Our company has been pushing for us to take several days annual leave this quarter to save on leave liability to try and help the bottom line and reduce job losses. It is a bit odd as I am actually quite busy supporting our client who are currently very busy, but I am taking the odd day off here and there, today being one of those. Taking leave though without being able to travel anywhere though is quite a foreign concept to me. With things as they are at the moment I can't really do any proper travel planning and I have always enjoyed the planning part of any trip. I have skied in Austria several times and a on couple of those trips I have used the Salzburger Super ski pass which covers a multitude of ski areas, although I have still only skied a few of them - a few days to a week. I have at times wondered how I might do it differently. So today with not much else to do I wondered how some sort of ski safari would work just using this one ski pass. How may areas could I link up. I had done a couple of ski safari type trips in France. These were group tours where we would use ski lifts to ski form one ski area to the next and some of the backcountry in between whike a an woukd take our luggage to the next town to meet us. These were fun. 1989 was in the Tarantaise region - La Plagne, Les Arcs, Tignes, Valnmorel, Val Thorens, Courchevel but staying in little villages with ski lift access to those areas. In 1994 it was Morzine, Avoriaz, Flaine, Grand Montets and the Vallee Blanche. I figured I could do something a bit similar in Austria, without necessarily any backcountry.
