Work hard, play hard. The annual Ski Instructor Race.


This was my first season as a Snow Sports Instructor so I had no idea what to expect when I got the invitation for the annual Snow Sports Instructors race. I was told to expect a big party but even in my wildest dreams I could not expect what was going to happen that day. Probably more than 100 instructors from all over Upper Austria coming to tiny Feuerkogel ski field to first race against each other and then party together.IMG_0150

If the competition was about partying, our team would probably have won. In the snowboarding competition we came second (the three smiling people on the left – not in the picture is our disqualified friend who missed one of the first poles…). Will have to get him clean goggles for next year. CIMG4891

Being held on the last day of the season we stayed as long as we could – partying outside until it got dark and the last cable car owent down to the valley. Buses full of – let’s say “cheerful” – ski instructors left into all directions – just like every one of us leaving towards our different summer jobs. Looking forward to seeing you guys next season!
