Accommodation next week in Bludenz or nearby

Hi,

You've been helpful with suggestions for my trip, which starts tomorrow.

I still do not have two nights booked and am looking for recommendations.

I am looking in the area of Bludenz, but see only a few options listed and they are more than I want to pay -- about 80 euro.

I see more in Feldkirch.

I have a rental car.

Questions:

--are there more options in Bludenz that are not showing up on sites like booking.com?
--if I stay in Feldkirch, is it still convenient to ski Damuls and Schruns?
--if I stay in Feldkirch, is it convenient to ski in Arosa or Flims?
--I like piste skiing. Are Flims, Arosa, Flumserberg, or Toggenburg any better than Damuls and Montafon/Silvretta?
--Finally, if I drive into CH but stay off the motorways, do I need a sticker like Austria requires (and is it even possible to do that?)

Thanks!

Many questions I try to answer them as good as possible:

I do not know the situation about accomodation in Feldkirch and Bludenz but would check other websites than booking.com as well. One recommendation is usually the local tourist office website.
If you want to go to the Montafon area why don´t looking directly in Schruns, Vandans, Gaschurn or St. Gallenkirch for accomodation. Should be possible to find sth in the price range mentioned. From Feldkirch to Arosa and probably Flims as well it is quite a distance according to my Memory.
Damuels and Montafon are OK for piste skiing, I doubt thet the swiss areas are better but do not really know.
In Switzerland you need the Vignette on all motorways and so called "Schnellstrassen", roads with Motorway character, I am not sure whether you can reach the areas mentioned without the sticker.
Have fun!

--if I stay in Feldkirch, is it convenient to ski in Arosa or Flims?
It's possible. I recommend to drive to Churwalden, if you want to go to Arosa. It's the same ski area, but you are 30 minutes faster.
--I like piste skiing. Are Flims, Arosa, Flumserberg, or Toggenburg any better than Damuls and Montafon/Silvretta?
Flims and Arosa are much bigger ski areas then the others. Depending on what you like more, they can be better.
--Finally, if I drive into CH but stay off the motorways, do I need a sticker like Austria requires (and is it even possible to do that?)
No, you don't need any sticker. The sticker is only necessary, when you want to use the motorways. All destinations can be reached without motorways. Google Maps has the possibility to show you the way.

I am not sure whether you can reach the areas mentioned without the sticker.
Warum sollte man Skigebiete nicht ohne Autobahn erreichen? Es hat/muss(?) ja immer noch eine Alternativstrasse haben.

Dass man sie irgendwie erreichen kann, ist klar, die Frage ist nur, ob das in einer akzeptablen Zeit machbar ist. Vielleicht etwas unklar ausgedrückt, aber ich glaube dem Kollegen bringt es nichts, wenn er stundenlang über Dorfstraßen tingelt. Vor allem, nach meinem Kenntnisstand, gilt die Vignette auch auf Schnellstraßen, nicht nur auf Autobahnen.

Falls du mit Schnellstrassen Autostrassen meinst: Dort gilt keine Vignettenpflicht. Karte mit den vignettenpflichtigen Autobahnen:

^ Es gibt sehr wohl Autostraßen, die vignettenpflichtig sind und nicht als Autobahn geführt werden, z.B. die einspurigen Teile der Bernardino-A13 oder auch die A8 am Brüningpass.

Vignettenfreie Autostraßen sind z.B. die Umfahrung in Locarno und das erste Stück da am Simplon, soweit ich mich erinnere..

Thanks, everyone. I wound up staying in Feldkirch, and skied at Montafon one day and Flumserberg the next. Driving to Flumserberg and avoiding the motorways was somewhat annoying but not bad overall.
