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 :-)

Red Turns (Free Austrian wine tasting in all the mountain huts) in Zell am See probably 3rd weekend in March.
Excellent day out but you'll need a cheese plate or two mop up as the afternoon wears on..... hic.

Hochkonig Kraft Beer Festival around the same weekend.

Thanks @radar, and @Klamm Franzer, sounds as though march worth a gamble, so will make the change .I think , however, I'll be torn between 'white pearl' health and fitness or 'red turns' wine tasting !! Actually that's not true - can only be wine tasting snowHead

@Klamm Franzer, and @radar, also I would naturally have been doing a racing stop, rather gliding to a gradual stop with a hint of snow plough.

@nickH, Mid-March conditions have been excellent in the recent seasons. The first week of March is still high season - it gets noticeably quieter after then. Fasching week appears to be 13-20/02/21, so no worries there - although it seems likely that any festivities are likely to be cancelled; also that crowds are unlikely to be a problem, even during peak weeks.

Thanks @tatmanstours, for the reassurance - I'll look into changing my tickets and at the accomodation options for March.

personally not a fan of catered chalets, as a food lover I want to try different restaurants

@ribblevalleyblue, that comment inspires me to make a few recommendations, and perhaps start a mouth-watering discussion:
Schattberg Stub’n - mixed grill
Del Rossi - lamb chops
Hungry Deer - spare ribs, burgers
Soul House - spare ribs, burgers, fondues
Parma - pizzas
Il Desco - pasta
Kohlmais Stub’n - mixed grill
Hecherhuette - beef medallions, tiger prawns in garlic and chilli sauce, steaks, gulasch soup, fondues
Tiroler Buam - you name it!
Heirigenstube - ditto
Bergeralm - burgers, bacon and eggs, apfel/topfenstrudl
Hotel Peter - Felsensteak
That’ll do for starters!

Some great shouts there, must say though that to contradict a bit myself and ‘ I don’t like catering in house’ due to the first visit with my wife and 4 year old son this year, she wanted in house catering and we stayed for the first time in Hotel Kohlmais (your next door neighbour) and the food there was amazing and the best I have had in Saalbach, easily outshone the best 3 hotels I stayed in, Sonne, Art Kristiana and Alpinresort. Unfortunately it is for residents only I believe, as I would definitely want to dine there as a restaurant of choice if staying elsewhere.

@ribblevalleyblue, That's good to hear. We were invited in June to the opening party of their new outside bar and seated area (which is of course directly opposite the entrance to the Kohlmaisbahn gondola station, so picks up the walking and mountain biker trade). A lovely place to sit and have a few drinks, especially in the early evening when the sun is on that side of the hotel. They have very efficient electric patio heaters for when the sun goes down. We were treated to free drinks and nosh all evening, and we were certainly impressed by their sushi, vol au vents and mini-burger snacks. They're a nice, friendly family. I'll make a point of passing on your compliments about their food next time I run into any of them.

@tatmanstours, Just looking again at your restaurant list, at the Crazy Deer I would add the pulled pork burger as a must try, plus they have proper Dutch chip mayonnaise Very Happy
