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 :-)

I went skiing at Hintertux today, and very nice it was, too! Very Happy

Hero snow down to the Tuxer Fernerhaus. Below that was fresh snow on a rocky base! Toofy Grin They were making snow down the red piste to Sommerberg, but it's nowhere near ready to open yet.
Above the Tuxer Fernerhaus was good cover. The Gefrorene Wand and Olperer sides were all open and half of the Kaserer side - though it looked like they were working on the farther Kaserer lift track, so maybe that will be opening soon.
There were a lot of race teams training, so the lifts first thing were quite busy. However, once everyone had dispersed the queues weren't bad and the pistes were fairly quiet.

You have to wear an FFP2 mask in the gondolas (not on the chairlift or T-Bars) - the lifties were looking and not letting people through the turnstiles without one.
3Gs (vaccinated, tested, recovered) were being checked at the entrance to the restaurant. They were scanning apps. but they were also happy to accept a photo of a vaccination card.

There's a photo from today here: It's the typical Hintertux photo of Olperer which has been taken thousands of times before Laughing

Great stuff SaraJ - sounds great. Mrs MA and I will (covid permitting) be doing a bit of an Austrian-glacier road trip for a week from 5th November.

We're flying to Salzburg and are planning on at least Hintertux and Kitzsteinhorn - maybe Stubai too.

Really can't wait as it will be our first trip to the Alps since we were there when the Tirol closed down in March 2020.

Was it busy in the Gletscherbus today? We were hoping it wouldn't be as we don't much fancy being crammed in in covid times...

@mountainaddict, In the morning they had the smaller gondolas (8er Sommerberg and 4er Fernerhaus) running too. We used those from the bottom and had the gondolas to ourselves. The Gletscherbus 3 was not crammed full. Everyone had a seat and, everyone kept their mask on for the journey. There was a queue for the lift but there was no urgency about it, people kept their distance and were quite chilled about waiting.
