The snow season is upon us, and what better way to enjoy the outdoors than…
Luckily here in Bavaria they really know how to enjoy the wintery months, and have ways for everyone to do it. If your like me and have never skiied before and dont quite have the time, sledding or rodeln is the best way to enjoy sliding around in the snow without getting too messy.
This past weekend we headed over to Unterammergau where the Pürschling trail is
A great year round hike, that just so happens to be a great ski spot in the winter with a superb sledding path. ( you hike up and sled all the way down, how fun is that?!)
We didnt have our own sleds,but luckily when we stopped for a prep coffee
in the worlds cutest gasthaus,
they were renting them out and our day was made.
So with a little extra pep in our step and stomped up that mountain
and let me tell youu, it was an absolutely gorgeous hike.
Fozen rivers lining the trail, fellow sledders speeding down the hill, giggling the whole way
the sun was warm on our cheeks as the cold our nipped our noses
Now I must admit, we didnt quite make it to the top- after 3,5 km uphill in the shin deep snow the fun had turned to some serious work and we were ready for play
so WOOOSHHH we headed down down down the slippery mountain face.
Ending up at the bottom soaking wet ( next time definitly bring snow pants) hands frozen but overal bursting with bliss. We then decided to quickly get warmed up with some scrumptious steamy soup and a well deserved alcohol free weißbier
Pro tip: Always end with soup
