SNO-man says

A key part of the Skiverbund Amadé, linked to Flachau at one side and St Johann im Pongau on the other. A lovely, medium-sized village (population 3200) "with all conveniences". The one kilometre (two thirds of a mile) long Mulde (Number 24 ) run is the toughest in the region.

"Wagrain" by any other name

The Austrian resort is also known as Wagrain Grafenberg, Griessenkareck and has common misspellings:

The direction which the various Wagrain slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.

- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition. Conversely, in the warmest spring skiing months of March and especially April, a resort with cool and shady north facing trails will ensure you're not riding on slush, but benefitting from best late season snow. The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Wagrain has slopes facing Nord.
