snowy weekender

This past weekend I took one of my good friends from Vienna, Katrin, skiing in Zell am See as a belated birthday present. She had never been but definitely did an awesome job. We were able to go down red slopes the first afternoon and had a blast all day.

On Sunday we stopped at Areitalm for lunch and it was delicious. Everyone was absolutely happy with what they got and I was ready to roll down the mountain afterward.
starter: chef’s choice, a creation of octopus and crab-meat with fresh bread.
breaded fried chicken with cranberry jam and cucumber-potato-salad.
farmers salad with bacon, potatoes and a sunny-side-up egg.
pasta with a bell-pepper, tomato sauce and king prawns.
One of the newest highlights in the Zell am See ski-resort is that you can go online after a day of skiing and enter you ski-pass number to find out lots of fun information about what you did all day. All the lifts and slopes have tracking systems and every time you go through a checkpoint it registers it. We ended up doing 10 runs, 15 kilometers of slopes and 2,492 meters in altitude.
