Ok, so going to Radstadt in 3 weeks. (I won a catered chalet week there) It looks like a gorgeous chalet, but Radstadt itself, looks to be fairly limited for skiing. Having never been in that area before, I have no clue really on the lie of the land or on how easy it will be getting to some of the bigger skiing areas. I know there is a shuttle bus which will take us to Filzmoos, but from there, will we be able to access good Intermediate slopes, or will we need to travel a bit further afield?..............and if so, is there and back going to be achievable on a daily basis. Don't want to get stuck on the wrong side of a mountain like last year, with no way back!! The people who own the chalet have been really helpful and I know they will be able to give us lots of advice when we get there ( I don't want to keep asking lots of questions by email) So thought I'd try to find out from some of you guys who will have been there, on the best places to go and how to get there.

Not been there myself but the Skiamade area is vast as we normally do Schladming. Have a look at the attached link, hope it helps.

Thanks for that Scarlet Fez - I have read a fair bit about it being a vast area, I'm just not sure how accessible it all is from where we are staying. I got stuck in Vallandry last season when we were staying in Les Arcs 2000................and just want to avoid something like that happening again )

As long as you aren't staying with Austrian Adventures, I've heard some horror stories

Haha would this be the holiday from another forum!? I was in that area in april 08, stayed in wagrain on a school trip! I only got to ski flachau and wagrain, but those are definitely worth getting to, also get to zauchensee its meant to be the best area in the salzburger sportwelt! Tis also the resort that they hold a womens downhill race in! Eat Tiroler Grostl because it's good!

Cheers guys. As always, I'm sure we'll "find our feet" once we get there. Want to make the most of it.

I'm remember there being a very good trip report on the snowheads forum from a member who had been to the area, may be worth trying to find it to have a read!?
