We skied the White Ring .. from Lech to Zurs

After over a foot of fresh powder fell in the last 24 hours… on Wednesday morning the sun was shining brightly in the blue sky and we determined that even with my twisted knee … we definitely had to ski !!

The entire town was on the mountain early …, we managed to dress, have breakfast, redress and prepare to ski, actually put on our ski boots and walk to the Rufikopf lift by about 11!!

It was spectacular!!

pictures are really impossible!

but with perfect packed powder on the blue/ beginner piste … we made it to Zurs EVENTUALLY with only a slight bobble on the mid-mountain T-bar!! I had to get off and let us each go individually…. that worked out great because I did a bit of … out of necessity powder skiing (awesome – what skier live for!)

one run on the beginner piste is so terribly PATHETIC!! But it was all we could do … and we are insanely PROUD of our accomplishments!

we had beverages in Zurs, took the post bus back to Lech, had a sunbar beer at the Gasthof Post, hot soup and pizza snack at the Antonius and then fantastic dinner at Hotel Kristberg!!

Egon Zimmerman actually came by for a chat and to welcome us to his restaurant!! Exceptional  Hospitality!!

A sunny day after the snow

Perfect conditions

I'm a 67 year old single female with lots of travel and writing experience! I've been a Zimmermadchen/ ski bum in Lech am Arlberg, Austria and in Vail, Colorado. I spent a year in Teheran, Iran where I worked as a Logistics Technician and wrote spare parts lists for airplanes in the IIAF. You can see me as an extra in two movies: CHARAS, about drug smuggling in Malta ( filmed in Mumbai-Ballywood) and ZULU DAWN. Starting Burt Lancaster and Peter O 'Toole, Zulu Dawn was filmed in Pietermaritzburg, Natal, South Africa. Technical writing proved to be an interesting career as computer word processing technology developed after the early 1980s.. When that work became an activity for " contract writers!", I stepped into another career as a math and science teacher for DYS schools. Now retired, I have time to visit friends and see the rest of the world! Please join me as visit SEAsia and explore the Then and Now of "rough!" Travel!!
