Contains many of the previous reviews.
The valley is sleepy in the evenings. And the ride is of varying type, something for everyone, therefore.
Can otherwise recommend renting a guide and taking the trip
Starting from Gargellen with hiking and off-piste skiing that finally takes you to Klosters in Switzerland and from there hiking and offpiste back to Gargellen. Very good ride at good snow access. There is also an easy trip further into the valley of the village of Partenen where you get up by lift and something called tunnel taxi to silvrettasee and piz buin and on to the village of Galtür which lies furthest into the valley at Ichgl (excuse spelling maybe) and then back down the Montafon valley.
Have spent a lot of time in the valley since the first time in 1986. Have been 2 weeks in the valley every year since then, so a little over 50 weeks in the valley has made it a second home. Which has resulted in a fairly good insight into what is happening in the valley and what is going on. The slow-lift lift system meant that there was a problem in some places, especially on the mountain hoch joch now belonging to Silver Nova, and nowadays, it is also built together with a lift down the valley where Valisera valley station is located. The work is with new lifts on the way ahead all the time.

Spent seven ski days in the area of ​​February / March 2014 with a polar. Falling heights are not huge but we found several beautiful runs both inside and outside the piste. Really no congestion hill, longest waiting time at the falls was 10 minutes a Sunday morning. The areas had not received any snow for a while, but it was easy to find untouched lots if you were in a hurry. We seemed to be the ones in the valley who at all hurried to get beyond what was reached by the lifts. Great potential for fine walks in the (forest) forest if there is snow there, which it did not last year.

In addition to a bus ride from Västerås, we were alone Swedes in the area. Note that week 9 is a sports permit in Holland and Montafon seems to be one of their favorite places. Just as others have mentioned, it's still dead in the evenings. Little locals who hang out on the weekend, otherwise nothing anywhere in the valley.

Visited the area a dozen times, very good area when you get to know it. Good range of slopes and offpiste and snow proof!

Hello

Montafon Valley: "The Alps' Family-Friendly Valley"
Review on the whole valley, not just Silvretta nova.
Made three months in the Montafon Valley 2009. The lift pass applies to Silvretta Nova, Golm, Hochjoch and Gargellen + a small lift that you do not use.
Have previously made seasons in Fugen (Zillertal) and St.Anton.

queues:
Non-existent. Is there a little 15 min at the valley station in Silvretta nova or at the cabin in Hochjoch.

Price level:
Will be 10-15% more expensive than other Austria due to proximity to Switzerland, but nothing is disturbing. Silvretta nova is a little more expensive than most Golm and Hochjoch.

Park:
Is not jibber so I can judge it I did not see what I tested.
There is a large park in Silvretta nova that seems ok. Very kids that seem to be fine.
Bad / nonexistent parks in the other parts.

Slopes:
Gargellen: Few and bad
Silvretta nova: A lot of good slopes.
Golm: Cozy hill down, or else there is not much here.
Hochjoch: One or two good, the rest is not much to hang in the Christmas tree.

Off-piste:
Gargellen: There are large areas and very good skiing. There are also soft randonne tours going on here.
There are untouched lines a few days after a snowfall. Worth thinking about is that they close Tähli (offpist valley) after snowfall and do not let go until it's stable (Think they're iaf).

Silvretta nova: Best forest skiing in the valley that you can go without playing with the police. There is also some good longer off-piste. Bla can go down the Gargellen road in the valley's best yard.
There are also great areas that are quickly picked up. Best area if you want something that suits everyone.

Golm:
Here, it's a good idea to play a game with the police (ride in a valley not allowed to go in) with a fine as a penalty. Otherwise you can go a little and get untouched snow one week after snowfall. The place you go to when there is no untouched loose snow in the north, somewhere else.

Hochjoch:
There is some good ride. Unfortunately, slow lanes and policemen in the forest destroy much of the pleasure. Some locals favorite according to themselves. Then you will see them more often in Gargellen or Silvretta nova. The hunch about this resort was one of the reasoning that you went here, but the area did not impress. Still posing the question. What have we missed?

Nightlife:
St-Gallenkirsh which is the tourist resort in the valley has ok nightlife some days. There is also a après ski place and a few bars in Schruns. But it is easily the sleepiest place I've been seasoned / been on.

accommodation:
Stayed in St. Anton im Montafon. Incredibly sleepy.
The biggest reason for the party is that the montafon valley can never be a seasonal place to expect.
There is a lot of accommodation, but those renting out are not used to renting more than a week and they are totally strange to give rabbit if they live longer. This means that there is not much affordable accommodation in the valley.

Conclusion:
For those who want a lot of snow for themselves and who do not mind sitting at home and staring at the wall in the evenings. The quality of the offpiste is ok and the biggest advantage is that there is little competition for the snow.
In 2009 there were a maximum of 20 seasoners in the valley. 4 Swedes, 4 Spaniards, one German couple and 5-6 Norwegians (who disappeared in February).
May see when and if I come back.
Is definitely not impossible, but never more season here it's safe for sure.

Have had a lot of pillows both times I was there, thought it was very good. Easy to find untouched pads. Got a lot of long pillowcases in Silveretta Nova. Beautiful slopes and good gulasch in the back too :)

silveretta nova is a very nice and varied lifting system that I have been visiting for five years now. You always start the day by going in the nearest slopes and moving on with the sun to the unspoilt slopes far away last day. The fog may not be the best but at the right time you can find very nice lines.

The village that I usually live called Monthanfon and is a very cozy and pleasant city. The best place I think you can stay at is called Pansion Mottabella and is one kilometer from the cable car, but five minutes by the ski bus you are on the plate and first on the slopes. Mottabella is also the owner / chef a little Swedish-speaking and her mother understands Swedish very well but can not speak the language. The palace has an extremely good three course menu every day and extremely cozy rooms.

If you are looking for a little worse pillows, you can either take the ski bus or the car to Gargellen which is a small but very powdery road that is almost everywhere. by bus, it takes up to 50 minutes and by car it takes half an hour and it is worth the good days. If it has snowed, Gargellen usually is isolated because there's only one way there and it's through a valley.

Located close to Ischgl and St. Anton, with the same high snow safety, but barely any lift queues at all, even during the sports week. It's easy to find untouched snowflakes, and it's a nice mix of pistes even though there may not be a real night black yard. It's not a ride on the more extreme variety, but I've had many euphoric moments in this system. Nice atmosphere in the village, genuine and Austrian, and although there is not an abundance of people and exhibits you can still turn around pretty well. It's great to find a longer officer if you ask around a bit, people are very nasty and do not mess with their favorite spots.
Cozy, varied and snow proof! Recommended!

Were there a couple of years ago in Silveretta, to some extent, it became a bit of sneezing, not the same pillows as ifjol but what guess it is. Now, as a visitor, it was possible that the camp could respond to what I remembered ... and here I want more times ... The height makes the plant vulnerable to bad weather. There are places nearby that are more wind protected. but otherwise this is going to be ...

In winter, I got a new ski resort to like here, a lot of what I want (mixed ride) was a little bit fun that there was a lot of sneezing. But then I can ride but have a little too bad condition, silveretta was a fitting place.

Here's what's needed ok it's a little short offpist ... (if you want from pist to pist or the like ...) The biggest advantage is that there is both the height and a bit of each to everyone. So, you're a group of slightly different levels ...
