WIDE OPEN PISTES - APRES LIVELY
PISTES PRETTY EASY.
I continue to come to this resort year after year. There are numerous wide sunny open runs, where anyone can look good. There is the odd steep black but not on a par with any French resort.
The on piste cafes are all traditionaly built and cosy, often with really big bread type ovens warming the cafes up.
Hinterglemm is quieter than Saalbach (Hinterhagenalm - Saalbach - is a must do - the place rocks from about 4.00pm onwards)
The Goastall in Hinterglemm is a great ski-to apres place with it's own "live goats" - you have to visit it to appreciate it's uniqueness and this place rocks for apres and into the early hours. It's walkable from the town centre up the piste.
I have never used the ski school but all the nursery slopes are easily accessible from the town centre and have main lifts nearby.
This is an attractive village, recently added buildings in the last 12 months have been sympathetically introduced and it's hard to comprehend that they have not been there for a lot longer. The place has a strong Austrian decorative feel..
All in all a definate must for those looking for a great apres scene and lots of skiing thats not too stressful on the nerves. I look forward to my trip already booked for 2011.
