Hey guys! We`re finally back from our summer break! And today we want to tell you something about our “school-ski-day”.
We got the possibility to take part in the “school-ski-day” in Salzburg, sponsored by Netzwerk Winter. This special day, targeted at students was introduced in order to animate young people to go skiing. More important: They should go skiing before the season reaches its peak so that the ski lifts are in use .
We were split up into different groups, so everybody had the chance to ski down the slopes as fast as they wanted to. We, Wolfram, Nina, Sophie, Magdalena, Laura and Elisabeth went through the “Skicircus” with our English teacher, Mrs. Fagerer. Our group was called “Pinky and the brain” because it was almost the same formation of people as during our skiing week two years ago.
Our school went to Saalbach – Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn. There are 270 kilometers of slopes and it`s one of the biggest skiing areas in Austria. You can go skiing with your whole family on 140 kilometres of blue slopes, 112 kilometres of red slopes and 18 kilometres of black slopes, so there is a slope for everyone. The Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm has 70 ski lifts and cable cars and 60 comfortable mountain huts and funparks.
At lunchtime, we wanted to make a stop at the famous “Luis Alm” next to the “Bernkogelbahn”. We decided to order typical Austrian food like cheese noodles, which are named “Kasnockn” in Salzburg and for dessert we had “Germknödel with vanilla sauce”.
Our day-trip was also very funny. Wolfram, the only boy in our group, had a droll, small accident. He wanted to unclip his skis but suddenly the screw of his stopper loosened and lay next to his skis. We quickly went to a ski store in the valley and after three minutes we could continue skiing.
It was a very funny experience and we hope that we will get the possibility to take part in this “ski-day” again next year.
