Dable Stuff

A series of incidents involving the Dables and their associates

Mayrhofen

Posted by dablefamily on February 20, 2012

We had a lovely time in Mayrhofen last week, staying at the Hotel St Georg, and skiing on the slopes round the Zillertal – the Ziller Valley. Edmund and Miles both enjoyed a week of boarding rather than skiiing, and hooked up Nick and Chloe, who were also staying at the St Georg. We hardly saw then during the day on the mountain. The first three days Antonia and I were in lessons with Klaus, an excellent instructor from Skishule Mayrhofen 3000. Out of season Klaus is a dairy farmer. During the season he teaches skiing. Miles and Edmund had excellent boarding lessons from the same ski school. Unfortunately Cordi wasn’t so lucky. She was with the grumpy Charlie, also from Skishule Mayrhofen 3000. On Tues Cordi got lost when skiing with Charlie’s group. Did Charlie bother to call anyone to say he’d lost Cordi ? No !  We only found out when a kindly lady, who’d found Cordi sobbing at a lift, had called Antonia.

Apart from that one low point, we had a great week in Mayrhofen. The ski area is much larger than Alpbach, but it still has plenty of Tirolean charm. To celebrate our appreciation for the Tirol, Antonia and Cordi both got dirndls, and I’ve got some lederhosen. Coming soon to a party near you…
