Balderschwang is a great ski resort for skiers of any experience, the runs are challenging and demanding but there are also a good selection of blues for skiers that are still building confidence. If you don't go over school holidays they are virtually empty. The Allgau ski resorts are a very well kept local secret in Germany and haven't been taken over by the tourists (yet). I've been to Balderschwang twice in early March and have decent snow on the mountain and very rarely were the snow cannons on, the runs are a combination of challenging and demanding black and red runs that would please even the most experienced of skiers. I actually enjoy the blue runs at this resort the most, they are still quite challenging but they weave through beautiful alpine forest and go on for miles. The resort is not as big as some of its Austrian counterparts, but like me, if you go to the Allgau region and spend a day at each of the resorts it's more than enough. The Apres ski is decent, there is a wicked bar at the bottom of the mountain that is heaving at the end of the day but it's only open over weekends. There are few 'pubs' scattered on the mountainside that will happily serve up famous German food and beer too. I usually base myself in the town of Sonthofen which has some decent nighlife.
