the austrian alps

Over Easter weekend, we hopped in the car and drove about nine hours to St. Anton, in the Austrian Alps, for one last weekend of skiing.

We arrived late afternoon, checked into our B&B, and then walked around the town.  Cute, non-touristy feel, bright blue skies & spring-like conditions…I don’t know about PAB, but I was getting a bit worried we had over shot the spring skiing window.

Luckily, I was wrong…as we woke up to fresh snow the next morning, which makes for excellent days spent on the slopes.

It was a quick trip, but well worth it – we both agree it would be the perfect place to spend a week next season.  The Austrians know the definition of aprés ski, that’s for sure.

You sure picked the right winter to ski Europe instead of New England! Glad you had a good time.

I’m embarassed to say that I live in Colorado and I didn’t ski at all this year. I did go to the French Alps when I lived in France. The skiing was great, and so was the food. We did kareoke one night too.
