Saas fee, arinsal, Zell am See, Niederau


First time here and was wondering if someone can help me.

Currently arranging a ski holiday for february 5th 2011 for me and gf, and cant decide where to go. We went to Borovets last year for first time skiiing and loved it, good people, good food, good snow/slope and it was cheap.

This year we want to try Europe and it's a toss up between Saas fee in Switzerland, Arinsal in Andorra, Zell am See or Niederau in Austria.

People say it's well conected and have four valleys to ski, also the apres-ski is pretty good. The hotel which has got good reviews for two star, half board is Hotel Macolau (central location and good food) plsu its the cheapest about 1450 pounds.

Saas Fee
Im not that clued up on saas fee to be honest and was hoping someone could add a few things. Only thing I've read about is that it's good for beginner/intermediate and the apres-ski is lively. The accomodation we've been looking at is the Allalin apartments self catering, the only thing that concerns me is the price of food and drink in the supermarkets, so depending on these prices could be easier to go for half board which is a little more expensive anyway.

Zell am See
Again don't have much information yet about this resort, only that i heard it's good for beginner/intermediate. I got a price from Neilson for hotel Traube half board at 1686 pounds. Is it a good resort, good snow/slopes? Can you get area ski pass or just local? Good apres-ski?

Same as Zell am See that it's good for beginner/intermediate. The price from Neilson 1374 pounds at Almdorf cabins self catering (which has got a couple of good reviews). How much is food and drink in the supermarkets? How is the apres-ski? Is the resort connected to any other areas or just local ski pass?

It's a bit of a tall order but hopefully some one can give some advice.

Thanks in advance.
