Little resort big welcome - 14/03/2022

Niederau is a small resort with an amazing welcome Snow conditions were great, although this was as late as I would want to go, ski school gave our adult beginner a firm foundation of skills Not all the bars were open (just ending covid restrictions) but those that were welcomed us with open arms. Reasonable price food and drink Good ski bus service to Auffach and access to the larger area of the ski jewel Definitely one to return to

Apres Ski: 3/5

Quite small resort with some great runs - 14/02/2022

There are enough runs here for an intermediate skier to spend the day. Two very good red runs and two black runs with the latter having great views over the Tirol. I would say the blacks here are more a French standard red but are still challenging and fun. For beginners there are a couple of blue runs at the top which you can access through the gondola but beginners would then need to return by the gondola as the red down to the town would be a bit of a challenge. For more extensive skiing you need to head out on the regular bus service to Auffach which take 20 mins. From there you have access into Alpback and a great many more runs. We got our ski legs back at Niederau for the day and made use of the excellent restaurant at the top of the gondola. The following day heading out to Auffach. We had a bit of a white out day mid week with light snow and low cloud and so decided to stay in Niederau which was a good call at the time as the ski area was empty and we had the runs to ourselves. If you have had enough of French concrete and fancy some Austrian charm and food then you cannot go wrong with this resort. There are several apres ski bars that are popular at the end of the day and close to the gondola. We stayed at The Austria, a good family hotel with easy access to the slopes and bust stop. It also has a small pool and sauna. The ski hire shop is accessible from the hotel through the basement and is very convenient.

Apres Ski: 4/5
