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 :-)

Nah; Gsteig beats that hands down.

1 lift v 2 (0.5km v 0.85km)
143m vertical v 340m
1 blue and 1 red v 2 blues, a red AND a black.

Had a fun day there as novices though, the dog beat us down every time!

Pah that's huge compared to Dinner Plain in Australia which has 1 drag lift, 20m of vertical, and 1 slope 150m long.

Plenty that size around the lower areas of Austria. Specifically in the Graz region there's :

Klug Lift Hebalm: https://www.bergfex.com/kluglifte/

Modriach (never enough snow to open more than one or two slopes, so the 7km listed is bordering on a lie): https://www.bergfex.com/modriach/

Wimmerlift: https://www.bergfex.com/wimmer/

St. Radegund Lift: https://www.bergfex.com/sankt-radegund/

Cool micro-resort.

As above, quite a few dotted around Australia, NZ, EU, UK, US, etc.

One lift and one run.

Often on golf courses, forest land, or farmland.

In Andorra, Hotel Canaro near to Soldeu has something along the miniscule lines of what mikeycharlton said - though it's only available to hotel clients.

And there are a handful of other (public) micro-areas dotted around the Iberian peninsular outside of the Pyrenees: in Galicia and Portugal for example.

That said, the place in the video from the OP looks lovely!

Keep 'em coming. I remember skiing a wonderful little resort near Klosters, Fideris Heuberg but it is on a reasonably large scale. At the end of the day we climbed to Hintegg then Glatwang and skied down to Fideris station (I suppose).

Jauerling, Lower Austria

1 T-bar lift
500m 'long' piste, but with a massive 131m altitude drop (956 m down to 825m).
Even when there is enough snow (unlike now) it only opens on certain days, some days only in the afternoons.

From 825 m - 956 m

https://www.jauerling.at/lift
Costs a massive €22.50 for a Day pass or €16 for night skiing.

The Grenoble area is one of the best for micro resorts. If you have tiny children, you can take turns skiing, with one person in a nice warm cafe. There are tons of these places in the Chartreuse and Vercors. If you are interested in punter ski racing, then all of them have a slalom or two each year as well on the FFS circuit.

Happy days!

Viewed from a distance, by an observer with only a passing familiarity with the sport, that is exactly what it would look like if I was skiing!

Actually, the usual crowd is youngsters who tend to be pretty good.

Another one ….

The Hohe Wand Wiese in Vienna.
It used to be 400m long
Altitude diff' = 110m (260m to 370m).
They used to race there (FIS).

Sadly since the 2016/17 Season the T-bar is shut and they only have a 40m magic carpet for kids. Lower down they have an artificial dryslope section. It has mountainbiking trails and a Rodelbahn in the summer.

The French Masters circuit goes to several small stations each year.

One is usually Les Rafforts above Ugine which only has two lifts.

 You know it makes sense.

Our most popular local one is 500m long, 90m vertical. It'll see far more use for MTB uplift in summer than skiing now.
There is another, but it's a private club lift, 300m long, 44m vertical.
It has not snowed at all here this winter, although there may have been a dusting in the hills.

Brudarebacken in Gothenburg is 270m long, 42m vertical. I've only seen it open once, the first winter we were here. It claims to have 2 button lifts but reality is slightly less appealing: one rope tow just above boot level, with bar/hook things to go behind one leg. On the plus side, it's only just outside the city.
