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 :-)

@radar, clearly I should‘ve motivated myself and gone out. But had decided on a day of rest after a tiring evening and an uncomfortable night on a camp bed.

@tatmanstours, we weren’t expecting much from today and very pleasantly surprised.
You will have to explain the camp bed when we meet

Yeah the run over to Leogang in the morning on Friday was beautiful, on the way back about 1pm it was getting heavy and bumpy.

The run back to Saalbach was good 164 off the top, which can be chewed up was in the best condition I’ve seen it for some time, 152 into town was soft and lumpy .

we didnt start out until 12.30 ish but as you say the local runs were much better than we thought they might have been . we ended up in the panorama alm igloo and found ourselves in the middle of a group of norwegians hell bent on taking advantage of the fact that lager and shots are a1/4 of the price as in their home town so was a steady run home in the evening dusk. Qne of the most endearing things about saalbach is how if youve a mind to join in all the different nationalities welcome you in particular the dutch and the scandinavians, weve made many friends/ acquaintances some we see returning over the years

Heading out Saturday, very last minute booking, hoping there is not too much rain or that it is at least falling as snow higher up! Updates from those there very much welcome.

The conditions today were terrible - torrential rain at times, and rain-soaked snow all the way up. For perhaps the first time ever I did only one run from the top of Kohlmais to the mid-station and then downloaded on the gondola. It was like skiing through treacle.
But, tomorrow might be a very different story - subzero temperatures tonight and tomorrow, with new snow. Could be what the doctor ordered.

Turning my thoughts to booking for a pre Christmas week. Flights booked going out 16th goig 23rd Dec. I am eyeing up a ski in ski out place in Saalbach....

I have just checked out this thread looks like that week was good this season as was that lovely cold snap just before Christmas heatwave?

I know this is really up there with what are the lottery numbers for this weekend but how snow sure?

@NickyJ, we have been coming around those dates since 2016 haven’t had a problem so far , there will be small number of runs that might not be open but there has been plenty to ski, Tatmantours will certainly vouch for that .

@tatmanstours I’m
Currently in Mayrhofen. Was torrential rain at village level yesterday. Pushed up to 2000m heavy snow, mid afternoon cloud lifted, absolutely glorious and deserted. I think the rain had scared people away! I need to head home today, interested to hear how Saalbach has shaped up as heading out there on 30th, night time temperatures due to plummet this week (although very warm in day), and it looks like more snow on way.

As you might expect, higher up is pretty decent, 2000m down to middle is pretty slushy. There’s always the bus up to Hintertux, webcams showing -10c there!
In Mayrhofen I was sat in the town having a beer in just a T-shirt on Monday afternoon!

Back to January weather today! A few cm of new snow at village level, and obviously more higher up, have transformed the situation. The temperature has also dropped into minus figures, freezing the previously slushy pistes and causing ice.
The Steinberg run down to the valley in Leogang was in reasonable condition. It was lightly snowing all the way back to Saalbach. Piste 152 down to the village was a revelation - better than I’ve seen it for a very long time, if not all season.

@NickyJ, I’ve been arriving in Saalbach pre-Christmas every season since 2006/7. For many years I’ve aimed to arrive around 10th December. Next season I plan to arrive by the end of November. In only two or three seasons has the snow cover been poor, and even then I was able to ski on upper pistes on Christmas Day.
In times of snow drought, affecting all resorts in the area, or even across the Alps, Saalbach has managed well, thanks to its heavy investment in snowmaking.

A restaurant recommendation, we have eaten twice at Il Desco, up by the Otzi bar, it’s part of the Panther hotel, the cooking is done by a lovely Italian couple, if you have their Lasagna then you won’t need breakfast!

@radar, that’s interesting. I think that restaurant gets somewhat overlooked, although it’s been in business for many years, so it must get enough trade. I did eat there once, many years ago, and I remember that the pasta was very good.

On our way home after a ten day trip which other than a couple of 1/2 days of rain stopped play our trip was again great. This was the first time in over 10 years in saalbach that we have lost any significant piste time due to the weather . The pistes allowing for the weather were very well kept, we didnt ski over a rock ,bare patch or severe ice ,even the runs to the villages were all complete even if not perfectat the bottom , The only slight dissapointment was the run down to viehofen was bare .The piste management was simply brilliant bearing in mind the lack of natural snow this season .Our post skiing pre dinner apres was again great fun where ever we went mainly bergeralm, panoramaalm on the way home , hinterhag, burgis, eva alm etc later although coming down the last bit from the hinterhag was eventful.( glad father xmas brought me a head torch a couple of years ago),As for lunches, coffee stops, drinks etc up in the mountains all the places we went to offered good food and service at sensible prices ,we particularly liked forstofalm down in leogang astizs etc , the wallgalem was fun with a singer over lunch time though wasnt the advertised michala.We didnt make it to fieberbrun this year so will have to make plans for next , cheers all

As a cockney holiday rep in Saalbach said to me in late March many years ago, “there’s always one more damp”.
Just had a cancellation for the first week of April, if anyone’s looking for an apartment.

Love spring skiing! As long as the sun is out don’t mind early skiing and late lunch early finish, sunbath/swimming pool. Best of both worlds whats not to love!
