This was the second time I spent my winter holiday at Berghof Sturmgut and already make plans to go there again next year or even this summer. It is my policy not to go to the same place twice, because if it was a nice one I don't want to be dissapointed and ruin my memories (it can happen when you go somewhere having high expectations) and of course there are so many places around the world to visit. Also, until Sturmgut, all the places I visited alone or with my family (and there are quite a few) had something I disliked enough not to ever want to go back (either the room, atmosphere, food, friendliness of hosts/staff, access to tourist sites etc.). So, I warmly recommend Sturmgut to all those wanting to spend an active holiday in a cosy, convenient place. There is everything there and most importantly the ski area is right around the corner, you don't have to put your equipment in the car every morning and gather your family at the same hour so you can travel distances to the slopes. Instead, you go down to the basement in your slippers, take your boots off the heated rack and your skis, go out the door and in a few meters you are right on the slope. Hinterstoder ski area is not huge (this is an advantage when you have kids as you reduce the risk of getting them lost), but there are enough options for all types of skiers and snowboarders. Snow is pretty much guaranteed from the end of December. It is well maintained, safe and not crowded. Sturmgut hotel is situated up on the hill in a very quiet spot with beautiful surrounding landscape: typical postcard mountain scenery. The rooms are very clean and practical (big closet and many other drawers and shelves). There is also a large variety of room types for all requirements. Food is plenty and tasty, and the hosts are very kind and pleasant. Prices are reasonable, lower than in other Austrain ski areas which might be popular, but tend to be overcrowded and commercial. In conclusion, I don't see what else you need for a perfect ski holiday with or without children.
