Full review

For many of us it was our first ski trip, although a few members had skied Canada for a season. We travelled to Scheffau from South Africa and arrived at a pictureque Austrian village - the type you'd find on a post card. We stayed at a privately run chalet - Chalet Heidi, which was a fantastic place. Run by an English couple, Mike and Caroline, it was the perfect chalet - friendly, excellent food, large and very comfortable. Our hosts could not do enough for us. We were lucky with the snow! The village was green when we arrived but we sang songs to help it snow - and it did, almost a metre overnight. The skiing was excellent, a vast resort with skiing for all abilities in our group. There were no lift queues and loads of Tirolean mountain restaurants (very reasonably priced) The experiened skiers amoungst us had some good off-piste skiing in the deep new snow. The lift system was very modern and went for ever in all directions! Apres ski was amazing in the red-bull bar at the foot of the gondola. Late night apres-ski doesn't really exist in Scheffau but we didn't care. Chalet Heidi pr0vided us with nightly entertainment! All in all Scheffau and Chalet Heidi provided us with an amazing ski trip.
