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 :-)

If anyone is interested in brightening up their home/apartment/student digs, whatever, or if you just want a souvenier of your trip to our area, I found this great British Artist who knocks out Retro ski posters at a tenner a peice. He has Flachau/Wagrain/Alpendorf available.

@RedandWhiteFlachau, ..... not strictly Amada but your local knowledge would be appreciated..

What's the best/easiest way to get from Salzburg Hbf to Obertauren on public transport. The train to Radstadt looks like they take hour?

@Gaz_H, Depends on how many in your party. 4 or more then book a local taxi, approx €50 each way pp. If your travelling on your own, then by bus. 511 Salzburg HBF to Untertauren then change on to the 280 to Obertauren. 280 bus from Radstadt if you take the train.

Bought across from the old thread on behalf of '@Chick, '

"Any opinions on Wagrain for a week in January for 3 fellas.
We have stayed in Flachau, Schladming and Bad HOFFGASTEIN before as well most other resorts in Austria.Looking for somewhere we haven't been before and also with a bit of life."

@Chick. Wagrain is a bit quieter than your other options and you haven't said when you last stayed in the Snowspace Area. New lifts out of Wagrain include the new Flying Mozart and Panoramabahn which (IMHO) make Wagrain the ideal central location to maximise your skiing. Plenty of apartments available in January at reasonable rates.
As for Apres, as this isn't your first Rodeo, you'll know that most Apres happens on or at the bottom of the slopes. Best spot in Wagrain is probably the Kuhstall at the bottom of the Flying Mozart run. In the village there's the Riverside Bar, Tenne Bar, The PeopleZ (sic) Bar, Joe's Pub and a few others, but last (COVID) season they didn't all open. Restaurant choices are not as good as Flachau but the California Steak House does what it says on the tin.

In summary, for shortest transfers, wider nightlife choice, largest ski area in the Ski Amade and winter ambience I'd go for Flachau over Wagrain for your demographic.

Hi, considering a vacation at Schladming on Dec. 17-24. How crowded is the resort expected to be that week? And do they usually open all the lifts/pistes the week before Christmas (snow-permitting of course) or do they have a habit of saving the best for the holidays? Cheers.

@chenav, Currently the Eastern end from Hauser Kaibling is scheduled to open from 02 Dec 22. The first full opening week will be the 17-24 Dec 22. As Christmas falls on the Sunday this year, we would expect that week to be a "High Season" week but I doubt it will be anywhere near as busy as the following week. With good snow the resort will want to open as much as possible.

Transport Update. There is still no news on the resurrection of the dedicated Salzburg to "Snowspace" Bus for the 22/23 Ski Season and Post Bus timings are not great. But for those looking at Public Transport options, the easiest is still the Bus-Train-Bus option.

For Saturday Transfers:

Buses run from Salzburg Airport to the Salzburg HBF every 15 mins or so and cost €2-4. The trip takes 10-15 mins depending on traffic.

Trains from Salzburg HBF to Altenmarkt, Radstadt or Schladming direct take between 1hr 16 and 1hr 34 Mins. Cost varies depending on Class and day of the week, but expect to pay around €18.60 (Standard Fare on Trainline). There are several, departing at: 08.16, 12.16, 16.16, 18.16 and 20.16.

The Post Buses from Radstadt station are free with your lift pass (not that they check much in winter) and buses usually "meet" the trains. So from there 30 Mins to Flachau with stops along the way including Radstadt, Altenmarkt and Reitdorf. You may need to change buses to get to Eben and Wagrain but they're all linked with minimal waiting time.

Hope this helps those travelling independently.

Thanks RWF, I’ve just booked for Ski Amadé in mid Jan. I’ll have a car (hopefully!) but you never know, I might need alternative transport.

My ‘my Ski Amadé’ card arrived last week, just waiting for the time I can buy the lift pass to go on it. Hopefully the pound might have bounced back a bit by then!

@japes1275, love the my amade card. I bought the annual ticket in July so had summer lifts and also avoided the winter price increase.

@japes1275, @holidayloverxx, I'm hoping they've made the "My Ski Amade" cards a bit more robust for this season. Last year none of ours (4) actually worked when it came to using them on the Automatic Gates and we had to resort to the older Season Pass cards. Now that might have been somehting to do with all the COVID stuff so fingers crossed it will be sorted for this year.
