Snow in January


I've been reading about Saalbach and that it is lower than other resorts and therefore not as snow reliable. Does anyone know traditionally whether mid January has good snow? Is there a webpage with the snow depth history? Can anyone give me feedback on their experiences skiing mid January.

Travel options from Munich:

1) Holiday Shuttle (as above) also operate a Munich Airport - Saalbach shuttle - or VIP taxis.

2) Rent a car - it's about a 3-hour drive on a good day but can take far longer on a snowy day with heavy holiday traffic (the Shuttle drivers know all the short-cuts and back roads to avoid the worst traffic). You don't need a car in S-H, and do you really want to drive an unfamiliar car on snow-covered roads after many hours in a plane? You can see, I don't particularly recommend this.

3) Train from Munich Airport to Zell am See - will may need to change once or twice, but it's an easy 3-4 hour journey and German/Austrian railways are very comfortable and efficient. From Zell am See, take a taxi from outside the station for the last 16km to Saalbach.

Nicole I have skied in Hintergleem co-joined) for the past three January's and the snow has been excellent. One word of caution saalbach is a lot more boisterous than hinterglemm. If you can afford it stay at the Alpine Palace. Amazing staff food and atmosphere
