St. Anton recap
We had a blast skiing all weekend, taking in the amazing views of the alps, enjoying the local food and beer - I highly recommend this place to anyone!!
pictures - warning there are a lot of them! but well worth looking at
We spent Saturday hitting the slopes. Considering it was the first time Brian and I had been skiing in a year I think we did fairly well! We started off a little easy and then decided to take the gondola to the highest peak in St. Anton (2800 meters!) and ski down as our last run of the day. Definitely was a challenge for me, but SO worth it!! Luckily there was an intermediate trail at the top for us to ski down - and we were stopping every 5 minutes to enjoy the scenery!
Sunday we decided to rent toboggans and take those down the mountain. Let me tell you - SO much fun!! Those things can really pick up speed!! I wish we had gotten more pics of us actually using the sleds, but we were having so much fun zipping down the trail, we forgot to take pics!
The hotel we stayed at was amazing, and our hostess Brigitte was wonderful. We met a lot of really nice people and had some amazing food. We cant wait to go back next winter!!
