After 2 great days in Schladming, the Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn was calling. After an early morning car ride from Schladming to Hinterglemm, we were very lucky, because we could do an early check-in. We dropped all our stuff at our new accommodation and went immediately afterwards to the slopes to enjoy another beautiful day.
Last weekend I went to 2 big ski openings. The first stop of this trip was Schladming. As we arrived on Thursday (one day before the big opening), the weather changed a little. The wind got stronger and it was really cloudy, including some fresh snow.
This weather change did not affect the slopes or the ski opening atmosphere at the world famous Planai. The slopes were in very good conditions and almost all tracks were already opened. We were skiing almost all day with just a little break for lunch. On Friday, we were part of the big opening on the mountain. We started with a very nice breakfast at our accommodation close to the ski area.
After a great last winter season (2015/16) at ‚Schaf Alm‘ in Schaldming, this upcoming winter you will find me in Hinterglemm. From the beginning of December, I will be there and give you regular updates of what’s going on in Hinterglemm and the other 3 ski areas of ‚Home of Lässig‘ (Saalbach, Leogang and Fieberbrunn). Check out www.saalbach.com for all the details about this ski area, which is one of Austria’s biggest ones (270km slopes).
Incredible 4 months later, I’m back home in Austria. Here’s my short clip of kitesurf action & traveling in Mauritius. Another video with some nighttime footage will be uploaded in the next few days!
As a lot of things were happening the last weeks, I keep this blog post as short as possible. My daily business is still kitesurfing every day, but we also did some hiking up to the top of Brabant (the home mountain of Le Morne), dolphin watching, snorkeling, eating fresh fish and much more. The following pictures should give you a little insight into my last weeks here in Mauritius. Enjoy!
Be careful when you drive your vehicle in Mauritius. People park their cars everywhere, out of the blue, even on the most busy roads. Everywhere are roads filled with potholes, roadworks and speed bumps! Buses and trucks need more than just one half of the whole street, so be carefully when
Surfers from all over the world stay for their time in Mauritus in La Gaulette, which is located just next to the world famous Kite- ,Wind- and Surfspot in Le Morne. Most of them spend their day at the beach surfing or doing some adventures across the island. In the evening, as soon as the sun sets, you can find most of the surfers hanging at the local surfers‘ bar called ENSO.
After 12 days in Mauritius, I definitely can say:
I really like this country, the island & its lifestyle. Mauritius, you got me!
The daily routine starts with
The first few days have already been awesome on the island! I had my first Kitesurf lessons, went surfing & stand up paddling. It’s such a nice country with lovely people! Unfortunately, I only took my camera with me once. Therefore I have not taken a lot of pictures yet. A chosen few pictures of the first days in Mauritius can be seen on my Facebook page.
