The biggest skiingarea in the region of bregenzerwald in austrias most western part Vorarlberg, within over 100 km slopes! Damuels is the snowiest village in the world!
After a lot of searching through the hundreds of alpine resorts of Austria i came across a little known resort of Damuls. Not being on the british package tour operators list of destinations was half the attraction.
Travel was fairly easy with a little planning, we flew with easy jet to Friedrichshafen and from there a fairly simple hour and a half drive in a hire car.
Don't be put off by the driving aspect as it really is very easy, with only a couple of junctions to negotiate. Do remember to pick up a toll sticker to go on windscreen, this is for travel in Austria. Cost for toll 8.80 euros.
Damuls it's self is a very small high village at approx 1400m, very picturesque, clean and quiet. This was another reason for our choice as having been to many other resorts i didn't want all the hustle and bustle of one of the more popular resorts.
As my family were all first time skiers we didn't need a massive ski area although Damuls does offer 105km of runs which are linked to Melau resort.
With the majority being blue and red runs with a few blacks it was ideal for beginner to intermediate. Although i found plenty to keep me happy as well, with plenty of off piste skiing available if that's your thing .
Ski school was excellent, we actually splashed out on private tuition for 3 days. Under the instruction of Robert the kids progressed very quickly and skied much of the remainder of the holiday with me on blues and reds (well worth the extra expense).
There is the usual apres ski and the mountain is very well catered with plenty of ski huts and restaurants. Evenings are quiet but no problems eating out(just remember to reserve a table).
We stayed in Alpinresort self catering apartments, which were absolutely fantastic.
Very new apartment, clean, modern, great kitchen area,lovely bathroom with walk in shower and a stunning view from huge balcony. Apartment was only about 5 min walk to uga chair lift/ski school.You can catch a free ski bus but not really necessary.
I would hire a ski locker at the lift station and take the walk up in the morning .
There is a good sized spar supermarket in the village near the church, so if you plan to eat in a few nights you can find enough here. If you need anything ask for Ron who became our personal shopper, i've never been given a beer to drink whilst being guided round a supermarket(hilarious) thanks Ron!
We had a fantastic holiday here, absolutely loved this place and cannot recommend enough.

Just the drive to this church alone is worth spending the day doing. We went in May and there were so many wildflowers. The Waterfalls and streams were rushing. The grass was so green yet there were still snowy patches and snow on the alps. You drive past pastures with cows wearing cow bells. It was like a fairy tail, and really exactly what is in many imagination when visiting this area. The church itself is beautiful and up high so affords more beautiful views.

Did this as an after thought in the late spring. Still some snow in spots. A great way to be transported to take in the majestic beauty of this place. We did not have time to hike down but wish we had as the walk was on a gravel road part of the way down and paved part. It looked quite easy and would have been nice to take in more scenery. Prices were fair. Recommend! The restaurant was not open on top this time of year.

We were here with our 3 kids (8, 6 and 3y) in August 2016. They have 6 different tracks, from easy to difficult. For our youngest they had
a bambini parcours. It is very nice situated in the forest. Instructors were professionel and helpful. We'd all had a great day here.

We did a hiking to to the Mittagsspitze mountain top and area. We split in 2 groups: one went to the top, the other did a round trip around.
If you want to go to the top, it takes one hour from the Uga Alpe. It needs experience, but the view is delightful. You can see the Alps and the Lake of Constance.
If you like hiking but don't like riskier path, enjoy the beautiful nature around the Mittagsspitze.
There are great local restaurants nearby.
The area is very approachable.
