Ski Hopfgarten - The Insiders Guide


  Well season 8 of 'Ski Hopfgarten' is approaching. Well its that time of year again when skis start twitching and so does the liver knowing its nearly SKI TIME!!!

 Andy and I would like to say a big thanks to all of you out there in web land who have emailed us and especially those who followed it up and came and saw what a great place Hopfgarten is.


Nothing stays the same as you would expect (it's healthy isn't it?) the village continues to grow, people move on and new friends arrive.

The biggest news is that Brett and Iris, after 15 years have given up the 'Silver Bullet'. A great farewell party was had at the end of September with great friends and music. We finally did manage to drink the pub out of Tequilla!

Brett and Iris are staying in Hopfgarten and Brett might finally have to get a proper job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are going to be some major changes in licenced premises for the season and as soon as they are confirmed we will let you know.

1. Instant Idiots will be playing every Friday at Ambiente (once Brett gets back from OZ)

2. There is a new apres ski bar at the car park end of the Sport Hotel

3. Zeitlos now opens at 1600 hours every day finally giving Moni and Tamara time to ski

4. Gastofs Oberbraue and Post and Parterre offer discerning drinkers a range of draught beers 

Hopfgarten is still the easiest access point into the 'Ski Welt' with hotel accomodation becoming increasingly hard to find at short notice!

We will still run this site as a passive information centre with as many contact details as possible but you will have to contact the businesses direct. But we will always try to answer any queries from old and new friends

We will still be there in the season as much as possible but watch this space to find out where our new drinking corner will be!

Hope to see you all soon CHEERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
