Fabulous day in Schladming. Snow just softened on the sunny side of the Planai but was fast and crisp in the shade. Stayed on the mountain to watch the Sun go down.
We raised a glass to Samerberg Sue who will always be part of Ski Amade.

@cad99uk, we were there too today! I used Sues poles so a bit of her was skiing with us Smile
I really cant remember the last time I had such a great ski on Planai, the pistes were just incredible. Bobbed over to Haus where pretty much the same conditions, bit of low cloud as you hit the valley run, but pistes pristine and empty. Probably my last ski now before the crowds arrive so I really did enjoy ripping it a bit today Twisted Evil

@Kooky, It was such a great day to remember Sue. I like that her poles were on the mountain with us.

At midday everybody just evaporated and the pistes were totally empty.

@Scarpa, Returning to UK tomorrow unfortunately. M-i-l funeral next week. We have season passes and are due out in Feb/March but might get back before, work permitting.

Enjoy your season. Take care when you go off piste.... if there is any this year.

@Chick, to be honest any if them would be OK, but depends on your budget. Some people here stayed at the Flachauerhof , which I thought looked a bit dated, and thought it was great. Salzburgerhof looks OK too, with spa , as has Tirolerhof and Waidmasnnsheil. Hard to go wrong I think.

@Chick, thats near me. Great location for getting up tbe mountain and apres, a few minutes walk back from the dampfkessel at the spacejet. About 10 to 15 mins walk to tbe centre....ive got short legs. You can cut across the fields which brings you out at the musistadl.

Go back to the main road and turn left...5 mins to best pizza in Flachau and rhe mpreis supermarket . Turn right instead and its 5 minutes to Paulerei, jagdhof, alter neuwirt and schnitzel eck. 5 more minutes to the centre.

Which hotel?

Today I met seany1 and together we enjoyed a great day in the Hochkönig area, skiing the Königstour from Maria Alm to Mühlbach and back again. The weather was again fabulous, pure blue skies and sun though chilly in the shade. Here's a view taken early in the day looking to the Hochkönig range from the top of the Aberg above Maria Alm...



A little later we enjoyed piste 31 down to Hinterthal, so much so that we did it again in the afternoon. In the morning the snow cannons were blasting more snow onto the piste. The photo shows Hinterthal in the valley...



The snow, still largely artificial, was in good condition, mostly hard-packed but grippy. There were a few icy spots, especially on piste 14 which we skied on our return journey, leading down to Dienten alongside the Bürglalm chairlift (half the piste there was also blocked off for a FIS Giant Slalom race which took place in the morning - unfortunately the timing meant that we didn't watch any of the young racers).

After lunch at the Zapferl Alm this photo was taken near the top of the Karbachalm gondola which had brought back up from Mühlbach. The question for those who know the area is: What is missing?



The answer is the bridge that used to carry the Hüttenlift T-bar over piste 1 as it goes off to the left has been removed. I don't think that I ever saw that T-bar running.

Not every piste was open but the Königstour was complete and possible. The slopes are still very quiet.

A good day.

It was a great day...and conditions remain pretty amazing today considering this persistent weather pattern.....so much available and super quite. Home saturday then schladming on 7th jan for a week followed by wagrain on 19th jan for 10 days then flachau on 5th feb for another 10 days...hopefully some powder at some time... but with the superb work they do in Amade I am sure it will still be great....so anyone coming soon it should be pretty decent despite the forecast of little new snow. The amount of snow they were blowing yesterday gave a nice fluffy covering, and even the blacks were pretty much ice free!

@seany1, if you fancy a ski with us lot drop us a line, we are almost always out and about.

Lots of the locals are telling me we should get a small amount of snow on 24/25th, nothing to get hyped about, but a white Christmas would be great after last year Shocked

Kooky thanks a lot ....would be cool to meet up on my wagrain and flachau trips as on my tod....really hope you guys get some fresh. I was out mid december last year so know what you mean. At least though simular high pressure situation to last year its been colder allowing snow blowing giving some top to bottom skiing that thus far has been great...all relative of course but when you look at the situation in some areas my love of austria reaps the rewards..

Just waiting at Salzburg airport for the flight home after a great week in wagrain.

Conditions aren't perfect but they are pretty damn good.

Skied wagrain/flachau /Zauchensee and altenmarkt and pistes were in surprisingly good nick.

Anybody out there for Christmas should expect a good week.

seany1 and I were back again in the Hochkönig area today, this time joined by johnbarr. It was another great day's skiing, again from Maria Alm to Mühlbach and back again. I am always impressed by the view from the Abergalm chairlift going up out of Maria Alm...

Ye Ice-falls! ... silent cataracts!


There was more cloud around in the morning but that cleared up by midday, so that it was again pure blue skies and sun in the afternoon (though many of the pistes were in the shade). The slopes were still very quiet, so much so that we were the only diners in the Scheppal Alm at Mühlbach where we had lunch - and we were even given Christmas Plätzchen...



On the culinary front I can report another new hut, a very classy modern looking one. This is the Deantnerin hut on the Bürglalm piste 14 in Dienten (there is a description in German with more photos here: http://www.onetz.de/amberg-in-der-oberpfalz/freizeit/neue-huette-im-skigebiet-hochkoenig-zur-brotzeit-bei-den-grammers-d1712722.html). Looked inviting but we didn't test it...



And I can't resist a final photo of the evening sun on the mountains as we arrived back at Maria Alm...



The snow was fine everywhere, with probably less icy patches noticed than on Tuesday's visit. Whether it will stand up to the masses next week is another question but there should be a little new snow over the weekend.

Love that chair lift! I've got a feeling I went to that hut with Sue too. Must go back there at some point. But I also really want to go to the Gasteins for the first time, and to Dachstein West again.

@espri, possibly thinking of heading out on Tuesday. Do you think it's worth the trip or not? I'm sure it's going to be more busy this coming week. In your opinion is the snow going to hold up or is there not enough?

@Ricklovesthepowder, not in Ski Amade, but in Hinterglemm at the moment. Snowed overnight down to the village, was boot high in places up the top. Was fine most of the day down low too, although the temps in the villages increased as the day went on. It's been raining most of the evening and at times has been heavy. It'll be interesting to see what it's like tomorrow.
