I've been seeing a lot of photos and videos of people going on ski trips recently, and it just gave me the itch to go as well. I've been skiing since I was about four years old, and it's always been a fun thing for our family to do - usually with friends or extended family. I did however stop for a couple of years, because we opted to take other trips instead, which resulted in me rolling down the hill (instead of sliding) a couple of years back when we went to Kranjska Gora, in Slovenia. One could say it wasn't the smoothest transition back into skiing.
During the past couple of years its mostly been my dad and I going with a group of family friends, since my brother moved out and my mom has no fear like the one for putting boards on her feet and being pushed down an icy mountain. However, this year we're all going to Bad Gastein, Austria for my dads 50th birthday! Him and I went last year and it was truly great. There was a ton of different options, and even though the slopes close to the town were sometimes very packed, we just went to Sportgastein which was about 10 minutes away with bus.
I can't wait to go back!
