Skiing- Flachau, Austria

Last Sunday, Jason and I went skiing in Flachau, Austria. It is about 45 minutes away from Salzburg. It was our first time skiing together and Jason's first time skiing since he was a teenager. He did a great job and I am so proud of him! I had a blast! (notice the I, not the we) ;)

When we first arrived, we took the lift up and noticed that all the blue slopes (easier ones) were below us. Unfortunately, Jason had to start off on a red one (intermediate), which he wasn't too happy about. After several spills and sometime later, Jason finally made it to the bottom of the mountain. I met him at the bottom and together we went on the blue slopes so I could give him a few tips. I so wish we would have done this to begin with. After some practice, Jason did very well but I am pretty sure that the first slope ruined his chi and I can't really blame him.

We grabbed lunch at noon before heading back out on the slopes. We ventured back up the lift and went on a very long blue slope that was a ton of fun before having to go back down the red one. Jason did amazing! There is nothing like teaching and watching someone succeed. Did I mention how proud I am of him?

By the end of the day, we were beat. It was such a wonderful day! I just love trying new things and exploring with my hubby. Not sure if I will get him out on the slopes again anytime soon but I am so glad that we have this wonderful memory!!
