  1. So happy I found your blog! I went to Oberlech last weekend to ski. Can you recommend any other great ski towns? Looking forward to reading more of your posts and good luck with the company!

      What kind of Skier are you? Rookie, Intermediate, Expert? A Piste-Junkie or an Off-Piste Fan, looking for Apres Ski Action or rather interested in a quite location? There are a lot of areas to chose …
      Do you want to sleep back in Stuttgart or will you stay for a couple of days (that would extend your range) …

      Give me some idea and I can give you some recommendations!

  2. Hi Gernot! We are actually snowboarders and mostly board piste, but enjoy off-piste as well. However, we haven’t gone hiking (more than 30 mins) for that great off-piste run. We are looking for a weekend destination about 3-4 hours away and snow conditions mean more to us than the apres-ski scene.Looking for a place with great runs and nice people. Thanks for your help!!
