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 :-)

Suggested Resort - March 23-27 2017 (next week)

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead

We are 4 people, flying into Munich next week and I'm looking for a resort for us all and I'm not sure which would would be perfect, I'd like your advice and suggestions on which resort you'd suggest to go to:
3 of us are ski / snowboard ok intermediate level. Can handle most pistes, prefer blue / red, like going down at a good pace.
Myself I'm a good boarder, I'm looking for park and ideally pipe (not pro but can handle nicely).
I'm looking for a resort the park isn't disconnected from the pistes, so we can all meet during the day and ski together.

1) Saalbach - seems like a cool option, we have friends there and a great park I understand. My main concern is their 40 - 80 cm snow. Is that really enough? Would that hold? are they accurate? Would appreciate any feedback.

2) Solden - looks like a good option, but has 20 cm at the bottom.

3) Kiztbuhel, heard that it's good, not sure about the current conditions will they hold?

4) Laax - killer place, been there last year, thinking of trying something new.

Any other suggestions for good resorts?
Any opinions?

Ischgl ticks all your boxes and has great terrain parks possibly the best in Austria.

It also has some outrageous nightlife, think Coyote Ugly.

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

Saalbach sounds a very good fit for your description (intermediates looking for lots of blues and reds). Why don't you drop by the dedicated thread to ask the locals what conditions are like right now?

The Saalbach thread is extremely helpful as @mad for chelsea, states. I'm just back from there and it's a great place for sure.
The other option for your group might be Mayrhofen. There's a superb boarder park on the Penken and plenty for your intermediate mates to cruise round. Although the village is low (but with some excellent après), the slopes are reasonably high and you have always got the Hintertux glacier 20 minutes up the road if conditions really do take a turn for the worse.

@doryz, There is plenty of good snow in Saalbach-Hinterglemm at the moment - all the main pistes are open as well as the links to Leogang, where the big park is, and Fieberbrunn. There is also a floodlit park in Hinterglemm.

Above 1400m/mid-station level, where 90% of the skiing is, the snow is good pretty much all day. The lower slopes back into the village are slushy from midday onwards. Not so good for skiers but no problem on a board.

For more info see the main Saalbach thread.
