It’s ski season! Already?

I was at Westbahnhof mall this afternoon to buy something (o.k, I wanted a certain type of face powder). It was my first time to the mall side as I have only been on the train side. The mall is actually bigger than I thought.

As I was looking around the shop, I heard some shouting and I wondered whether a fight was about to start. Why else would people be shouting, I asked myself. I then saw more than a hundred young people cheering and walking around the atrium in an organized fashion. They wanted to get the public’s attention, and they sure did.

They were wearing track suits and a few were carrying skis. I asked one of them what was going on and she said the group was advertising the start of skiing season in Innsbruck. Already? Time sure does fly!

I did not realize how many people were at Westbahnhof until they started congregating around the Innsbruck team. I wondered how many people will make arrangements to go skiing because of the display by the team.

    Oh, wow, you’re taking me back many years, but I recall the unbelievable time I had skiing in Austria. Mayrhofen was the locale–and the best skiing I’ve ever done with the most beautiful mountains I’ve ever seen. I was mesmerized.
    What a treat for you to live in Austria. I certainly hope you’ll have yourself a snowy–and safe–winter. Say hello to the slopes for me!
