Having just spent 4 weeks in Neustift I would VERY highly recommend it for a holiday! I think the glacier was closed all of 4 days for the entire month! They had regular overnight dumps and it is a very welcoming resort... especially Marty and Tamar in The Dorf Pub! It is compact enough that you can keep the group together but still has a wide variety of piste to explore... you should definitely check it out!
