Winter 2017-18 Super Season Start

It’s been snowing in the mountains and in the village – lots – and piste preparations are reported in the local press to be better than in any previous season. Westendorf and the SkiWelt region openened for the weekend of 2nd – 3rd December and runs continuously from Saturday 08/12/2017 through to 08/04/2018. And that’s 1,000 km of slopes.

The early planning, going back to last season’s policy of stockpiling huge amounts of snow in insulated stores, has enabled long runs to be established earlier than ever before. The well below freezing spell of cold weather has seen the snow cannons in action and now the new snow has arrived. A final inspection of the Apartments Ruetz luxury self catering accommodation demonstrated exactly how best standards have been achieved. Warm and welcoming, from the quality of the finish, the superb facilities and the greetings by the staff (in English) upon arrival. We think nothing has been overlooked. This accommodation is hugely popular in Winter and summer alike.  To find out more fill out the enquiry form on our main Sport Ruetz website or have a chat on the ‚phone with a member of our staff. +43 699 1989 6321 Contact details are at the foot of this page.
