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 :-)

Saalbach Accomodation 2020

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Planning ahead for 2020.

Looking to go to Saalbach....new resort for our group.

Likely to be 5 nights starting on a Sunday or Monday in early Feb.

4 rooms, 8 people. Prefer a tidy B&B/Pension close to centre/lifts

Anyone point me in the right direction ? Appreciate that hotels may not want to take bookings at this stage for incomplete weeks so just trying to get a feel for what's possible.

Many thanks

@Blastfromthepast, early Feb = semester holidays in Austria, plus various German and Dutch holidays. Accommodation providers will have less trouble selling full weeks, you may struggle.

Aside of @queenie pretty please’s point on part week and height of season, also to add changeover day is generally Saturday in Saalbach. So arriving Saturday would at least give a bit more of fighting chance, albeit in reality I would think you will end up paying for a week as they will be able to fill it.

Worth looking at villages outside centre of Saalbach, such as Vorderglemm, where not there is still lift access as per your criteria

If 5 days is all you can do, then booking for 7 days( and only using 5 )in an outlying village probably similar cost as 5 days central Saalbach.

Agree ^^^ any “mainstream” accommodation will be full weeks Sat to Sat only as it’s bang peak time, particularly as it’s 4 rooms, not just the one. No pension owner will want it half empty for 2 days.

Why not think about renting an apartment or two adjacent ones. Yes you will have to pay for full weeks but that should not be too much of a money issue and plenty of flexibility. Apartments in Austria tend to be roomy and well equipped, old style French shoe boxes are rare.

Ive stayed here often, its a lovely, cosy typical Austrian B&B complete with slightly bonkers decoration. Tony and Mary are great hosts. Admittedly I stay there mostly in summer for DH mtbing but ive always been able to book wierd stays, Wed - Sun or something like that...

@Blastfromthepast, either. Austrian and German semester holidays tend to be the first three weeks in February. Dutch holidays tend to be the middle two weeks of February.

But what you may find is that you need to book late as accommodation providers will hold out for week long bookings until nearer the time.

Try here, we stayed there a couple of years back. Fairly basic but not far from town centre great value and reasonable rooms, seem to recall there was a chalet adjacent which looked good too?

A group of 10 of us stayed at this place in early March a couple of years ago.

It was very comfy, not too pricey and 5 minutes walk from the lifts.

Sorry, should have said it was Wednesday to Saturday, so they consider part weeks.
