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 :-)

As @carolyn, is not living here any longer I thought I would start a new thread and include the rest of the Ski Juwel area.
Alpbach opened for the weekend last weekend and is planning to do the same this coming weekend, official opening date is the 8th December so two bonus weekends for those able to take advantage. Maybe I will have a look this weekend but my son wants me to go to Axamer Lizum with him so maybe I will have to wait..
Auffach is also due to open on 8th with Niederau a week later on the 15th. We have snow down into the valley already and the nursery slopes in the village have been pisted already.
Currently we are having steady snowfall at all levels and very cold temperatures forecast for the next few days. Keep dancing!

Clear and cold (-7 in the car park) at the moment but clouds are rolling in now. Yesterday was cold and sunny with temperatures well below zero at all levels all day.
Alpbach is opening 6 lifts for the weekend so may go there tomorrow.

Well I can still find my way down a mountain, snow was plentiful but some of the pistes require a little more work to make them more skiable. I'm sure a few more grooms and all is fine, off piste in Aufach is good for the time of year. Didn't get to Alpbach but have been told conditions there are if anything better than Auffach.

Welcome to the thread @carolyn. Been very warm with the Föhn storm the last couple of days but we seem to have missed the worst of it with none of the really strong winds some places have seen. Temperatures were quite warm yesterday with a high of about 12 degrees. This was followed by heavy rain overnight last night, I was half expecting to get up to green meadows this morning but the snow has survived remarkably well. In the morning it started to snow and the temperature has continued to drop all day. Tomorrow is looking a lot better so off to Auffach to see if there has been any damage to the snow pack higher up Very Happy

Found your new thread @Chris_n, thanks for making it easy. Thought it was high time I had a look around to see what photos you have of the snow this season. We're coming out again in February as usual. Arriving 3rd February and staying in the Harfenwirt.

Is the red ski school still the same as last year? i.e. based in the village, so we have to get there on the Sunday, rather than starting in front of the Harfenwirt?

Not long to go now. snowHead snowHead snowHead

Anybody know if there is any truth in story I heard that owner of Harfenwirt has fallen out with one of the ski schools (red?) and will try to insist all his guests book with the Blues?

We (Red ski school) are running lessons at the Harfenwirt slope again this year.
Another covering of snow again least night.
On a different note thoughts today are with @carolyn, sadly her mother passed away this morning.

@Chris_n, Really sorry to see that. Awful for Carolyn and her family. Especially at a time of year when everyone is partying for Christmas and the opening of the season.

Guess I will be trotting into the village to pick up skis, lift pass and book into ski school as early as possibly on the Sunday then, and hurry back to the Harfenwirt to start there. I would prefer to be based there if possible. We won't be arriving until about 7:30pm on the Saturday, so it will be too late to sort everything out then. Not sure if Alistair is attending ski school this year. He is still thinking about it. I will though. I don't think I could safely wander around the slopes on my own for the whole week.

@J Rhiannon, are you not able to at least book ski school in advance and charge up a lift pass?

@Pamski, I could probably do ski school in advance. I can only get they 6 day lift pass through Crystal, but I want it for 7 days so I think I have to get it from the kiosk.

First day proper of the season today, lots more people (mainly Dutch) about than previous years. First time I have ever had more Dutch in my group than British. Loads of sunshine today but still cold after a couple of miserable damp days. Snow is firm on piste but not really icy so all in all perfect piste conditions.

Another few inches overnight, looking nice with snow in the trees this morning Very Happy. Unfortunately it is looking like rain this afternoon at least at village level, hopefully snow on the tops. Piste conditions are still good with a good base beneath the recent snowfalls.
