A skiing day out

20 02 2010

By special request from southern India – an update on skiing activities! 🙂

This winter really deserves its name here in Austria. It has been a long time since we last had so much snow also down in the valleys and even in the city. So after fighting off a slight cold I had been struggling with two weeks ago it was time to get on the slopes another time, so far I have only managed to go skiing for two days between x-mas and new year’s which certainly is not enough for a winter like this one.

Last sunday I then went with two friends to Annaberg, a quaint little village on the way to Austria’s most important place of pilgrimage, Mariazell. Despite a forecast of some sun, we remained under cloud cover or even in slight fog for the whole day, but ok – most importantly there were lots of snow (Click on the pic for the link to a short photo album, only phone camera pictures)!

And what I am now really looking forward to is a 4-day extended skiing weekend early March in Obertauern, not one of the biggest but one of the most convenient skiing resorts, with many accomodations directly on the slopes. So after the aprés-ski fun one must just be fit enough to finish the  trip down the hill… 🙂
