Austria Ski Trip

Our squadron ski trip to Austria was a blast.  We stayed at a fantastic hotel and our only day of riding was an amazing powder day.

A short hike to get some nice turns.

 Our first experience with a European ski hut.  This place was tiny and crammed with skiers, but the soup and bread tasted fantastic.

 A nice traditional German girl I met at the hotel

 One of my favorite shots from the weekend.  Mach shreds the gnar.

 I gave the camera to Shock and she made some great photos.

Before leaving Austria we stopped at the Salzburg Christmas Market, which is a huge collection of vendors spread out all over the city.

We had a hot drink every hour or so to stay warm: hot cocoa and gluhwein (spiced wine served hot)
