Living down the coast, winter was my least favourite season, generally spent low profile, working hard, patiently waiting for spring. Then in a single day that all changed. One day, I took my husband skiing for his birthday - a sport we had both enjoying, independently, in our younger days. On a sunny, bright blue day surrounded by pristine beauty, fresh mountain air and powder snow - we discovered we both shared a passion for this winter sport. So we raced out and bought our own gear and now our winters are full of anticipation and adventure as we race down the mountains, sip on 'Glühwein' and indulge in a little apres-ski!
