Not long to wait …

Not long to wait …

On your marks … get set ….. go!!!!

#offpisteonskis #winteriscoming #notlongtowait

The days are getting shorter, the nights longer, the temperature is dropping just a little bit everyday and the peaks on the Hochkönig are getting a little dusting of the white stuff every now and then … it can only mean one thing, Winter 2015/16 is just round the corner.    The question is are you ready ? have you booked your ski holiday, have you bought the latest gear ? have you signed up to a fitness course ? all no, then its time to jump in to action and get going.

Here in the Hochkönig we are getting ready, the snow cannons are out on the pistes waiting to be tested, renovations are underway here at Haus Wasserbauer (we are upgrading a bedroom and a bathroom for this winter!) and in Mühlbach there is a pre winter excited buzz about the place.  So what can we hope for, the talk about the town and from the farmers (most importantly!) is that we should be heading for a great winter, all the signs from late summer, big onions, lots of wasps, tall flowers, the first frost etc etc all indicate a good, cold winter. Of course ultimately we just have to wait and see what mother nature brings and enjoy it whilst we can.  We look forward to seeing you.
