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 :-)

May Skiing

Been down to Tuxer-Ferner-haus (2600 m) in mid July, so shouldn't be a problem in May.
It's a decent mostly red run from the top.

@Grizzler, Yep I meant the Kitzsteinhorn which I think of as "Kaprun" - the Maiskogal is just a half-day bonus area but already finished end March. You can ski the glacier until July. Zell itself struggles on into mid-April but its a bonus if there is much there at that time. But if it is a mixed activity holiday I'd argue almost as easy to stay there as Kaprun even if only skiing the glacier.

Riksgrensen (or even Riksgransen??...). All the other options are compromises.
Having been to Riksgransen and Stubai (plus about 8 other alpine glaciers) in May-October, I would strongly disagree with the above - and agree with the plus-points of Stubai highlighted by Bergmeister. There's every chance of decent snow conditions on the glacier and lovely weather to boot.

While we really enjoyed Riksgransen, it has about 15km of piste at best; most lifts are draglifts; prices/accommodation are sky high; and there's nothing there in terms of a ski resort.

I'd definitely go for Stubai - and stay down the valley in the gorgeous village of Neustift.


+1,000,000 to this

I took a day trip to Riksgransen during my time in Narvik, Norway.

Lovely drive, cheaper alcohol, some decent lift accessed terrain.

Paled in comparison with Narvik.

And Stubai.
