Visitor reviews for Neustift Ski Resort

  • January 05, 2015
    from United Kingdom

    This was our first visit to Neustift, in the winter, although we have visited 5 times in the summer for walking.
    The valley is beautiful and it captures our hearts every time we visit.
    This time we brought our grown up family and their partners to ski and enjoy the New Year.
    As always, the food, service and wonderful scenery did not disappoint.

    What a wonderful place!
    The beautiful and bountiful dirndles abound laden with lots of plentiful beers in the summer fests and the winter is apres heaven for the one beat tub thumping German visitors at Neustift.
    Family friendly all year round and wonderful scenery and hinking in the summer, no wonder so many football teams come here for their summer training (ajax,genoa etc..) My favourite valley in the winter with a local all off-piste is accessable and plentiful with untouched tracks all day unlike the other tracked out resorts like St Anton etc...
    The local dorf pub has the most friendly staff and they have amazing memories! Unlike you the next day!!!!

    We were in Neustift first week of Febr.2010. It's a beautiful, great area with a lot of possibilities. You can go up to 3200 meters then go down to midstation or parkingplace. It's a glacier so the first days -23 degrees with lots of sun and wind and later fohn (warm wind) with snow and no sight at all. Be prepared of the changing weather conditions. Nice people and good food. We stayed at Hotel Augarten near the church. A good and friendly Hotel with a real SPA (sauna / whirlpool).

    I came to Neustift 2 years ago with my partner and 4 year old lad. We fell in love with the place and didn't want to leave. The scenery is lovely and I hope to move there one day when I can afford to do so.
    I returned to the area in Feb 2007 on my own this time but stayed at nearby Fulpmes.
    I don't know any German so I found it a little bit of a problem but I got by.
    I think the resort is mainly for Germans and I don't think they like us to come to their hidden treasure.
    The only gripe is the ski bus although free and plentiful,if you want to get the first bus up to the glacier you will be in for a somewhat crowded and crammed full bus ride. And as always the Germans will be there pushing in to get there first.

    I was in Neustift during the summer of 2004. It's a beautiful village with kind, helpful people. We hiked in the high mountains and stayed in the mountain huts. There was skiing in the summer at the head of the valley, near the glacier. Lots of ski trails for winter skiing, too. I hope to return to Neustift someday.
