Meet up in a Nutshell

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Skiing the Alps, and especially St. Anton am Alberg is a MUST for every skiers bucket list, no matter your ability.  The only requirement for attendance is PASSION for skiing.  If you're reading this post, then you've already qualified yourself!


Starting at cocktail hour on the 9th of February, we will begin looking at the weather, snow conditions and forecasts, and with the help of the owner of Hotel Garni Rauch, we will map the itinerary for the following day.  Weather and snow conditions change rapidly, and we've only got a week, we'll want to go with the flow, and find that sweet spot every day.  As per most gatherings, the group will likely split into ambition and ability.


It will be 5 days of awesome skiing, with likely branch off's before and after the official meet up for people to try other ski areas near by, or perhaps something cultural.


Hello.  I'm Heidi.  I grew up skiing Park City and Snowbird and now live below sea level in Amsterdam for the last 12 years.  I am married and mother to two ripetters.


If you've never skied the Alps before, you are likely to blown away with the kilometers after kilometers of non stop skiing, and the numerous mountain huts, some built as far back as 250 years ago by a farmer, or a refuge in the mountains as a remnant of World War I, and inside you find tasty European treats to delight you. This is a 5+ day gathering that will likely hit all your senses, from the off piste itineraries will we organized with certified off piste mountain guides, chocolate box type architecture, vast mountains skiing that rival with the best skiing destinations.

It looks like Heidi can't join us, and I can't see anyone else booked in the Rauch, so we'll need to change Gathering HQ.

We can meet up Sunday night at the Hotel Montfort (Dorfstrasse 57). It's on the main road, across from the church. If you're walking towards the Nasserein lift (i.e., downhill), then it'll be on your left. It's a fairly central location, so hopefully it's convenient for everyone. If not, we can find a new meeting point for the other days.

So, Sunday night at about 8:00 in the lobby of the Hotel Montfort.
