❆ Austria - Learn to Ski with Derek & Wendy ❆

❆ Austria - Learn to Ski ❆

Arrived at the pretty Austrian village of Russbach, we checked into our newly refurbished Kronenhirsch Hotel, we changed into our ski gear then had a short walk to the ski centre to get kitted out with our ski equipment and collect our ski passes before heading to the slopes.

Time to meet our instructors. Victor and Ben were novice skiers and their instructor, Bernie, soon had them up on their skis on the nursery slopes learning the basics. It was Andy’s 3rd year skiing with us and he met up with his instructor from previous years, Adrian. It didn’t t take Andy long to get his ski legs back on the nursery slopes and was confidently improving his skills from the very start. The sun shone all afternoon which made a fabulous beginning to our holiday.

Every lunch time we all regrouped and discussed our mornings progress over a delicious lunch whilst enjoying the beautiful sunshine. Refreshed and refuelled everyone returned to their afternoon lessons and continued improving.

The views of the surrounding mountains were spectacular in the sunshine. 

After our fantastic day skiing we celebrated our improvements with a drink in the Umbrella Bar before relaxing our tired muscles in the sauna at our hotel. 

By the end of the holiday everyone had made such a great improvement it was fantastic to see everyone efforts paying off!

 During our stay we ate great Austrian food in typical Austrian surroundings. We enjoyed finishing our evenings in our hotel bar and some of us had a fun playing pool.
