Krippenstein – Awesome Week

Riding Powder

In February I spent a fantastic week in Austria learning how to ski back-country.

Heading out to Krippenstein  was an adventure. It was the first time travelling on my own and only the second time I can remember travelling on a plane in my life.

The second we got to the small resort it was already snowing and there was plenty of snow everywhere. We were staying in a lodge at the very top of the mountain complete with 10 huskies and loads of ski-dos.

We had a piste basher build us a kicker and spent the week riding the jump and cruising the powder on some absolutely awesome K2 Powder skis!


Our guide Andi, knew every route in detail and he took us to areas where no one else had skied and we were creating the first tracks in the snow. We hit plenty of pillows, cliffs and steep faces.

Andi looked after us brilliantly all week – can’t thank him enough.



All in all it was a fantastic week and I can’t wait for my next adventure!

What can I say!?

So, what do you think? ;-)
