After having been to Damuls 40 years ago we decided to enjoy a week's skiing there again. The skiing and snow is fantastic , some of the lifts are getting a little too old and are slow. But the new lifts are very nice. For experienced skieérs there are some interesting decents. Lot of ski tours and off piste possibilities... More

Slopes were well groomed. Lifts were new and did not break down. We skied on the Saturday which was awful due to all the locals coming up and it being very busy and people skiing far too fast.

Good Ski lift system from Uga, not the over expensive ski pass. Good signage, friendly mountain huts and fabulous scenery. Red runs seem ok but unfortunately all blue runs involve long flat stretches and even uphill terrain in places. ( Skiers using sticks to push themselves uphill ). Unless you are skilled at uphill snowboarding dont bother !

Liked it again this year. There could have been more snow- and at 10am in the morning 2 snow guns were still running. Coming down to Damüls after lunch you feel that artificial snow on the runs. However there are a number of great runs, in different colours (blue/ red/ black) that are challenging. And on the top- don't miss... More

Thankfully undiscovered by most tourists this resort caters for most weekenders from Austria and Germany. Except at New Year it is very quiet during the week and you can put in some real serious miles. It's a decent size at just over 100km of piste and with varied terrain. Great for the kids - we've been coming here for 8... More

Then again, compared to France or Switzerland this ski area is not that big. If you want to go on a social ski trip, Austria is the place to be. Loads of different restaurants and bars there. Lot of social drinking between or after skiing. Both villages are still old villages but a lot of houses have been added. They... More

So..."Snowiest village in the world". After reading that on the internet and reading that a new gondola connected the resort to other surrounding resorts I just had to check this place out. It wasn't as large as the resorts I normally visit, mainly distance from peak elevation to bottom, but it all worked out. While the runs were shorter, they... More
