I am stood on the top of an Austrian mountain above the town of Zell am see and I can't see 20m in front of me due to the white out. It has been like this since the second day here and there must be 2 foot (60cm to all you modernists), of fresh snow. For most people this would be a dream but as it's only my second snowboarding trip the lack of visability is making me nervous, and rightly so as the day before I caught an edge on a fat mogul and slammed into the ground/snow.
Fast Fast forward to day four and its brilliant blue skies, minus 18C, the snow is perfect but this nagging pain in my chest is distracting me from enjoying the conditions, I think it may be broken but my brother says "stop being a wuss you just pulled a muscle"! Then I find the answer it is a combination of Ibrprofen every 3 hours and a large Gluvine (mulled wine), every 2 hours, and my snowboarding seems to have got better.
Day Days five and six flew by like the red runs I was demolishing with ease,
if if only I hadn't bust my rib, the Park was starting to look really tempting, that will probably have to wait for next year, then again I'm off next week I wonder if I can find a cheap flight to Salzburg?
