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 :-)

For anyone looking at DW as a potential skiing destination, here is the link to the website Smile

Generally uncrowded slopes, good off-piste opportunities and reasonably priced, excellent mountain alms/huts Smile

Had a week in DW March 2016 based in Gosau and loved the area.

Intend to return in the near future.

Its definitely one of my favourite areas to ski.
I spent 8 days there last season and none on my local hill, Altenmarkt at all! I just love the views of the Dachstein/Hallstadt glacier it really feels like you are in the "big" mountains Madeye-Smiley


Hopefully we will meet up with you@Cacciatore, this year and not just sit in a hut drinking beer while you ski past us Twisted Evil

Hi Pete not sure if you’ve heard from Mark and Nicky but I’ve just got a place in Gosau so would certainly be up for a few adventures, although not too extreme to start with. I arrive on 9th after the pre season in Tignes Happy. Hope to catch up with you soon

Oh my! What an awesome, bluebird first day 😎

If the conditions were like this mid-season, one wouldn’t be disappointed. The pistes were in tip top condition and the coverage, generally, was excellent.

Roll on tomorrow morning for some more of the same snowHead

Nope, no injuries, fortunately Piste_Rider.

We had a quick couple of hours from mid morning....there couldn’t have been more than half a dozen other skiers around and, by midday, we were lapping on empty pistes 😎.

@Piste_Rider, Just wait til you get here... had another big dumpage this week and the pistes are in amazing condition! They are saying it's the best season start in yonks, if not ever. Clearly you're not the snow jonah!! snowHead snowHead I took a pic of your place this week as we passed, I'll send it to you. Very Happy

Went up Monday mid snow storm for a few more laps - from the Panorama Jet end this time (Gosau Hintertal) and the pistes are just in awesome condition, I was lapping from the mid-station down to base and on each run I was able to put in freshtracks and not just because it was snowing but again, no one much around. snowHead snowHead I'm limited to max 2 hours and short runs at the moment, so my reports will be very detailed about a specific few 100m worth... wink Laughing Laughing

Although I stayed low, @Cacciatore went all the way up and around about and he reported that all the pistes were in the same fantastic conditions. There is still limited opening this week, but we understand that the area opens fully with the links to Annaberg & Russbach this weekend. Can't wait!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

After a few days of almost continuous snow, the sun came out again today.

The runs, top to bottom, are simply amazing. Well into the afternoon there was plenty of untracked off-piste Cool

On Saturday all the area links open in what promises to be a really superb season, judging by the snow depths and quality.

This afternoon was spent in the Zwieselalm sector, hooning around on pistes with virtually no-one else about. Tomorrow looks to be much the same, and early lifts beckon Toofy Grin snowHead Cool

Christmas Day morning was rather lovely. Pistes in great condition under clear blue skies 😎.

Snow returns tomorrow and a fairly major storm due in the not too distant future.

Bodes well for the continuing excellent season snowHead snowHead
