There is no better way to escape the infinite sadness of Winter than to go skiing. The snow lightens up all darkness and you spend your days outside. No need to make sophisticated travel preparations or plans, you just pack your ski stuff and every morning you know you will be doing nothing but skiing, eating and drinking. Pure joy ! For the second year I stayed in Wagrain, Austria and enjoyed the Ski-amadé resort, a large network combining 28 ski areas and towns. The ski resort was named after the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
This year we were literally bombarded with snow. It’s so delightful to plough through it in the morning to get to the skilift, so different from your regular mornings when you just step in your car and drive to work.
By the way, did you know that Wagrain is the original home of Atomic Skis ?
