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 :-)

That first day back on the skiis after a break/fracture is a tentative one.

There was 5 to 10 cm of fresh snow about this morning. Got heavy fairly soon as temp rose but made for lots of fun, was great to get some o/p on our last day of the season.

@NickyJ, I don’t know that end of town very well. Train station is the other end but the free bus service is so good you won’t be far from a stop to go to station of gondola.

I see weather looks a bit more promising for the week. Fingers crossed for you.

@Bennyboy1, Where do you plan to go at the end of May, my first day back on snow after a broken leg about 25 years ago was Hintertux.

@JimboS, yes will be hintertux but only for a day or two. We do it just for the pure novelty of skiing at that time of year. Last couple of years anyway.

What type of break did you have? Doctor said 6 weeks recovery and maybe some physio so cutting it fine. Interested to know if the 6 weeks is a reasonable target.

Assuming my leg works we will be doing tennis, cycling and doing klettersteig with the kids mainly. Might try the caves at hintertux too. I think the rivers will be too cold for canyoning at that time (?).

I had a spiral fracture of the tibia and had a cast on for 6 weeks, but it was another few months before I got back onto my board, even then I was still nervous but was feeling confident after 10 minutes.

My kids did canyoning in June when the weather was good and it was fine, probably the air temp is a important as the water temp as I don't think the water ever gets much above freezing.

We tried the river rafting in June on a super hot day and it was a relief to jump into the water.

I don't really like heights that much but my wife forced me into doing this on the kiddies route, some of it was very scary but probably easy if you are used to a bit of wall climbing.

Any recommendation for eateries both on and off the mountain (Mayrhofen)?

Especially ones which do food early evening? We are self catering but wouldn’t mind at least one evening meal out if we can find any where doing food earlier (5:30 - 6pm time)?

Thanks - getting very excited now as should be there about 2pm Saturday all going well.

Edelweiss (upstairs lounge/patio) for pizza.

Bar at the bottom of the Ahorn lift, if it’s nice weather. Think it’s called Stoaner's Bienenhäusl. Does food and a very nice view.

We are up the mountain at Mayrhofen. There was a decent dump of snow last night making the runs lovely. Still snowing today and cloud keeps making very poor visibility. As we have both girls with us staying in the blue runs through the trees which my youngest is enjoying. You can see there was definitely some icy patches before this fresh snow so very grateful for it. Forecast is for sun for the next 3 days and rain on Friday (hope that holds of until we are coming home Saturday)

Great snow up in the mountains this morning. First time skiing Harakiri in 30 cm powder at 9 am this morning... Soon turned foggy and wet snow, but rest of the week looks good

Skied with a guide at Hintertux yesterday. Fantastic off piste conditions given it being 15th of April and that it was a hot day. Deep powder after the snowfall in the weekend. Finished the day by skiing the deserted back valley from the top t-bar. 1,5 hour taxi drive home but well worth it. What a season ending in the valley

Yesterday was lovely. The clouds had cleared so I could actually see more than a few feet Happy, some runs were getting quite slushy but most were in brilliant condition. No queues anywhere!
