Snow, new skis and more …

This week in Mühlbach started with sunshine and positivley tropical temperatures for the end of November.  That has, however, all changed today with a break in the high pressure that has been dominating the European Alps for the past month to make way for much more seasonal weather and snowfall.   If the predicted amounts fall, then with some help from the extensive snow making network we have here in the Ski Amade, it should get us open for the 4th of December making a great season start …

The haus team (Vikki, Duncan and the boy) have been busy getting some projects finalised and a few others started. The new bathroom for Apartment Maier is nearly finished, now time for the new floor and furniture etc. The dishwasher, new table and chairs in the kitchen / dining area and improvements to the second bedroom in Apartment Bradl are all ongoing with good progress.

As we enter December here in Austria the festive season begins with Advent events and the arrival of Krampus, both are great fun and have historic relevance, but both are not mutually compatible. The events for advent are naturally based around the religious calendar and are celebrated with night time lantern walks, Christmas markets and much more. Krampus is a wholy Austrian affair and would only work in a country like Austria where there is a relaxed approach to scaring children (and adults for that matter!) with tales of kidnap and more …

With the new ski season only round the corner, the Haus team is getting very excited to be back out on the slopes and a certain member of the team can’t wait to put on her Atomic Cloud 11 skis again – these amazing skis are all waxed up and ready to go.  A full kit review will be coming very soon but if you’re interested in trying out a new (and just brilliant!) pair of skis, these should certainly be on your list.

More updates to come and snow alerts via the website. Don’t forget to follow us on Twiiter, Facebook, Pininterest or Instagram for photos and more.

Until next week. All the best from Mühlbach Duncan and Vikki
