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 :-)

Anyone been to Sillian, Lienz, Spittal-an-der-Drau or Mallnitz?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Fellow Snowheads - I'm planning on taking the train from Saltzburg to Brunico in a few weeks' time and quite fancy stopping off at one or two of the resorts that the train line passes through e.g. Sillian, Lienz, Spittal-an-der-Drau or Mallnitz.
Wondered if anyone's been to any of these and can provide recommendations?
Ideally, I'd prefer places where the skiing and hotels are fairly near the railway station (or where there's a frequent shuttle bus between the two).
Any info greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Vierschach (Versciaco) just inside the Italian border, but firmly germanic, has a worthwhile area that links across to Sexten (Sesto) and the Kreuzberg Pass (Passo Monte Croce). The new train station on the Pustertal line opened this year.

Looks like you step off the train onto the chairlift... snowHead

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Thanks Luigi, that's great. Just what I was after.
I've used the same line for Perca which has a brilliantly integrated gondola and railway station (with ski hire) and this looks like the same kinda thing.

I didn't get round to Sillian last year, but I had an epic day at Obertilliach just up the valley. Some frinds also had good times at Sillian:

that looks like a rather conveniently located train station platform
was trying to sort out trains to brunico, and was interested to see that bahn.de wants to route me via Salzburg and Lienz rather than Innsbruck and Brenner
and I'm guessing some/all of those pustertal tiny ski villages are also on the dolomiti superski pass, assuming that's the intended destination

The new James Bond film, "Spectre", is being filmed in Obertilliach in January, I believe, although I don't know exactly when or what that might involve. Maybe you could get a job as an extra Very Happy

We [currently] live near Nassfeld and our season ski pass covers over 30 resorts in the Carinthia and Ost Tirol area. Sillian is a great little resort. Not much snow this year but we had a great few hours there the other week. We absolutely love Lienz, which is actually two ski areas, one on each side of the town. Goldeck above Spittal also good for a day or two. There is also Dreiecke (Arnoldstein) , Gerlitzen just outside of Villach and loads of other small areas.

Next week we are heading to Badkleinkirchen area for a few days.

I think Sillian will be connected by lifts / pistes to the 3 Zinnen Dolomites part of the Dolomiti Superski region sometime in the next couple of years.

I believe that's the plan, and I've sort of been waiting for that to happen before organising a trip. However even with the connecting lift, it may be more convenient to use the train. Time will tell.

I've skied Kals-Matrei & at the Mölltaler Gletscher. It's around 1 hr from Lienz to the Mölltaler Gletscher.
If it were me, based on the warm & sunny weather forecast I'd base myself near the Möltaler glacier as the lower resorts are likely to suffer and the best conditions will be up on the glacier.
Plus with this virus that is going around I'd not want to be too close to Italy.
