The perfect day of skiing in Flachau

You Are An Adventure Story strapped on their skis

Fresh snow, perfectly groomed slopes and the best conditions. Flachau's appearance has changed somewhat since Maggy and Anja's (You Are An Adventure Story) last visit in summer. While the region was green six months previously and the peaks were clear of snow, now the bloggers are welcomed by snow-covered valleys and mountains in winter.

The skis are freshly waxed, the car is packed and anticipation for the upcoming ski holiday is huge. Maggy and Anja (“You Are An Adventure Story“) head from Munich to Flachau, where three action-packed days are waiting for them on and off-piste. These two outdoor bloggers are regularly in SalzburgerLand and discover the regions again and again. Maggy enthuses: “SalzburgerLand is particularly suitable for us because it is simply super diverse. We have seen almost all the regions and learned to ski here last year, kind of.” This time, what they learned is implemented and improved in wintry Flachau. And here’s what it looks like, the perfect day of skiing at the Snow Space Salzburg:

Breakfast at a lofty height

If you move around a lot in the fresh air, you need plenty of energy reserves. That’s why Maggy and Anja’s day begins with a rich buffet breakfast. However, they do not take breakfast in the hotel, but high above Wagrain. How does this work? With the unique gondola breakfast in the G-LINK commuter cable car. “So far, our personal highlight has definitely been the breakfast. Swinging along in the cable car while eating delicious food. That was really mega!” says Maggy, thrilled.

Skiing is the best

Fortified, the two bloggers head from the gondola directly onto the ski slope. At 1,700 metres, at the mountain station of the Grafenbergbahn, their first day of skiing starts at Snow Space. Click, Clack. The skis are strapped on and the stunning panorama is enjoyed. The slopes are deserted early in the morning and the two have the freshly groomed descents all to themselves. After a ride on the G-LINK commuter cable car, you are spoilt for choice. Should we ski down towards Flachau or towards St. Johann? Or would we rather take the Hermann Maier tour? Anja and Maggy carve their turns and enjoy the fresh snow. And slowly, the sun starts to show itself. Skier’s hearts – what more do you want?

A bit of skill never hurts

Skiing there, where ski ace Hermann Maier regularly carves his turns. This motivates you to work on your own skiing technique. Carving, weaving, poles. Maggy and Anja complete a professional ski tour in Flachau with Markus Nothnagl from the Wagrain Ski School. As part of the training, there are some ‘aha’ moments for the bloggers. And not only does the guide take a close look at the skiing technique – the girls can see for themselves how they are doing on the ski slope through the video footage.

After skiing comes Après-Ski

First work, then play. Those who exhaust themselves on the slopes can treat themselves to a reward in the ski hut without a guilty conscience. The stop-off for refreshments is particularly good at the Hubertusalm, where delicious Kasnocken are served. And because a perfect day of skiing should also include a round of après-ski, the obligatory digestive Schnapps must not be missed. With this, the bloggers round off their day before carving their last turns down towards the valley. After all, you want to be sure to be fit for the slopes again the next morning, without question!
