Hi there

Have just got back from Niederau on Saturday. The first couple of days we were there it rained on the lower slopes but was a blizzard and fog on the top slopes. However the snow was good. By the third day (Tue) it was a bit icy but we skiied Niederau again on the Thur and it was a bit better. We went to Auffach on the Wed and Fri and the snow was excellent. The bottom half of one of the black runs in Niederau (where the single seater chair lift is) was closed as it was supposed to be patchy. Hope this helps

Hi woodworm,

The conditions in Niederau today are nearly perfect (sunny, clear, cold and with enough snow to keep the pistes in great shape) although what they will be like by the 26th is probably only known to “Mr Admin” and his nearly constant streams of regularly updated information )

Joking aside the weather forecasts from this site are usually accurate for the next 24 hrs but looking further ahead things change and sometimes substantially.

If you would like a more detailed update, PM me closer to your departure date and I will let you know how it looks here on the ground.

If you havn't taken up drinking yet, you have a nice surprise awaiting you. Try Zipfer, in the Bichlwirt.

Remember Niederau has the north facing slopes, and together with the good run cuts through the trees, is worth 700/800 metres on other resorts, (I maintain that Niederau outpunches its weight, well height really!)

As long as Niederau retains some base, you will get good skiing. I have enough confidence to have booked my return flight 2 days after the season end on 6 April.

Apart from last year, and 1971, my winters there have been good ~ I did miss a couple of years when in the Antipodes, and a few when the kids were growing up.

Ski well.

By my count, there are at least twelve J2-ers in Niederau at this time, including me. Trouble is - how will you know if the guy/gal sat across from you in the gondola is a J2-er?

Apart from me, red anorak, legs together, "DAVE MAC" on ski hat, gluhwein, Zipfer, coffee, paint brush or guitar in right hand.

Make that another 8 Dave Mac,We go there on 19th Jan.
I first skied Niederau many years ago and have since introduced my family and friends to one of my favorite places,This is the 3rd visit in 3 years.
My son learnt to ski there as did my friends kids,This year my 5 year old daughter will have her first skiing lessons.
Last year we went to Bansko which was the pants ( sorry to those of you who like the place )ski school for the nips isnt very good so my hubby and i taught her the basic snowplough ect.
