Skiing and Trekking in Bavarian Forest

Date: 9th February 2008

Place: Bavarian Forest, Germany

After skiing in Michigan a couple of times, I tried skiing in the Great Arber. It was a wonderful experience. I was able to do the basic paths, but was too scared looking at the intermediate paths.

After a couple of rounds I started hiking in the snow. I was missing a spike shoes… I think it is a must on this snow. I had a tough time standing :D

Tips for skiing in these conditions:

  1. Dress in layers
  2. Wear a Ski Mask with glasses!
  3. Most important with the ski gloves try hand warmers

Skiing or Scuba diving? ;)

I was finally able to ski after falling a lot of times… and learning some tips from the kids around. Still need to learn how to control my speed while skiing. I almost crashed into a skate board guy who was going zig zag. I ended up screaming at him “Watch out” :D

Overall… I had a great time skiing… I have a feeling it will be my new obsession! ;)
