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 :-)

Its amazing how the Hecherhuette survives being halfway down a piste that is closed for half the season

@Chick, ... or even most of the season. Jarmila tries very hard to compensate during the summer. Her food and weekly all you can eat barbecue evenings are renowned. Also her swimming pool is a great spot to while away a sunny afternoon in summer.

What an excellent couple of days. Cold temps and sunshine making for excellent skiing. Hochalm area still proving to be fantastic and better snow than most other parts of the valley, coupled with deserted pistes. Winkler Alm served the best burger I think I've ever had yesterday. Off piste looking very bare however on piste conditions are just awesome

@boabski, agreed, spent all afternoon on the Kohlmais, testing a pair of new skis, and the piste conditions don’t get any better.

Three friends arrived from the U.K. today. At the U.K. airport they were told “no FFP2 mask, no flight”. They were glad I’d passed on the above piece of advice.

Sorry if this pisses anyone off, but the skiing conditions today were just fantastic, as good as I’ve ever known them: sunny, cold, powdery pistes, and gloriously uncrowded. @radar, would you concur?


Fingers crossed it's as good in 2 and a bit weeks' time when we are due to arrive! Like a kid and Christmas counting down the sleeps......

I'm excitedly counting down the weeks too! You're a week ahead of me, i'm going in 3 weeks now. I hope the lovely conditions continue for you all, but mostly for me Laughing Razz

A few pages back someone asked about the new link on the Bernkogel to the Shattberg X-press, we did it a couple of days ago, its a good addition avoiding the walk through town and makes getting the bus or connecting to the X-press a lot easier, though the snow was firm the first section was fine, the bottom section was staring to have a channel forming, in spring its going to get quite churned up, I can imagine that beginners will find it a challenge and experienced skiers will need to take care, the end is interesting with the drinks hut next to the exit.

@snorks, came down it again today, a different experience as it was later in the day, 3.30pm very rutted in the las 50 meters and the bend was interesting, we stoped for a drink at the little bar at the bottom (quite a nice experience ) there was a bang as someone lost control and headed into the barrier in the photo, not sure if it was lack of skill or too much Apre, it was around 4 by this time. speaking to the bar owner Christmas and new year was interesting! I do think its a good addition makes getting the bus a lot easier.

There is a better solution, just snowboard, makes walking much easier. Lights the blue touch paper and steps back.

Not wishful thinking at all if the current forecast is anywhere near correct.

Over half a metre of snow tomorrow through Sunday (heaviest on saturday which could be fun if transferring) followed by full sun as far as the forecast goes

Any recommendations for kids ski school in Saalbach please? Looking for half day lessons for a week for a 7 year old, all I am being offered by tour operators are full day only.

Any help would be appreciated.

@TopGooner, much depends on current snow conditions and whether piste 168 to Viehhofen is open. That piste takes you directly to the Zell am See Xpress gondola and would probably take around 45 mins from Saalbach (3-4 lifts, depending on route chosen).
If piste 168 is closed, as it often is (being the lowest in the Ski Circus and having no snow-making on it), you would get to the Zell am See Xpress by a short (8 minute) ski bus ride from the Schönleitenbahn lift station. That bus runs every 10 minutes throughout the skiing day.
To reach the Schönleitenbahn lift station from Saalbach, you would either go up the Schattberg Xpress gondola and ski down pistes 2/2a (total about 30 minutes), or go up the Kohlmaisbahn gondola, followed by piste 156, then the Magic 6er chairlift, then pistes 165 and 161a (total about 40 minutes).
The Zell am See Xpress gondola itself is quite a long ride, so about another 15 minutes to get to the top of the Schmittenhöhe above Zell am See.

@scoman, full day is the norm for group lessons, and Furstauer is the only ski school in Saalbach that offers group lessons. The alternative might be a couple of days or half days of private lessons (in which case I might be able help).
