    24th of March 2015 was a big day in this household, no outdoors photos but the kids moved into their rooms after a longish extension. Kinda marked the end of four longish years.

    One year ago I was... timing a ski race of course. Super warm week near the end of a very thin snow season. We had a lift turning before 7 am so we could be done racing by 11 and the onset of soft snow.



    Whistler team set up their benches in front of their accoms and tuned skis in the sunshine.



    Busy week, 4 days of SL and GS running simultaneously and then 2 more days of FIS SL.

    7 years ago today I took these young water polo team mates to the hotel pool for an easy swim.

    Two entire teams of them jumped into the spa with the poor random guy in the far corner.

    No social distancing going on back in 2013!!

    Three years ago today I was appreciating the beauty in my garden. I’ll have to swing by there today and take the time to appreciate the beauty in that fish pond.

    Because we got an offer on our house :eek:, 24hrs after taking it off the market and starting the process of “mothballing” it. Assuming no glitches we settle in 5 weeks!



    Now that’ll be an adventure!
    Selling that house and being rid of the remaining furniture in this current world.

    Love this. Have though about doing this but it seemed overwhelming. Might have to find out how much space you need and build one.

    Last year I was here for 3 days of free skiing including all you can eat and drink with most of the Porsche engineering team and a couple of work colleagues. It was hard work. We stayed on mountain at Almstadl, awesome place, can recommend the accom. http://www.almstadl.at/index.php

    01 April 1982 - Davos Parsenn
    This is the 12km run from Weissfluhjoch down to the town of Küblis. Run took about 35mins, then train back to Davos took 50 mins (several stops to pick up other skiers).

    FYI, just next door.

    WAGRAIN - KLEINARL CONNECTION
    In December 2020 the "Panorama Link", a direct connection between the three valleys of Snow Space Salzburg as well as the three valleys of the Shuttleberg Flachauwinkl - Kleinarl and Zauchensee will open.

    So not a big stretch to link Zauchensee with Obertauern down the track.

    That looks good. Was in Zauchensee last year.

    But Obertraun (in OberOsterreich) is a fair way removed from Obertauern (in Salzburg).

    As it happens though, tomorrows pic will be from Obertauern. ;)
