Good for intermediates - 10/02/2020

We stayed at Das Alpenhaus in Bad Hofgastein for a week. Unfortunately while we were there we had two days of high winds and heavy snow during which the lifts did not operate to the main skiing areas so we lost two days of skiing - we were able to claim a refund on our lift pass for one of the two days. I don’t know how common this is in this resort. We did however have four days of good skiing and there were plenty of long red and blue runs. The long run from the top of the Schlossalm was good fun with spectacular scenery. Had we had a full week’s skiing then we might have found that the amount of slopes was more limited. The hotel was pretty good - very convenient location for the slopes so we didn’t need to use the bus. The spa facilities were excellent. The food was mostly good - excellent breakfast buffet and a choice of meat, fish and vegetarian main courses each night for evening meal - as well as soup, salad and a starter and dessert so we could have had a five course meal each night if we’d wanted to. A couple of the evening meals were not to our taste. I don’t think you go to Bad Hofgastein for great apres Ski but we found a couple of bars to have a drink or two on our way back from the slopes. It was a pleasant holiday if not exceptional and our opinion was definitely affected by not being able to ski for two days.

Apres Ski: 3/5
