we are just back from our second trip to Scheffau, staying at the Alpin. We were beginners last year and essentially learnt to ski on ice, the conditions were so poor. This year however was amazing!!! As all the others mention, the skiing area is vast and had something for us all!!! There is zilch apres ski, which is disappointing for those who want a bit of action. Me, a couple of glasses of wine with my dinner with the fab grub in the lovely Alpin and I am happy to go off to bed at 11!!! Our kids (7&9) adore the hotel, the pool and the fun. it is really kid friendly and they have really progessed at skiing. Am already looking forward to next year!
