Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)

Oh bloody hell - looks like I'm targeting you but it's not intentional - having spent 10 plus weeks on the campsite at Soelden within hearing distance of the main road I can assure you that snowchains are often used!

Edit; it's possible they aren't going to Obergurgl - Vent? That bit above Soelden that's still Soelden?


Anyway, OP has snowchains - hopefully will have appropriate tyres after reading all this and wants route guidance.

We’re off to Solden and staying in Ibis Styles Karlsruhe. Stayed there a few times before - would recommend

Ibis Budget at Aachen (Germany) on the way, Ibis at Aalst (Belgium) on the way back - used them 4 times in a row.

We travel from the Northwest UK to the Tyrol, these two stop-offs break the journey well and see you arriving in Austria in daylight.

Plenty of options to eat in Aachen, and a gastro pub in Aalst in walking distance of the Ibis (the Fox).

Aalst is about an hour and a half drive from Calais (it's closer if you use Dunkirk).

Vent is on a side valley with the turning soon after Solden;I don't think it's as high as Obergurgl.

You might mean HochSolden?

No, I did mean Vent. The buses going up to the Moos Alm area also often use snow chains..
