Another ‘nother tour

Went for a short ski tour in Austria with Frauke. We turned around before the top as we wanted to avoid going into avalanche territory. I demonstrated my complete lack of skills by rolling back down the hill after we turned around.

Night tour

I went ski touring in the evening with Frauke in Nesselwang. They keep the ski-field open in the evening there. We headed to the top of the mountain on a mixture of piste and small tracks. Amazingly I didn’t damage myself on the way down.

NTC Mid-Winter Party

The NTC mid-season party was held this evening at the Seealpe at Nebelhorn. We piled into a gondola and headed up there after work. They started up one of the lifts and we spent some time messing around on snow bikes and what-not. This was followed by eating and drinking in the restaurant. Martin and Kim jammed on their guitars while Flo provided percussion on his drums. Nice.

Once everybody was sufficiently liquored we grabbed the snow toys and headed down off the mountain using the toboggan track. I was sober and road a snow bike. The others weren’t. Mayhem. Great fun.
