Full review

We have just returned from our first ski trip to Filzmoos, and will definitely go back. The slopes is superb for families, intermediate skiers and begginers. With no Black runs it means that the whole mountain is a joy to explore. The pistes are wide yet varied and were kept in great condition. We stayed at the Alpenkrone Hotel and can't fault its staff and facilities. What better way to relax than enjoy the free pool and steam room. We were unable to sample much nightlife as there is no bus from the Hotel into town, past 5.15pm, although my days of staying out late then skiing the day after are well and truly gone. Nothing is perfect so please note that Austria is a tad expensive with a half of lager at 3euros. Also the lack of public transport after 5 pm from town to the hotel puts a halt to any "apres ski". The taxi cost just shy of 10 euros each way. One of the high points are the mountain top cafes. They are traditional wood, and the staff are excellent. For those who enjoy an elevenses of "gluwien" or hot choc, and lunch (dinner to northerners) of cracking goulash, this is the resort to go to. Cant wait to go back and use the skis I bought on the last day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
