SNO-man says

Well placed in Austria's largest inter-connected ski area - the Ski Welt, close to Westendorf. It has a high capacity gondola which accesses the region more efficiently than those of neighbouring resorts. The village itself is strung out, with a walk to the lifts and a bus ride to the nursery slopes. Apres ski can be lively, but is mostly hotel based.
