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 :-)

@bambionskiis, Yes that's Gamsleiten 2. Bits of it are quite steep, I've stood on it and rested my outstretched hand on the slope Very Happy

@bobbev999, anytime you want! There is always room for a few more!

Actually that run is nowhere near as gnarly as it looks. The camera angle is very deceptive. If you are a competent red run skier on a normal ski day it's a breeze. Not so much fun when it's icy though.

That's fine with us. Six am flight so got up at 1.45 in order to do cheap off site parking and get to Brum at 4. Fine so far but 3 TUI ski flights at the same time meant a 45 min check in queue. Then a 15 min ski bag drop off queue. Then the longest ever security queue meant no breakfast, even a coffee. We ran to the plane at 5.55 and we weren't the last to board. So still tired and stressed and it's going to be rainy tomorrow! Hotel internet does not work, along with several other first world problems! Still looking forward to seeing everyone. If anyone else wants to come another day, happy to meet up. I'm off to bed now.

Have a great time. Just a heads up, the traffic to, and the queues at, Salzburg on our return to Brum were absolutely awful, so if you are going back from there leave plenty of time. We had a Text the night before saying apologies but we were going to be leaving from terminal 2. There are very few facilities or seats there which wasn’t a problem really as by the time we cleared security it was time to join the boarding queue. Fingers crossed you get terminal 1

@CANV CANVINGTON, I hope you're right! Went on the bus to the Grosseck Speiereck area today. Not big, did just about all by lunchtime but a nice change of scenery. A lot less depth of snow though. Ok high but we skied down to St Michael and the last bit was a strip of artificial snow between greenery! Unbelievable!

Was lovely early this morning but then the wind got up and the vis got worse this afternoon. Got back about 4.30 and it's got worse. Snowing, though, so can't really complain. No idea about tomorrow's weather. The daily forecasts have been spectacularly wrong so far!

Well the snowHead Obertauern meet went ahead as planned. Lovely to see everyone. It was my first time skiing in Obertauern. It reminded me very much of skiing in France where all the lifts and pistes circle the village. It's mostly above trees so in poor weather (like yesterday morning) it's no fun at all, but luckily for us the sun came out in the afternoon. It's a pretty big ski area but generally poorly groomed, again more like France than anywhere else I ski in Austria. Not sure I'll be rushing back! Toofy Grin

@queenie pretty please, I think its very unfair to say it is poorly groomed based just on yesterday. I have skiied there countless times and never thought this at all, and I have skiied opening day and closing day most years, it has always been really good.
The thing is with yesterday, I got there at first lift and had 2 amazing powder on piste runs, the slopes were as smooth as underfoot, but the problem is when they get a big dump like that within a few hours (and it was literally just that as when I checked the webcams at 7 the road was free, but I needed chains on an hour later) couple that with extremely poor viz and its a bit of a hazard to go out bashing when the slopes are open and it was very busy up there.
The slopes get chopped up just within an hour with that amount of traffic unfortunately.


I have experienced exactly the same conditions this year in Flachau/Wagrain/Schladming ( all with great visability too) yet there were no bashers in sight, but I still wouldnt say they are poorly groomed.


You just need another day up there with me before this season is over, you WILL see the way of The Grim O Twisted Evil
