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:

Our holiday: Just me a 16 year old quite experienced Skiier and my dad were skiing.
Website : Live cams on there.
Basics : WEll we got therer by Plane obviously then we had a private coach from Inghams, but that was only cause we were the only people going from innsbruck, then on the way back we were told we had to go on 3 trains and 1 taxi, and a bus, but in the end the bus crashed so we got a taxi back, look out for transfers.
Lift system : Well the ski areas are very spread out, there are 5 different ones. The lift system is to be honest not what i expected. A bit outdated and the train to the parsenne is ok, and we didnt have to wait but it might be an issue sometimes. There are a few too many T bars for my liking, not a lover of them, they are more tiring than a chair lift or anything, and one on the rhinnerhorn is about 15 minutes long, which is waay to long and it goes up some very steep stuff. The rhinnerhorn is good skiing but the lifts there are all T Bars part from the gondola up there, not great.
The terrain : The pistes seem to be very wide and open. The runs are quite close together in there specific area, but the ares themselves are spread apart. The grading of the runs is a bit dodgy aswell, i was one a blue somewhere and it seemed worse than the black that i went down to get to it!
The snow : Snow was good, because it is so high there is usually good snow i guess, lots of it and still on the rooves of buildings even though it hadnt snowed in over 2 weeks! Pistes where well prepared but only 5% snow making.
Off-piste :Umm i dont know
The resort : Well, There is no charcter to the place, just a very big village with lots of shops! There are a lot of facilities aswell, just about everything!
Accommodation : We stayed in the Central Sport hotel. A fantastic hotel, probably the best one we have stayed in going skiing. Staff are very friendly, facilities good and food is excelant and they do childrens meals
Costs: It isnt cheap. You are paying to go to "Davos" although i didnt no tha when i booked it! The lift passes are quite a lot...
Conclusion: A nice place, Very big, lots of skiing altough spread out, and usually good snow. Little Angel
Not that long as i havent gt time, will add to it Smile
