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 :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

A snowHead
(Who has registered and logged into)
Location: snowHeadLand
Resort: Krippenstein - as seen in Warren Miller's Off the Grid
Country: Austria
Domian: Dachstein West
Author: Debbie Manuell
Date: Xmas 2005
Group: Mixed group
website: (Currently german only)
Basics: 1 1/2 hours south east of Salzburg
Lift-system: Krippenstein gondola to the top not much else, Gosau excellent set of modern lifts good capacity
Skiing: Krippenstein longest Austria run 11km, but top off-piste area, no wide open spaces requires good technical level. Gosau 140km wide intermediate piste. Neither resort at all crowded.
Snow: Surprisingly perhaps, at only 2000m snow all the way down to resort at 600m, at Xmas! Excellent
Off-piste: Good level of ability required, no wide open spaces, but a real thrill.
Resort: village of Obertraun, small freindly place. 1 shop for provisions. number of restaurants/bars + disco. but not for those looking for wild apre-ski
Food: excellent value, eat for under £10 per head including drink
Costs: lift pass under £100 for the week, rooms from £20 a night, very good value, considering the range of skiing available in the 2 areas.
Accommodation: stayed at Obertrauner Hof, clean, very freindly, B&B £20 per night, no high season
Conclusion: going again January 2007. be prepared to travel 15 min to Gosau, for Off-Piste 'Rip the krip' as locals would say.
