We have come back to Gerlitzen for a second time having visited with our young family back in 2012. Our kids are now a little older and we have come with other family members this time (7 kids and 8 adults!) I cannot recommend this lovely family friendly resort enough. Austrian people are very kind and welcoming and our children thrived in the very well run but still very personable ski school. The mountain itself is extremely well run, the pistes are immaculate and the lifts are excellent. There is a great deal of skiing available for a small resort and everything is run with great efficiency and courtesy. Unlike some big resorts in France and Switzerland there is a real personal feel to the whole resort, from ski hire, ski school and every bar or hostelry on the mountain. The prices are excellent and seeing what goes into keeping the pistes in great shape (snow machines, piste machines working all hours) I believe he price of skiing to be very good value here. Likewise, one can eat and drink on the mountain for very reasonable prices. A delicious goulash soup with bread is only 4.90 euros and a pint of the local (and very good) Villacher beer is only 3.80 euros. That's less than my local pub and we are halfway up a mountain!
I have nothing but praise for this excellent resort and cannot recommend it highly enough.
