Conditions in Germany

Postby johnnash » Fri Feb 20, 2009 1:53 pm

Question for any of you FTOLers in Europe:

I have a last-minute business trip that will take me through Frankfurt next weekend. Under the terms of my ticket, I can lay over in Frankfurt or could even fly to another nearby airport at no additional charge. I was thinking of flying into Munich and skiing Garmisch, but one report ( said their base was only 10- 33 inches. The Garmisch website indicates a base on the mountain of around 150 cm. -- still not great, but not so bad. Are conditions there really that bad? Would there be another resort that you could recommend that would be reasonably close to Munich or another airport not to far from Frankfurt?

Thanks much

Lots of places in Austria are easily accessible from Munich. The Arlberg (St. Anton, Lech/Zurs) would be my priority if I were fortunate enough to be in your situation.
