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 :-)

Ski Amadé 2020-21

@holidayloverxx, yesterday was the best ski day I ever had at Flachau, perfect pistes no queues, a once in a lifetime experience. Your name was mentioned more than a few times Sad

We rode the lift up with a couple of local hoteliers who said in their whole time of living here, over 60 years, this was the first time they had been able to ski midweek in Flachau in January, and although times are hard for them financially, they were absolutely going to make the most of it.

Meant to post that I was at Riesneralm on Saturday. While the weather was pretty good (Bergfex seemed to predict 30km/hr winds which didn't appear), the snow wasn't great. Grainy, icy and generally pretty bumpy. Also quite slushy towards the bottom of the mountain due to warm temperatures. The day was quite hard work and the young fella had had enough by mid-afternoon. Still, it was much better than sitting at home.

I posted elsewhere that crowds were busier than a couple of weeks ago, but for school holiday period, it was not particularly crowded.

COVID related lift control was pretty casual. Most people wearing FFP2 masks, some weren't and nobody really did anything about it. The takeaway service (hot drinks, chips etc) at the bottom of the mountain was busy at lunch time, with a good 20 or 30 people hanging around, mostly mask free, waiting for their orders.

Hi Team,

I have a client looking for a season rental for 21-22 Season. Dutch family with two young children from Dec 21-Apr 22. Apartment or small chalet, doesn't have to be on the slopes but must be within 75 Mins of Salzburg Airport to facilitate commute. Decent budget. I can't supply as we're already booked for next year. If you know of any potential solutions please PM me.

So I got ski-amade season passes for the family back in Dec to secure a discount on the optimistic hope I could use them in the spring. Realising there's no hope of escaping the UK before mid-May, I requested a refund yesterday, very impressed with ski-amade, I simply sent an email to request a refund and was sorted within 5 minutes. Set my sights on some (any!) late spring / early summer ski touring now which I can combine with some mtb-ing. Dreaming....

Just read up on that, unbelievable. The doctor knew he had corona and treated patients, and that without a mask too.
The police caught him and charged him but didn't detain him. The doctor turned up for work again the next day so he was jailed.

Zauchensee are promising to keep lifts open until end March, there is still some nice off piste if you tour for it, also Obertauern is hoping to stay open as usual till May 1st there's some good touring possibilities up there too if you start very early.
I woke up to a light dusting of snow here this morning, but IMHO, you do better to wait and have a good MTB season. If its any consolation at all, this has probably been one of the poorest seasons for off piste, I think we've only had about 10 days of pow here in Pongau, absolutely not complaining I know we have been so lucky to ski at all but hope you don't feel too gutted to have missed the season. If you had to skip a year, this was the one.

Shocked
In the UK the General Medical Council (GMC) would probably investigate such a case and if it thought appropriate could strike the doctor from the medical register, thus preventing them from working as a GP in future. I presume there is an Austrian equivalent to the GMC?

@Alastair Pink,
I don't know who the governing body is but yes doctors get struck off here in Austria too.

Yep, even without corona this wouldn't have been a season to remember (for good snow conditions). I'm optinistic the ski trips that were put off this year will have beter snow conditions when they actually happen.
Looking forward to the mountain biking season now.

@Kooky, I've not been too gutted, kept head down working not dwelling too much on what we can't do right now. Like you say doesn't look like a vintage powder season, though of course March can still deliver the goods.

Right so that Austrian GP, is he now a super-spreader whilst doing porridge?

I was reading news this week about consultant, that operated on my knee some years back, was just struck off for covering up the fact he put the wrong knee prosthesis in a patient! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-56245888

My Mrs had a knee opp a few years ago. As she was being anaesthetised the surgeon started drawing on the wrong knee. She managed to gargle a complaint in time. She woke up with a massive cross and the words 'Not This Knee' in marker pen written on the other leg.
