Innsbruck-Austria

These pictures are from a trip to Austria, taken a few months back. The drive itself was amazing, through the Alps and the Dolomites. The Brennero pass, border crossing between Italy and Austria was particularly awesome, the best road I have driven in. An extremely twisty mountain highway high up in the Alps, with strong winds to make things difficult. And of course spectacular mountains all around for company. Took these snaps with my mobile

Nordpark, a ski resort in the Austrian Alps just outside the city ofInnsbruck

Ski lift

Skiers relaxing

On the edge: the city of Innsbruck 5000 feet below

Sunbathing in the snow. Now why would anyone want to do that?

These Austrians are crazy!!!

This was bloody awesome, a ski slope down the mountain side of 60-65 degree gradient with nothing inbetween for 800 feet. The tiny black spots are the skiers

Chilling out in the mountain bar! 9000 feet above mean sea level. Was a heady feeling 😉
