So it started snowing, and didn’t stop for 2 days! It turned everything into a winter wonderland and it was just BEAUTIFUL! Actually, on this day, we didn’t even leave the hotel except to eat dinner. We lazed about, read, swam, and napped. It was an awesome day.
Of course, making a snowman was in order!!
On our way to dinner, we realized just how much it snowed since they had to plow the roads!
The next day everyone wanted to go skiing again, so we geared back up and headed to the slopes. It was a beautiful day.
Kitzbuehel is known for world class ski racing. It was cool because this was a poster inside the ski lodge that showed the ski slopes where the races take place in late January.
And this was the same ski slope that they were starting to groom to be ready for the races in a few weeks’ time.
Later that day, we walked through the town again and decided to go up the mountain in a gondola. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but this gondola lift went almost straight up! I had never seen such a steep ascent before!
But the views were beyond amazing!
It was EXTREMELY cold that day, and we weren’t dressed warmly enough to stay for long, so we decided to go back down and come back the next day. This was the lodge at the top.
It was really all white up on top of that mountain, and I could understand where the term “snow blindness” comes from!
A ski lift on a different mountain.
There was another lodge further down the walking trail where we stopped for a bite to eat and to get warm.
Just look at those trees!
Time to head back. It had been a good walk…
But Littlest had reach her limit!!
Ahhh, much better in a warm pub warming up and sipping on some juice!
Our last day was wrapped up by seeing more snowfall and heading to the train station to make our way back home.
Littlest was a little tired on the trip home!
We couldn’t end the trip without some hug mugs of beer at Munich airport!
It had been a very memorable and fantastic ski trip! No one got hurt, the girls got to see more snow than they have in their entire lives, and it was just magical. Would love to go back to Kitzbuehel in the summer time and enjoy some hiking in the Alps!!
