.... took a road trip in the Austrian Alpes for a week. Thats what happens to you when your son decides to take a gap year to go skiing.

I might add that it was some odd 30 years since I went skiing in Austria, never been a fan of this side of the Alpes.

I know it's late in the season and the coldest period is already past but after our last week skiing I can't resist talking about how to survive in excessive cold. This winter I 've skied temperatures between -25 and -18 degrees Celsius (-12 to 0 degrees Fahrenheit) far too many days. Literally the whole winter break week had freezing temperatures! I've always been promoting layering as you can peel on or off a couple of layers as it turns colder or you get warm. But in these temperatures it just doesn't … [Read more...] about Surviving The Cold
