    Gala night!

    January 25 in Austria ⋅ ☁️ 2 °C

    First; drinks and conversation at Neil & Gayles; then down to the dining room to get the results of the race.

    Before the race results were announced, I learned that two of my colleagues, Jean and Mark missed the race. At race time, there was a lot f confusion about which group would start first, where to get your race number etc. They decided to go for a bite to eat and come back when it was all settled. When the two returned, the organizers were pulling out the gate poles. Both those guys are good skiers, so my chances of placing just went up. I told Dianne before I saw the results that I thought I came in forth. That turned out to be true. I finished fourth. What pisses me off is that my time was less than half a second faster than Neil’s, who claims to have not tried hard at all!

    As Tom came in fourth this year; he won no prize but he has set the bar for himself.

    The dinner was, as usual amazing. Too much food. Then we all decided to try the shooting range. As I have never held a gun before I got a few tips; lined my shot and hit the bullseye the first time!
    That was lucky, now it is off to bed! Tom takes his shot and hits the target! Good try Tom!

    Smashup & Strudel

    January 23 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    Today we decided that I would ski in the area I liked and Tom would ski with his buddies on tougher terrain. We would all meet at noon for lunch. Good plan.

    It is another beautiful day here, not a cloud in the sky and just a few degrees below zero. I am skiing the less challenging stuff but still out of my comfort zone. But I am skiing in Austria! Things are going along well until someone comes from behind me and takes me down. Skies, poles and legs go flying. Now on the ground I do the check to see if everything still worked. It did. Now to collect myself and equipment. One of my poles had landed in the middle of the ski path and I needed it to be out of the way so there would not be another wipeout! I half crawled and used my other poles drag it out of the way. I managed to get my ski on, get righted, poles in hand and went on my way still shaking. The women who sent me flying had waited to make sure I was ok and apologized for the accident. I, of course reassured her I was A-ok.

    I continued skiing but was extremely cautious of the skiers around me as the hill was quite busy today.

    Tom surprises me with an early meet. We go up the lift again but I am done skiing we pick up our skis and head up to the spot to meet the others. I(we) decide to walk, mostly up hill. In a perfect world Tom would have preferred to take another chair to the top and ski down; it would have taken less time and less sweat on his part but I wouldn’t hear of it. I had been to the top and had seen it all! So we walked, not our best moment. Our reward was a plate of delicious apple strudel with vanilla. It was warm, comforting and delicious. Perfect end of day.

    I took the ride down in the gondola and Tom skied down we arrived within a few minutes of each other.

    At dinner we met up with friends and talked over our days adventures! I talked about the strudel!

    Exploring the hotel

    January 23 in Austria ⋅ 🌙 -1 °C

    SportHotel Royer is an interesting hotel. Built on many levels. For example from the reception to our room we go up two flights of stairs, walk a long winding corridor, down one flight of stairs and walk another long corridor before we arrive at our door. Lots of interesting paintings along the way and beautiful old chests litter the hallways.

    For entertainment there is 9 pin bowling alley’s, shooting range, fitness room, sauna, tanning booths, laundry facility, swimming pools with an awesome water slide, tennis courts, and table tennis( which we did not locate)

    Every morning and evening we ate in one of the huge dining room’s. The meals have been amazing. Great breakfast buffet and 5 course served meals!
