First time skiing in Austria. Our week started with no snow at all as the resort is low lying but later on there was plenty of snow. Most of the runs were reds and my goodness were they steep. I wouldn't say this resort is suitable for the beginner/early intermediate as there was only 2 blue runs open and they were both nervously icy and one was pretty narrow with areas of extreme steepness. Few queues and plenty of seats at lunchtime. I took a private lesson and the instruction was fantastic (Price £50-60 for 2 hours). People having group lessons also found the 2 ski schools really good fun. The village was pretty and quiet. There is only one Spar shop so no shopping or bakery for
