I have been travelling to the Montafon valley, to ski with my family, for the past 10 years. When we started, it was very unusual to hear another English or Irish speaking person there. Amazingly, it's still rare enough!
The Montafon valley has a huge variety of ski areas available with first-class facilities. Schruns is a lovely town and although it is not as "manic" as other ski resorts, when it comes to night-life, you can still find enough entertainment and excellent restaurants in the town itself and within a short drive/bus journey.
It's Austria's best-kept ski resort secret!
