It is easy to faff around & flower-up one's experience of a ski resort. Some times (most times actually), it is best to cut the flowery descriptions & state it plainly. We found Diedamskopf to be AWESOME! I'll let the pictures do the talking........... noting of course the snow quality, lack of other skiers, fine food & great terrain.

One of the great pleasures of skiing in Europe is the opportunity to stay in a real village with real people leading real lives. Schoppernau & Au are the two village near Diedamskopf & both reek of rural authenticity. Just near the base of the Diedamskopf gondola & ski school area, the sight & sweet/acrid smell of dairy cows dispels any notions that this is a manufactured ski resort village. If that is not enough. visiting farmers that are making (& selling) their own schinken, sausage & speck, tasting their treats, then toasting a few complimentary schnapps should convince you.

Diedamskopf is only a medium sized ski resort but provides a wonderful ski experience (hence our 5/5 value rating) to anyone that takes the time to check it out. The resort is fabulously family friendly & whilst its terrain may not be expansive enough for more than a few days of interest on the slopes, Diedamskopf's proximity to Warth Schroecken & Damuels  Mellau provides a festival of ski opportunities in one of the snowiest parts of Europe. 

We traveled to/from Schoppernau & Diedamskopf by train & public bus in both directions (east & west) just to prove it can easily done. The best access is via Dornbirn railway station in western Austria - convenient to Innsbruck or Zurich. The alternative route from the east is through Warth Schroecken & is prone to road closure during heavy snow (case in point - the road in that direction was closed for five days during our visit).

We have placed Diedamskopf on the Powderhounds 'Super Secret Stash List.' So let everyone know. When it dumps, forget St Anton or Lech, head to Schoppernau for a taste of powder skiing the way it should be.
