I spent 6 days staying in the Hotel Hochfilzer (which I would highly recommend) in mid February 06. The Ellmau schischule, which is situated at the foot of the Astberg mountain, is fantastic with a range of fluent English speaking easy-going staff who are extremely capable skiers/snowboarders. Although the resort is not famed for being snow sure, this particular time the area was covered with powder in abundance. The ski demo on Thursday nights was also worth seeing!
