Full review

We have now visited Schladming several times in the summer and winter. Our experience has been excellent every time! Winter - the snow and lift systems are excellent , with improvements being made all the time - especially over the last year and the next few years because they will be hosting the 2013 World Cup - winning the bid last year. Every January, they host the Mens Nightrace which is televised and has a superb atmosphere. There is such a warm welcome in this town from the local people, and the mountain restaurants are excellent - with over 46 across the huge skiing area and many more in the village. All provide a variety of food and cater for all tastes. Fantastic snow last season and wide variety of skiing over the whole Amade ski area - linking the 4 mountains Lively Apres ski in the Tenne at the bottom of the main Planai lift and also apres ski at the top when the lifts stay open to transport skiers back to the village. We loved the wide range of activities, tobbogganning - excellent , really long run and a great indoor/ outdoor pool in the village with saunas etc to soothe the limbs after skiing! We were staying in the Planai 200 apartment advertised on the Schladming/dachstein tourist wesite and loved it because it was so accessible to everything, skiing, restaurants and pool. Location location! We also went in summer and couldn't believe the number of summer activities. Walks of course - Wlde Wasser, wonderful waterfall walks, glacier skiing, ice palace tour, rope activities at the top of the planai , great outdoor pool, canoeing, rafting, horse riding and of course their wonderful cycle paths - so totally safe ! Also really close to the lakes in the area - Hallstatt was really beautiful to visit, ice caves and only 50 minutes into Salzburg. Really love it here and can't wait to return!!
