We ski here again and as last year the weather is perfect. The ski areas are prepared perfectly. Italian and especially Slovenian ski resorts have to from this guys here how to prepare the tracks. This is just perfect especially in the morning when you are one off the first to come BUT even true the whole day there is big damaged to the tracks
I RECOMMEND!!!!

Rodelbahn Lucky Flitzer

Reviewed By Davor G - Pula, Croatia

We have been here for the first time and sorry to say it was not so good. First is hard to talk to the staff on the cashier true the window and you can not see him inside. After buying the ticket we didn't get any instruction how and what to do. We have been waiting for some time and the staff member in one moment decided to open the door of his office and didn't even won't to come out of the office and help. He told us that all is written on the wall.
The slide himself is not bad but this give us a bad impression of all....

Hermann Maier Adventures

Reviewed By Robert B - Perth

Segway Trip at Fachnau with Hermann Maier Ski School
We had one day at Fachnau, a day trip from Salzburg into the snow. Even though it was mid January there was no snow in the town so the free shuttle bus run by the Fachnau ski lift company seemed like a good idea. It leaves at 8.30am share from Mirabell Platz, just ten minutes walk from our hotel in the LinderGazze. The Bus Manager, nicknamed the Professor because he spoke seven languages was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and offered us a range of options for the day but we chose to wait until we arrived to assess the possibilities as we are all ski novices. Being off-peak season there were not likely to be long queues. We enjoyed a coffee on arrival then decided to book a Segway trip for the afternoon. None of us had ever been on Segways before but the Segway guide Sebastian was terrific and showed us how to use them in a fifteen minute practice session. We then set off through the village and along side foot paths and secluded roads for a one and a half hour adventure that we will never forget. The paths took us up the mountain on the opposite side of the valley, through snowfields and villages to a restaurant with a panoramic view of the valley where we enjoyed a large hot chocolate before making the descent. Even our eleven year old daughter was adept at using the Segway despite a minor spill on a section of ice which Sebastian assured us happens to the best of us, but no serious harm done and we continued back just in time to make our four pm bus back to Salzburg. Delightful experience, good value and a tremendous guide. Highly recommended for those who like us are complete ski novices or anyone who has wanted to try these unusual machines. What better place than the Austrian Alps.

Spent 8 days skiing at Flachau in mid December. Hired all our gear from Marlen, Flo and Rupert. As it was not busy we received such wonderful service, always smiling despite a couple of us not being great skiers. Our ski instructor Cathy (?) also very lovely. Best of 2017 to you guys!

I went to this shop to buy a pair of googles, and the woman helping me, was very helpfull unpacking all the different types and colors that i wanted to see. In the end when I had decided for a pair, I saw a discount sign on the desk, and asked if that also was for the shop. It was only for rentals she said, but she ended up giving me 20 euros discount anyway.

Die gemütlich und ansprechend eingerichtete Bar bietet Platz für viele Gäste, ist aber auch schon bei wenig Verkehr angenehm. Man kommt schnell ins Gespräch, das Personal ist sehr freundlich, gute Musik und ab 23h trudeln viele Mitarbeiter aus den umliegenden Bars und Restaurants dort ein - es wird lustig bis in den frühen Morgen ....
