Default 2 weeks in Hopfgarten, Austria

Just got back from a 2-week trip to Austria, large system with many slopes

The yearly trip with my family, this is my 11th year riding down there.

My second season on my Arbor Element RX 161 with Flow NXT-ATSE 2011 and K2 T1 DB boots.

Some really nice riding this year. First 3 days it snowed constantly, atleast 2 feet of fresh snow during the those days. Heavy snow so not much visibility but really nice to ride on, about 6 inches of powder on top of the groomed snow every morning and basically no people at all on the slopes

After that dump it stopped snowing but the conditions were still great, a couple of sunny days and it was a really nice trip Only 2 days when the slopes were clogged with people but other than that almost no lines to the lifts.

Only bad part was that one o the screws connecting the cable to the baseplate broke on my bindings so I hade to spend the last day on a rental board, but that was a interesting experience in itself.

Only one picture for now, will update once my sister uploads hers.
This is from one of the peaks looking down at "our" mountain :P
