“Great fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

We went during half term and although the slopes we extremely busy at times we had amazing fun, the blues and reds we challenging enough for intermediate skiers and not too difficult for beginners. However naturally towards the bottom of the mountain, slopes were mushy and muddy (which is understandable considering this winter has been one of the warmest in decades).

“Good ski runs.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

There a re a number of good and mixed runs over this area.
During our stay in March 2014 the weather was very warm and sunny and unfortunately this badly affected the show and made it very challenging in the afternoons. This was a shame as we have really enjoyed the area on previous visits.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Bars, scenery, gondola. All fantastic. Beware in Schnapps Bar. We bought drinks, but took water bottle out of pocket for comfort and left on table while we had our drinks. Very stroppy owner just shouted and confiscated it!

“Cheif of chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Schmittenhohe ... We tended to go up the mountain and go to the bar facing the little church it was brilliant!! they had a large outside bar with music being played by a DJ from Classical to heavy rock, people dancing on the top of the bar and to the right of this was an older guy with long hair and an indian feather stuck in a hairband, serving hot rotisseried chicken which was soooooo good! Fabulous atmosphere every time we went there, would definately recommend this bar for the fun party they create.... well done.

“Beautiful skiing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Whilst not sufficiently testing for those who crave ONLY the stiffest black runs, the ski fields are very well groomed and there is sufficient space for all on the lifts, provided that you avoid the usual holiday peak times and beware the local school holidays when the children from Vienna can be a pest.
