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 :-)
durr, I forgot...
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

Kitzbueheler Alpen Pass covers 5 resorts between 700 and 2000 meters
Dec 2007 / Christmas
6. Our holiday:
Small group of couples
Western Austria. Around 90 mins from Salzburg Airport
9. Lift system:
The lifts suck. They are old and slow. The buses are infrequent and unreliable. The system is a disgrace. Scorecard = 3 / 10
10. The terrain:
The onpiste is bland. It is mostly blues and reds. Very few steeps. The Hahnenkamm is vastly overhyped. 4 / 10
11. The snow:
Good snow, despite its low height. Nonstop sun. Coverage top to bottom, but icy and patchy lower down. 7 / 10
Useful offpiste. Plenty of open or gladed powderfields. Just don't expect Chamonix. 6 / 10
13. The resort:
Goodlooking village. It is busy and buzzy. Vibrant nightlife. Lots of trophy wives. Not as rich as St Moritz. 9 / 10
Restaurants are plentiful, from McDonald's to Michelin Stars. 8 / 10
Everything is here, from onestar to fivestar. Go to Aschau for that middle-of-nowhere seclusion. 9 / 10
Prices are surprisingly competitive for such a rich resort. 8 / 10
If you are going for the skiing, then forget it. If you want a cool town with some skiing thrown in, then Kitz is a solid choice.
Total Scorecard = 54 / 80 (68%).
For comparison, St Moritz gets 65 / 80 (81%).
