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 :-)

Hello to all snowheads,
Heading to Saalbach on the 19th of January. Unfortunately wasn't able to convince any friends or relatives to go at late notice so will be flying solo.
If anyone has any recommendations for good places to meet up with people etc they would be much appreciated
And if anyone is going to be in Saalbach and was keen to meet up for a drink that would also be great!

@jospehdaly111, a big group of us arrive 19th, most apres afternoons around 4/5pm you will find us in Burgi’s bar, at the bottom of the Kohlmais slope/lift

In my view the best bar in Saalbach, it’s a small bar, but generally great apres.

Burgi and her son Mattias will look after you and we would be happy to share a beer with you.

thats 2 of us burgis is usually fun and friendly either in a group or not, esp after skiing down from an hour or so in the hinterhag and bergeralm, the problem is getting back to hotel and showered before dinner. weve being going to her bar for a few years and as you walk/stagger up the steps on the first night of your hols to be recognised and have your usual tipple on the bar is great service and appreciation of your custom

@josephdaly111, you’ll find us in the Bergeralm between 3.30-5.15pm most days, Crazy Deer Monday late evening, Spitzbub Tuesday and Thursday early evening, Otzi Bar Sunday and Wednesday late evening. Underbar when we have the stamina late evening.
Incidentally we like the new Irish Bar at the Alpenhotel - good Irish music, draft Guinness and a relative haven of peace in between other bars. (Once in a blue moon you might find us in Burgi’s).

On the continuing theme of non smoking mountain restaurants, the Panorama Alm is non smoking up to 3pm. Had very enjoyable cheesy sausage, until they started smoking (late lunch)

I noticed this season wherever I’ve been so far what with not staying in Saalbach itself, that more people have been standing outside having a cigarette.
What’s changed though? Anything? Or are more businesses coming around to the idea that they are better off suiting the non-smokers than the smokers?

Good point. I’m all for it. I went into a cafe in St Johann last week for lunch and it had a smoking side and a non smoking side but with the sliding door it still wafted in anyway.
It was like going back to pubs in the UK way before the smoking ban when everyone just took it as a given that people smoked.

Hi,

Can anyone recommend some restaurants for lunch. All goodish skiers so don't mind travelling to get there (from base in Saalbach).
Also, is it better to eat in the towns or up the mountain?

Thanks,

Gary

@garyham, no sense in coming off the mountain, even though you would get a good meal. Take your pick from any mountain restaurant, I cannot think of any I wouldn’t recommend, all superb. Standout ones - Panorama alm, Westernstadl, head over to Leogang take your pick from the three at the top, everybody has their favourite but seriously all good

@garyham, PM me your email address and I’ll send you my comprehensive guide, which contains sections on recommended mountain and village restaurants.
One of the Ski Circus’s attributes is the number, diversity and reasonable prices of its restaurants - around 60 on the mountains, and dozens in the villages.

Did the valley from Reiterkogel to Lengau, up the Zwolfer, then Schattberg and down via 2b; up the Schonleiten and over for a beer and kaspresknodel at AsitzBrau...
Then back to the valley, to Saalbach, up the Bernkogel and we were the last onto the Reiter 6er, which meant completely empty piste 35,34,38 and 39 back to Reitorkogelbahn.
Now relaxing with a dunkel and ready for the Knappenstubbe and Biker Bar!

@Leonard Smalls, Sounds like an excellent and very full day. I’m ashamed to admit that all I did was head over the Kohlmais to piste 68 (which was perfect and virtually deserted as usual), sat in the sun at the Hecherhuette, back to the Bergeralm for an apres-ski session, and then skied down in the moonlight. (Note, not a mention of gulasch soup, jagatee and beer, although those also played their part).

Does this mean it will be super busy on the slopes or is it not too bad?

I’ve found a place with availability. Just need to make a decision!
