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 :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

Austria: Rauris 2017/18

I seem to be lucky when I visit Rauris, for today was another perfect bluebird day. With a couple of friends, I had a great time in both parts of the Rauris area, starting off as usual on the Kreuzboden side (using the Waldalmbahn gondola) and later moving over to the Hochalm pistes. Here is a photo looking up piste 9 alongside the Waldalmbahn (actually from last year but today the piste was just about as empty most of the time)...

The snow was good, often sugary and soft but basically hard-packed with some polished bits.

When we were on the Hochalm side, we skied once down black piste 5 to the valley. This is the view looking down to the village of Rauris...

And just to show that we managed it, here are my friends at the top of the Gratlift T-bar, one of the steepest I know...

It was a very pleasant day and at the end we walked along Rauris' attractive main street and enjoyed a Glühwein in the Stadl Café.
