Like most resorts, in Austria it is snowing daily and has been since last week. I'm thinking of driving there (6.5hr trip) friday night to be able to board saturday and sunday, and then drive back to arrive around about midnight at home. Now my GF thinks I'm nuts, but I really want to be able to board on pow this yrs. Last year the snow was crap from half feb onwards and I'll only be back half Feb, so I at least would be able to get a few great days boarding this year. Since no friends wanna come it'll just be me, but who cares as most of my best days were alone

What do you guys think?

I drove to Zermatt, Switzerland from the UK last season for a weekend and it was immense. 6.5hrs is nothing. Do it!

What's there to question? You should just go, from pictures I've seen in austria, they got the biggest dump in the world a week ago or so. Like 18' in 2 days...... Di it for sure

Me and a buddy drove 10 hours through the night to go for a few days all the time. And that's for the shitty conditions we are having. Do it you'll kick yourself if you don't
