    Thnx! I was looking for the entire 3 weeks for all of Austria and nothing was coming up west of Innsbruck. Will narrow the dates and see if zooming in on the search lands any fish.

    Great info, thanks.

    I've probably skied more days at Hintertux (Zillertal) than any other place in Austria and I agree on the "feel".

    Any thoughts on the best way to find "semi-slopeside"...

  15. Seeking Input on Planning a 2023 Ski Vacation in Austria

    Why Austria? Because it's cheap and so am I. Plus, I had so many great ski days there in the late 80s/very early 90s. Plus I speak passable German but no French or Italian.

    Atlantic Seafood in B-ville was great. I actually preferred it over Doug's. Their coleslaw is vinegar based, not mayo. Haven't been since 2009. May have to hit it this weekend.

    Bump. No action so wondering if the no shipping clause is the issue or if the price is too high? I saw this exact same bike on Pinkbike and the person was asking $2,700 which is ridiculous.
