Visitor Reviews of Waidring


Mark Gunston from United Kingdom writes:

Skied here several times, during Feb/March, as the snow was so much better than most other resorts, in the region, this year but it was often very busy because of this. Steinplatte is a great area for blue run skiers and there are some runs where even the most timid of skiers can allow their skis to stay in the foreline. The slopes are very wide and the lifts are very modern. As a consequence, when it is busy you really have to watch your back as there can be a large number of technically poor skiers hammering down the hill and it is sometimes quite dangerous to finish your turns because of the risk of someone skiing into you from behind. On quieter days, weekdays in January and just before Easter it is an intermediates paradise. If it gets too busy or the visibility is poor you can ski down to Winklmoos, in Germany, and usually avoid the queues and ski on tree-lined runs. This has the best terrain I have ever seen for beginners and very timid skiers afraid of any gradient, and holds the snow very well.
Pros: incredible terrain for timid skiers, usually the best snow conditions in the area, fast efficient lift system, easy to get to by car.
Cons: often very busy, a lot of idiot skiers, during the holidays, skiing too fast for their ability, not enough mountain restaurants which can get over-crowded, prone to misty whiteout conditions (most of the skiing is above the tree line).
Top tip: always ski here on a sunny weekday in low season.
