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 :-)

Thanks to all who gave me advice on this resort we are going on the 25th of feb and we are really looking forward to it as i think it will really compliment our skiing as we like nice cruising runs. Can anyone tell me what the long blue run down to [i think it's called vorderglen] is like and where is the lift to take you back up the slopes is it far away from the end of the run. I don't know if any other snowheads will be out there i'm sure there will be, fingers crossed that the snow keeps good for us. Very Happy

andyarmitage, well done, you'll love it snowHead The long blue run to Vorderglemm is lovely, a quite wide path through the woods for most of it, you'll have to dodge the beginners traversing from side to side. The last bit drops off the path and gets quite mogully and is steepish but very wide. It's a bit of a leg killer after 7 kms. The station for the gondola back up is right there at the end. Enjoy Very Happy

It certainly is. For intermediate cruisers I can think of nowhere better that I've been. As Rachel says the long blue down to Vorderglemm has a lift waiting for you at the end. It takes you up the "Saalbach" side and is convenient for getting back to that village. You can't go back up to the top of where you just started. It is one of the few places in the circuit that is "one-way". snowHead

andyarmitage, where are you staying? There are a few Snowheads out there that week and we were looking to meet up on the Sunday for the rugby (if they're showing it). I'm sure we'll meet up at other times too as the resort isn't that big.

Just back from Saalbach. Was miserable as sin at my desk today Evil or Very Mad Had awesome week of near perfect conditions. Good base is still providing excellent skiing although week of sun has created some icy spots but nothing for concern. Hope you get more snow in next couple of weeks before you arrive.

We chose Alpenhotel over Saalbacherhof but from what I remember they looked very similar in the brochure and I have not got a bad word to say about the Alpen so hopefuly you will experience the same level of comfort, welcome, service, and food. Very Happy

Adamski, we'll be watching the Saturday games too as we should be there by about 1.30. Like you said, we'll swap numbers nearer the time - only 3 and 1/2 weeks and counting!!

hayley t, I know you are an avid rugby fan, but even I would forego the England v Wales game if I was in Saalbach, and I'm a WRU coach! Sorry, but I'd be coming down Bernkogel rather than sat in a bar watching the rugby, particularly as the conditions will probably be superb.

Peter B, but we can have our cake and eat it! I don't think we will have time to squeeze in some skiing on Saturday afternoon by the time we get ourselves sorted, but KO on Sunday is at 4pm (CET) so we can ski all day and stagger off the slopes into the pub just in time for rugby!

Alos seen there's snow forecast for sunday - so here's hoping Monday will be a powder day!

bexstar, welcome to snowHeads! snowHead

We came back from Saalbach a couple of weeks ago and really loved the place and the skiing. Can't recommend any restaurants as we had half-board - I don't think there are that many restaurants in Saalbach as most hotels are HB. I think you could eat at the restaurant of our hotel, the Saalbacher Hof, as a non-resident but I think it was expensive. Fab food there though! Enjoy! snowHead

bexstar, we stayed in Hinterglemm but ate in Saalbach one night. I can thoroughly recommend the restaurant at the Bauer hotel. Also, try some Austrian red wine there - it's surprisingly good!

Also- one more thing.. we are hiring a car from salzburg and driving over to the resort.. anyone done the drive before? How long should it take us? About an hour and a half? Anything we need to watch out for?

bexstar, dunno about last week but we were there the week before and the conditions were excellent, helped by a dump of 30 cms mid-week. I don't think you'll have anything to worry about. We went by coach from Salzburg & took about an hour & half, cutting across a corner of Germany.

Bexstar, you couldn`t have chosen a better resort.

Apres ski immediately after skiing - Hinterhagalm on Blue 52 - very Austrian, cheesy and jolly.

Night life: Castellos, something or another `an Triff`, and Arena. There a glass fronted place with a cage suspended above the bar - not nearly as seedy as it sounds (though if you wants seedy try the Yeti)

Restaurants in town: didn`t bother with - we were on half board. There was one place at the bottom of the nursery slopes - possibly called Bauersskialm (just next door to the umbrella bar) which serves excellent food. Someone also recommended Peters but I didnt make it.

Mountain restaurants all v. good - Xandlstadl on red 6a was excellent.

The journey from Salzburg to the resort is about 1.25 hours. Good roads. Easy journey.

Snow last weekend was pretty good. Got a bit chopped up in the afternoon but the groomers worked hard overnight.

Have a brilliant time. I`m very envious.

My wife and I'll be there that week as well. I think I made some drunken promise that my wife would buy a round for some snowheads (or something like that). Guess we'll need to figure out where and when. More seriously, Is there a relatively convenient way of traveling to and from Salzburg for a day trip? We won't have a car.

You will be glad to know that prices are quite reasonable, at least by some standards. The Jaegermeister miniatures are around €2 each. You wouldn't want anything else would you? Lowest number pays locally!
