Skiing in Austria

  • January 25, 2014 · 2:00 AM
  • Eindhoven

Skiing turned to be an addiction for me:) Along the years I have developed sympathy towards Austrian´s resorts. What I find attracting there are the endless slops, virgin snow and the worm welcomeness from local folks.

Well one of these magic places is Fulpmes (Middle Tirol), small town with wooden houses just next to the slops.

This Winter I am planning to go there again and everyone passionate about skiing, mountain trekking or long distance traveling is more then welcome to join me.

    Hello, I have spoted two basic apratments (no sauna) for rent in Fulpmes area for 4 folks each. I can see they have sat TV, but Wifi is not mentioned.

    There is required deposit of 100 EUR in advance (25 per person). Here I need your support !?

      Hi Natalia, I will post pictures of what I have found later today

    • Natalia

      Looks that we need apartments which can accommodate 6 people, do you have any proposal, can you share?

      January 6, 2014

  • Carlson

    Michele also considers to drop off. There are no signs of interest from Tatiana as well. The team so far is Natalia, Saida, Eli, Widi, and I - 5 people so far. Let me know if I miss someone?

    Folks --- Unfortunately I am going to be in the USA until the 26th at which point I must return to work. So, I don't think I can make this trip, as it turns out. So so sorry. Sounds like a blast of course. I would be most interested in something later in Feb or early March, even if for a long weekend.

    • Carlson

      Thanks for letting us know! Take care

    Dear all, I am glad to find your meetup group. This time I cannot attend your ski holiday but if there will be some proposals for end-January until the end of the season I will be more than happy to attend. Have fun if you manage to go now in January!

    January 3, 2014

    • Carlson

      Hey, Cristina! Indeed this group is really cool for outdoor activities. I am sure there will be other initiatives till the end of the winter season

    Hello all! Deep positive moments on the NYE and best wishes for the new comming 2014!

    Thomas and Saida, did you have time to check monterosa place?

    December 30, 2013

  • Carlson

    Please give me your opinion on accommodation place. I am searching from the catalog I have sent you. Writing an email is always better, but let's avoid asking the same place twice . This is not gonna help lowering the rent

    December 28, 2013

    • Carlson

      Getting the bus should not be an issue

      December 30, 2013

    • Carlson

      I am about to check few apartments for 4 people , to see what we can get there

      December 30, 2013

  • Carlson

    Snowwise Stubai has snow all year long

    December 28, 2013

  • Carlson

    Monterosa is still an option. I can see Michele I quite, may be the others can give a try on checking strategic accommodation there?

    December 28, 2013

  • Carlson

    Party wise Stubai is better. Price wise Fulpmes is better.

    December 28, 2013

  • Carlson

    Being close to the slops is relative, because Fulpmes is 20 min by bus from Stubai. If we go close to Stubai, then we may travel 20 min down to Fulpmes.

    December 28, 2013

  • Carlson

    If we go there, I can imagine that superpass will give us freedom to change slops accordingly

    December 28, 2013

  • Carlson

    There are also two types of skipasses - super pass valid every where, and local one, valid for schlick2000 only

    December 28, 2013

  • Carlson

    In Jan temperature can drop down to -22 degree and also weather can be windy and fogy . In this conditions Stubai is partially or fully closed. The alternative is schlick2000.

    December 28, 2013

  • Carlson

    Natalia, if we choose fulpmes area, there are two places for skiing- stubai is bigger, with higher altitude .Shlick2000 is lower land, somehow smaller in terms of slopes.

    In case anyone is interested ... Austria got a pounding yesterday/today:

    Stubaier-Gletscher:
    http://www.onthesnow.com/tyrol/stubaier-gletscher/skireport.html

    200cm in the last 48hrs. YIKES!

    December 28, 2013

  • Carlson

    As I am continuing with my search for best accommodation, the idea of renting two apartments for 4 people seems more and more reasonable to me.

    This will reduce the morning pressure in front of the WC/Shower and if it is in the neighbourhood we easily can get together before approaching the slops.

    It seems with this option we can drop the price down to 15/night/person.

    December 27, 2013

    • Natalia

      Chalet for 8 might be an option as well, any option in a walking distance from the slopes?

      December 27, 2013

  • Carlson

    Mary Christmas, Folks! I hope you are having good time and the joy is with you:)))

    In a mean while I am working hard on finding nice place to stay in Fulpmes. I am looking for the period from Jan.25th till Feb.1st (7 nights). Here is the best place I have found so far http://www.stubai.at/en/unterkuenfte/online_dar_list_rd-t?zbookOnly=1&page=2

    It is one building with two apartments for 2 and 6 people respectively. Showers, WC, and kitchens are present, breakfast is not included here!

    It is 10 min from shlick2000 ski pastas and 30 min from Stubai arena (by free local bus)

    From what I have seen so far the price range will be about 25 EUR/night. I will need your 20% (from 175 EUR) contribution for the booking. You can send it to me by bank trasnfer NL75ABNA[masked]

    Yes, tell me

    Inken, I hope issue will be for no long around you. If you like there is weekend ski initiatives in winterberg. This may be good alternative

    December 16, 2013

  • Carlson

    Do you think of getting travel insurance? It is good to have one.

    December 16, 2013

  • Carlson

    Saida, I wonder if you like to help Michele with checking Monte Rosa place?

    December 16, 2013

  • Carlson

    Let's say end of this week we will make our choice.

    December 16, 2013

  • Carlson

    It was good meeting yesterday. We have better view on the coming ski perspectives . I will go ahead with choosing accommodation in fulpmes. Michele will check possibilities in monterosa. It seems second option is gaining speed now. When we have clear view on the accommodation we should agree where we are going and book

    December 16, 2013

  • Carlson

    My Sunday afternoon proposal is for Coffee Bru (Beukenplein 14H, 1091 KG AMSTERDAM). I can be there at 15:00. Can you make it?

    Nothing like a nice long bike ride when you are nursing a massive hangover ....

    December 13, 2013

  • Carlson

    Every one is up for this idea as plan b?

    December 12, 2013

  • Carlson

    Transportation in terms of timing and expenses is appox. The same. It would be nice if we can check the accommodation and ski pass prices.

    December 12, 2013

  • Carlson

    I wonder if we start to work on second plan addressing monterosa

    December 12, 2013

  • Thomas L.

    Monterosa is a great idea! +1

    1 · December 12, 2013

  • Michele

    Hi Carlson,
    Sunday is good also for me. Where could we meet?

    About Monterosa: I have been several times, and it's wonderful, full of routes and accomodations. Mostly of the routes and skilifts are fully interconnected.

    Champoluc - Val D'Ayas is the best part of Monterosa ski.

    December 11, 2013

  • Carlson

    I have found MonteRosa place, Italy (http://www.monterosa.com/) as very atractive, but never been there.

    Does someone of you know this place? It is approx. same distance (850 km) and with about 180 km of slops.

    December 11, 2013

  • Carlson

    I have found some interesting links

    Accomudation (from page 8 on):
    http://www.stubai.at/pdf/download_dokumente/gastgeber-13_14.pdf Pricelist for ski-pass, covers about 250 km slops

    Please, have a look on what is under offer and let´s discuss it?

    December 11, 2013

  • Carlson

    Tatiana and Saida, I am not hearing anything from you, are still in?

    December 9, 2013

  • Natalia

    Hey All, to start with the organization I've created the spreadsheet. Please, enter your details
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aqm-un_Yt-iRdEp6dTNyNWw2Z21WdU9HWUt5YnpFVFE&usp=sharing

    December 9, 2013

    • Natalia

      I assume we will rent apartment and stay in the room of 2 prs per room

      December 9, 2013

  • Carlson

    Let´s decide on the trasportation. How you like to get there?
    It seems we have at least 2 cars available so far and we are 6 people so far. if we travel 4 per car, the travel expences should be around 50EUR return per person

    December 9, 2013

    • Natalia

      by car and let me know if I need to pick up people in Brussels

      December 9, 2013

  • Carlson

    I am about to stop my mobile and move on mobile internet. This means [masked] will be not available after december! You can contact me on Blagomir.Donchev (Skype) from now on

    December 9, 2013

  • Carlson

    The bus option must somethig like 100 EUR return, night drive. Good side of this option is there is no changes. It is straight to the point.

    December 9, 2013

  • Carlson

    Hello I have chacked the train option it is gonna be around 180 EUR return per person, traveling time ~1 night + 1/2 day. Didn´t see direct train.
    There is at least one change in Germany.

    December 9, 2013

  • Natalia

    Hey guys, I will most probably join you and I have a big car (can fit the ski equipment + 2 extra persons) but I will drive from Brussels. 2 persons can take the train to brussels and then I will pick them up...

    I wonder if Tatiana was able to check the bus option?
