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 :-)

A snowHead
(Who has registered and logged into)
Location: snowHeadLand
Resort: Flumserberg
Country: Switzerland
Domain: none
Author: Roger C

Date: April 10-13 2009 (Easter weekend)
Our holiday: Family trip: Mrs C, Baby C (14 months old) and I with Mrs C's sister and her husband ( snowHead Foxthesnow)
Website : http://www.flumserberg.ch/winter/en/home/
Basics : BA flight from Heathrow T5 to Zurich then easy train transfer and gondola up from valley floor
total transfer time about 2.5 hrs
Lift system : A few t bars but mostly fast chairs including Switzerland's only 8 man chairlift!
The terrain : Nice intermediate cruising, nearly all blues and reds, nothing very difficult
The snow : Piste grooming was great and they were doing a good job of keeping even lower runs open in the mid april sunshine
As well as the skiing we really enjoyed the mountain walks which are also pisted and shown on the piste map

Off-piste : looked like some easy to acces stuff near the pistes, bowl above Prodalp looked like it would be great fun in fresh pow Very Happy
The resort : Resort split into two villages, Tannenheim (lower) and Tannenboden (higher), about 30 mins walk between them but hourly or so buses in the daytime. Not a place to go for a big night out but a few bars/restos
Food : We had a fantastic meal in the Hotel Tannenboden one night and good fun cooking our own meat one night at our hotel on hot stones
Accommodation : Hotel Siesta, very friendly/welcoming and ideal if you have kids. They have a dedicated playroom and each morning put out a high chair and bowl/bib etc for Baby C's breakfast. At the end of the weekend they dropped us off at the gondola station with their minibus. I would recommend this hotel if you decide to visit Flumserberg

Costs: We had adjoinging rooms with a shared bathroom and balcony which was perfect for us. Over this peak weekend it worked out at about £80 per night for a double room B&B. V.good value
Conclusion: A great very family friendly small resort with easy reach of Zurich airport
