they're a friendly bunch.
