How far from Soll to Scheffau?

SBurkwood posted Dec-2014 taking my first ever Ski Holiday in Soll over New Year (arrival 27 Dec). Bad research on my part because the lack of snow and green mountains wasn't quite what I had in mind.

How far is it from Soll to Scheffau? I understand Crystal will be putting on transfers.

Will the transfer become a massive inconvenience? Remembering that we are total beginners and will be having lessons for 5 days (am and pm).

It shouldn't be a big deal TBH; sounds as if Crystal will be doing their best to get you onto some snow, there'll be plenty of others in the same boat (bus) to chat to, and - unless you're super-fit - your first day on snow is going to be tiring so it's not critical that you get a full 8 hours of lessons.

An essential part of skiing is just going with what you've got, and being prepared to change plans. If every day was a powder day... they wouldn't be half as special as they are...

We are arriving tomorrow with a large party and Sheffau and Ellmau are the only skiable areas around Soll, both very close 10 mins on the bus.
Ski bus or Crystal ski transport who I hear have it all in hand and are doing a fine job at Soll.
See you in the Salvenstadl the apres ski will still be going on in Soll of that I have no doubt..

From memory of last year - it is only a 15-20 minute transfer.
Don't be hard on your research, just bad luck - we were there this time last year and the snow was fine - we were able to ski the whole Skiwelt area.
Scheffau is a really nice place for beginners. I'm sure you will have a great time.

It's encouraging to here of someone in the exact same boat as myself. I booked Soll through directski for myself and my girlfriend's (we've skied once before) after considerable research because it seemed like a great all-rounder. I am adament that this is still the case!

I arrive on Saturday the 27th so hopefully we'll get a dump before then but regardless, I'm sure it will be great craic!

The temperatures look like they're going to fall with much less overcast weather forecasted. Am I right in assuming that this will allow for more snow-making which would enable Soll to open more slopes? has confirmed Soll will open tomorrow with 3-4 lifts in operation.

Enjoy your trip SBurkwood!

For sure, Crystal will be operating a transfer to another area.

However, you have indicated that you are booked in for beginners ski lessons. Hence, I would email the ski school, and ask them what they propose to do.
