Hi
I have been reading this forum for a while, but this is my first post, so please be gentle!
We are trying to find somewhere for 28th March - and I am getting completely confused.
We are a family of 4 including 2 fearless teens (too young for nightlife but too old for kids clubs), husband who is a cautious intermediate - and me, the absolute beginner.

Obviously the snow is the highest priority, but also pleasant surroundings would be nice.

I'd be really grateful for any advice at all!! Many thanks.

In Austria a 'teen' is not too young for the nightlife! :lol:

Maybe not - but I am their mum! :lol:
They are 14 and 15 yr boys - but look older, and its going to be hard enough getting them out of bed as it is, without adding nightlife!

Seriously though, I guess ideally we need somewhere they can be independent but safe, both on the slopes and in the evening.

Get them in the ice bar at Mayrhofen, they will love it. And you'll probably end up on the tables yourself!

I have heard about this "N"! I think we are probably going a bit too late for there this year.

We haven't much experience of proper ski resorts - apart from Ellmau last Xmas, the boys have skied Serre Chevalier (school trip), Cairngorm and Oslo - so I am trying to sort something out by reading all the reviews.

Wondered about Mayrhofen, but would the location of ski schools suit a mixed ability family? Also - how early would the boys have to get up to get on the slopes?
