I've just arrived from two weeks of skiing.
The first one, in Austria, Dachstein West, was totally awesome. I absolutely recommend you to visit Dachstein (near Salzburg, W.A. Mozart's birthplace).
Everything that could screw up was great: weather, snow conditions, skibuses, and people who went with us (and that was absolutely unsure due to some people's frequent bad moods and irritating characters...)

A week later, I went to Giant Mountains in Czech Republic. It was a school ski-course. The weather was nice too, but our slope was terrible. Only the last day we went to a place called The Bear's Lair and it was great there (but in my opinion nothing compares to Dachstein).
It was emotionally much more interesting and yes, difficult. Almost every girl cried and several alcohol-affected love accidents happened too. What would you expect from a school ski-course?
Some photos from there:

Our little private theater
One of the coaches said that he preferred blondes and one of the brunettes took it far too serious :)

Ski trip 2: totally lost, climbing uphill a deadly steep mountain where it was forbidden to enter and where snow-slides fall
One of my best friends, Anna. A perfect Milka chocolate ad, isn't it?
At the snowboard park
Simulation of being under a snow-slideGames which we didn't want and were forced to play. They turned out to be pretty funny.

Now I'm fully enjoying the rest of the weekend at home and trying to sleep up all the missing hours of rest.
Have a great weekend!
