Arrived in Kitzbuhel on Saturday after a nightmare 24 hours when we discovered the kids passports were out of date on Friday night. It is possible to get a passport renewed in less than 24 hours on St. Patricks day but I don’t recommend it as heart medicine.
I’m not aware of anybody targetting missles at commercial airlines landing Salzburg, but you might be forgiven for thinking it after the manouvers out pilot indulged in shortly before landing. I have rarely stared out a window straight at the in an aeroplane whose wings are at a 90 degree angle to theÂ ground 2 minutesÂ beforeÂ landing, even our kids were sayingÂ “hey we’re at aÂ really funny angle”, yes, and Dad has a really funny look on his face.
Well not a speck of snow inÂ Kitzbuhel when we arrived, it lookedÂ more like Wexford than Austria, apart from the blistering hot sunshine. The ski rep.Â Rick promised snow fall onÂ Sunday andÂ blowÂ me down but he was right. The whole placeÂ was transformed overnight on Sunday to a skiing paradise.Â My skiing isÂ still shite, but I can’t blame the conditions anymore.Â
If you plan on bring kids skiing in Kitzbuhel, I can recomend the Kaiserhof Hotel as accomodation, its right beside the kids ski school.
