Skiing in Austria

We were unable to fly to the US this year for Christmas, so we decided to get out of Munich & head for the mountains. Last year we had so much fun in Kirchdorf in February, that we decided to go there again. It was a bit iffy on the snow front, but the few days before we left there was enough to open most of the major resorts & we drove down thru the snow on Saturday!!

Sophia was signed up for ski lessons all week, and by the second day she was getting on the bus to travel to the larger ski resorts with her class – which includes going up the “gongola” and the very high lifts! We were so proud of her.xmas 2009 276 xmas 2009 278

Troy & I had some lessons, and then spent the rest of the week traveling thru the region, checking out the resorts within a 15 min drive, which included Kitzbuhel and St Johann!
