Spring Skiing in Innsbruck


Between going back to work, traveling, casual wedding planning, and enjoying life in Germany, this year is flying by and the blog has taken a bit of a back seat.  Here we are in mid-July and my un-airconditioned apartment in the Rhinegau is making me miss the crisp air and incredible views of Innsbruck, which conveniently is where I left off with my posts.  For my first taste of spring skiing (which now might be the only time year that I ski – no hat and drinks on the slopes in the sunshine? Sign me up!), S and I headed to Innsbruck and checked out the runs on Stubai Glacier and Kitzbuhel.    It was a memorable weekend with great friends, gorgeous runs, and few toasts to both.




The word “Matterhorn” reminds me of that old Goofy cartoon where he skis off a jump with a “yahoohoohoowee,” and crashes right into his bed.

I found the actual Matterhorn to be as breathtaking as I still find that cartoon funny.   Here are some photos from my trip to Zermatt over Thanksgiving 2013, a trip on which our Jamaican bus driver cooked us a delicious Carribean-style Thanksgiving dinner, using the kitchen of a small Swiss restaurant.   Not your typical Turkey Day, but definitely one for the record books.
