Lofer - great for beginners and intermediates - 12/01/2016

Lofer is about 40 mins from Salzburg, with good bus connection to other resorts. The main gondola from the village takes you up by 2 stages to a wide plateau. From here are the nursery slopes, and several lifts to a wide variety of blue and red runs. Everything comes back to this main area so it is great if you are a family, or a mixed ability group. Excellent ski schools operate at the top, and for beginners there are 2 slopes operating either side of a 'magic carpet' lift. Plenty of mountain restaurants and sunny terraces to take in the views, esp if you are a non skier, or just want an easy day. The ski hire shop by the main gondola also offers ski lockers for hire so you can store everything there. They are all extremely helpful and if something is not right, they will happily exchange. No big tour operators come to this resort so there is a nice mix of different nationalities. Accommodation varies from self catering, bed and breakfast to good hotels. It is easy to walk around the village, plenty of restaurants, bars..and cake shops. There are 3 supermarkets and a good deli, as well as clothing, toyshops and a few others. Off the slopes you can get the bus to Salzburg, Bad Reichenhall, Zell am See, St Johann and Kitzbuhel. The buses go from outside the tourist information, and in there they are very helpful too, with other suggestions of places to visit/things to do. You can also rent cross country skis, plenty of tracks, and also some lovely walks along by the river and along the valley. As it is a resort that a lot of people drive through in the way to other resorts, it is a bit of a hidden gem, uncrowded - unspoilt.

Apres Ski: 4/5
