Great, vast ski resort

Vast ski area spanning several mountains with plenty of lifts and slopes for every skill level. Altough it is so big, it can still get extremely crowded on sunny winter weekends.

This was our second visit to the Damuls-Mellau ski area, famous for its heavy snowfalls. Our first day's skiing was in rain, our last in snow so heavy we couldn't ski, but in-between we had mostly decent conditions (plus an excellent day, in sunshine, in nearby Warth (on the same ski pass)). With the weather, we barely got over to... More

Billed the snowiest village in Europe, this snow resort is just 30 minutes from St Anton, but unknown to most. Inaccessible to coaches, Brits Abroad don't bother with it, leaving it to the German ski holidayers to enjoy year after year and keeping the secret to themselves. Fantastic resort with really warm and welcoming people / shops / restaurants in... More

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
