A Week in Turracher Höhe

POSTED IN Adventures TAGS , , COMMENTS 0

Hello!

Last week we took a 7 day family skiing/snowboarding trip to Turracher Höhe in the Austrian alps, and I haven’t been on a board the last 2 winters so I was really stoked! It was like taking a week of from reality, it was amazing. We stayed at the Sundance resort just next to the ski-lift, spent the days on the snow and evenings at our apartment playing tarock, solving crossword puzzles and enjoying some modified bombardinos (heated eggnog, Jameson whiskey, whipped cream and some cinnamon – the drink December for sure!). The fact that we only had wi-fi at the lobby was a big plus, that meant that we actually dropped all our electronics and focused on some quality hang-out time. We were up on 2000m above sea level, but the true winter hasn’t come yet, there was no sight of snow, only the slopes were covered with artificially made snow, but we soon realized that we actually picked the perfect time for our vacation. The first 5 days the hotel was basically empty (it was like we had a private spa and pool!) and the slopes were great as well. Because of the lack of snow not all the them were open and only a small part of the snowpark was set-up but it was enough to keep us hyped. The weather was dope, not a cloud in sight and temperatures up to 10 degrees during the day. The one thing that I need to highlight is possibly the funniest, most absurd “injury” that has ever happened to anyone while snowboarding. A damn dog bit me in the middle of a slope hahaha. Yeah I can’t even properly explain this one, I was riding down the hill and I saw a dog running from the cabin towards me, dragging a little girl behind him. I stopped and he ran up to me and bit me in the finger through my gloves, it’s was nothing serious but it sure makes a hilarious story haha. All in all it was an awesome vacation, playing out in Sine Metu style, good times, lots of laughs and taking full advantage of the life we’re living. Here are some photos Nina and I took during our time in this stunning place up in the Austrian mountains.

Živjo!
Prejšnji teden smo šli na družinski 7-dnevni smučarski/borderski dopust v Turracher Höhe v avstrijskih alpah in ker v zadnjih dveh zimah nisem stal na dilci sem se tega zelo veselil! Bilo je kot, da smo si vzeli teden časa oddiha od realnosti. Bivali smo v Sundance resortu, postavljenem takoj zraven sedežnice, preživeli dneve na snegu in večere v apartmaju kjer smo igrali tarok, reševali križanke in uživali v malce dodelanih bombardinih (pogret jajčni liker, Jameson whiskey, smetana ter cimet – pijača decembra, nedvomno!). Dejstvo, da je bil wi-fi le v avli je bil ogromen plus, saj je to pomenilo, da smo dejansko zavrgli svoje elektronske napravice in se posvetili kvalitetnemu druženju. Kljub temu, da smo bili na 2000m nadmorske višine, prava zima še ni nastopila, ni bilo sledu o snegu, le smučišče je bilo zakrito z umetno narejenim snegom, a smo kmalu ugotovili, da smo izbrali perfektem timing za dopust. Prvih pet dni je bil hotel praktično prazen (torej je bilo kot, da imamo privat spa in bazen) in strmine so bile prav tako precej neobljudene. Zaradi pomanjkanja snega niso bile vse proge odprte in postavljen je bil le manjši del snowparka a to je bilo dovolj, da smo bili zelo zadovoljni! Vreme je bilo pravtako super, niti oblačka v bližini in temperature do 10 stopinj. En dogodek pa moram posebej poudariti in to je vrjetno najsmešnjejša in najabsurdnejša “poškodba”, ki se je kdajkoli zgodila nekomu na bordu. Faking pes me je ugriznil sredi smučarske proge! Hahaha. Jah, nemorem niti natančno razložiti situacije, spuščal sem se po strmini in opazil psa, ki teče proti meni in za sabo vleče malo deklico. Ustavil sem se, pes je pritekel do mene in me ugriznil v prst skozi rokavico, seveda ni bilo nič resnega a definitvno je blazno smešna dogodivščina. Konec koncev, je bil to izjemen dopust v Sine Metu stilu, zabavni trenutki, veliko smeha in uživanje v življenju, ki ga živimo. Tu pa je še nekaj slik, ki sva jih naredila z Nino med našim časom v avstrijskih gorah.
