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 :-)

@jellemr, Apologies only read your message properly now. You already mentioned that you were going swimming. It is only a 10 min walk from the train station with no uphill.

There is a great swimming pool complex in Fugen complete with toddler pool wave pools etc. We normally stay in Kaltenbach and drive to it most evenings. From memory it is open from 11am til 10pm. If you are staying close to the lifts it is at least a 15 min walk though.

I agree with @geoffknight, keep the ferry distances to a minimum in January. I would hate waiting several days for a ferry due to storms.

@flangesax, I def want to try your place in the future but it doesn't suit for this trip. I am looking for something in the centre of a town. Still torn between Kaltenbach and Flachau. Both have done well from the recent snow and more forecast to come. The opportunity to experience a world cup race is a big draw towards Flachau.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Hi, I am looking for resort recommendations for next Saturday. I have booked a hire car so are fairly flexible. My shortlist is Zillertal valley, Saalbach, Flachau and Schladming but there may be others that I have not thought of. I am going to Kaltenbach in Feb and I really enjoy the very accessible and easy off piste. Have also been to Saalbach in the past and enjoyed it. I am veering more towards Flachau or Schladming as they have more snow forecast and have never been to either. From reading previous threads Flachau seems to have better Apres ? The local mountain ( or 4 mountains ) in Schladming is bigger ? Which would have the most accessible off piste ? Is there anywhere else that I should consider ? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

In kaltenbach at the mo, pistes quite good except the run into the village at the end of the day. It is busy but no queues to speak of. A few cm forecast for tomorrow and a little more on Friday will hopefully freshen things up.

2b or not 2b that is the question. Sorry could't help it. I always enjoyed the run first thing in the morning the top section is steep but short, the rest of it is very gentle. A great run to start the day.

When I was there 5 years ago there was a small ski hire shop beside the Club Med hotel, that was before it was bought by Club Med though. It was the cheapest hire that I paid for in a long time, less than €50 for skis, boots and helmet. Had paid over €100 a month previously in Isghl. Am sure that someone will have more up to date knowledge.

I stayed in Serfaus 2 years ago and the train is very efficient, comes every 15 mins at peak times and there are great lockers at the bottom of the lifts so you don't have to carry your skis. It is not a very big village, we walked the length of it in 15/20 mins.

Used them in Salzburg Jan '14 through a broker. They tried to charge me an out of hours fee even though I picked up/ dropped off car at agreed times. Seemingly they are only open til 12:30 pm on Saturdays. The broker managed to get the charges refunded.

I too released my bindings for the summer a few years ago and forgot. I skied for 3 days before coming right out of my bindings. I somehow managed to stay upright but was very baffled as to how both of my skis released until I realised my blunder. Haven't released my bindings for the Summer since.

Hochzillertal might suit your needs or more specifically hochfugen. According to Google it is just over 2 hours from Munich airport, but with traffic possible a little more. I am nor sure if you will find catered chalets there though. The map doesn't have many blue runs but the ref pistes are actually quite tame. The big selling point for the area in my view is the easily accessed off piste. I have just had 2 epic days messing about at the edge of the pistes on untracked shin deep powder. They have loads of ski routes marked on the map, I saw an article recently ranking it in the top 5 resorts in Europe for off piste beginners. By staying in hochfugen you could meet them for lunch each day quite easily as the ski area is compact.

We are in kaltenbach this week and the creche is up the mountain 1000m above the village. We bring our 7 month old up every morning without any problems. I have also noticed lots of other parents with young children up in buggies up the mountain. In resorts such as serfaus they have a system so that the lifties know that there is a parent with a buggy in the gondola, so they are ready to give them a helping hand unloading from the lift.

+1. Great resort especially for families. We flew into Zurich and hired a car. It was an easy drive to Serfaus. Can be done by train also to Landeck and taxi or bus to the resort.

@HeidiAmsterdam, That's all we could see when we were in Sauze in January. There may have a secret garage somewhere but we couldn't see any evidence of one. We put the fact that not all of the blue pistes were bashed every night down to the lack of bashers. Hope that I am wrong. Personally I would prefer to ski unbashed powder than the icy scraped pistes that we had to contend with.

As far as I know the closest place to hire a car is Turin airport. We did this last week and it was €105 for the week. We booked a golf sized car but got a Peugeot 308 so had a bit more room. The journey is very easy motorway all the way except for the last 6km, only took an hour. As the skiing was so limited in Sauze we used the car to go to Montgenevre, Serre Chevalier and Orelle (3 Valleys) for day trips.

@deadkenny, I can't see 27 lifts open in sauze according to the vialattea website there are going to be 5 lifts and 11 runs open tomorrow. Several of those runs are basically the same run 11a,b &c. There are 27 lifts running throughout the vialattea but without the links being opened they are useless to someone staying in Sauze. Looking at the charts there is some snow due this weekend and maybe a few cm on Thurs after that I can't see much else. Hope that I am wrong as we will be out there next Saturday.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Thanks for all of your reassurance. @altis, the handirack looks good but it costs nearly as much as the car hire for a week plus I am not bothered about the comfort of the passengers.

Does anyone have experience of fitting skis into a VW Golf or similar sized car ? I am considering hiring one from Turin airport and we will be travelling with 2 pairs of skis (167cm) and 3 bags, will have 2 passengers but I am not too worried about their comfort as it will only be a short transfer. Thanks in advance.

I can't understand it either. Surely, the links between the resorts would be obvious places to put snow cannons. It doesn't look as if they are going to get that kind of snow any time soon.

I think that there is pretty much a standard rate for all of the resorts in the Milky Way of €150 e/w for a bus for 1-4 people and €175 for 4-8 people. Check out Go-Montegenevre.com

1) I agree can't beat Innsbruck 2) Three of us stayed at Gastehaus Monika last January, could not fault it for the price. We had a 2 bedroom apt on the ground floor. It is less than 100 metres from the Penkenbahn lift. Breakfast is served from 7:30 and we made the first lift at 8 each morning. 3) Probably not much that you can do about the price if you are doing it diy.

I stayed in Pragelato 5 years just before it became a Club Med resort. It was a lovely hotel and chalets. There is a very small ski area in Prag itself but in order to access the Milky Way you either have to take a lift which operated every 30 mins or the free skibus to Sestriere. When we were there those who had lessons were given priority on the bus in the mornings, but that may have changed with Club Med. The lift isn't really suitable for beginners though as you are deposited way up the mountain with a choice of reds or blacks to get down to Sestriere. I would rate Sestriere as being much better for beginners that Tignes or Les deux Alpes. The pistes are always well groomed and there are enough blues to keep any beginner entertained for a week

Red 64 from Moseralm down to Fiss is great for building confidence. We found it much easier than many of the blues. There is a great side run for children near the top of the run with bats and bears that make noises as you ski past. Overall it is a great resort with something for everyone.
