So, I've been away skiing this last week, hence the lack of posts. Those of you following the hotel on Twitter & Facebook will have seen my updates. Guests often ask me what I get up to in the winter and what type of holidays I take. So here's a short summary of this trip away from Scilly.
Today is our last day on the slopes here in Obergurgl, Austria. Our first day was heavy snow and pretty heavy going with it. Getting used to the high altitude was bizarre after being on sea level!! Obergurgl is a particularly high resort and the skiing season is long between November & May!
The rest of the week has offered us clear blue skies and perfect conditions. We've been able to take the cable car link to Hochgurgl, the neighbouring resort each day.
Today is our last day sadly and we have an early start to head back home tomorrow (3.30am, Yikes!!).
The weather today is light snow and the skiing is pretty good with soft powder. My legs are working properly and I could do with another week to enjoy my new found technique!! Oh well, all good things have to come to an end. I guess it's like people holidaying on Scilly; you just get settled and it's time to return home.
Here's a few pictures of our trip to Austria.
