My husband took me for a surprise ski trip to Zell am See in Austria at the beginning of February. Zell am See is such a charming town with beautiful scenery, where the magnificent mountains sparkle in the sun and snowy white trees scatter the landscape. We’d not skiied for quite a few years, and I was a little worried in case I’d forgotten my ski legs! Luckily I needn’t have worried as the slopes catered for all abilities from smooth, easy descents to steep, nail biting ones. I got to spend the first couple of days getting used to the feel of the snow beneath my skis, and improve my technique, then it was time to challenge the rest of the mountain! I got such a buzz when I reached the bottom of the mountain and looked proudly back up the slope that I’d just conquered. It just made me want to do it all over again! Skiing definitely gives such a rush of adrenaline, and it is so refreshing feeling the rush of the wind against my cheeks.
