Visitor Reviews of Hochkönig

Nick Murphy from United Kingdom writes:

Reading the summaries of reviews I felt I had to write.
Went for 5 days over Christmas 2012.
Longest wait for any lift was 2 minutes, generally no queue at all.
Very inexpensive. I have been to many high French resorts, for instance, and I reckon that eating on the mountain was far, far less expensive. Drinks too - reasonably priced.
Ski hire / passes - all seemed reasonable too.
A lovely ski area. What we particularly liked was that the majority of skiers were reasonably experienced, so negotiating the pistes was generally straightforward. Also hardly any 'boy racers' so felt very comfortable.
