A Weekend in the Mountains

A Weekend in the Mountains

It already seems like ages ago when actually it only was last weekend that we were in the mountains. They were such lovely two days that I just had to show you what we got up to.

All started with an early, early Saturday morning. After packing the car we, me and the boyfriend, had an about 3 ½ hours drive before us until we reached the lovely mountains. We went to Hochgurgel, it’s in Austria, near Sölden. The drive up was quite uneventful. We had some traffic, some snow and quite dull weather altogether. However, once we made our way up the pass the sun greeted us in all her glory!

We quickly checked in and it was off to the slopes – yay! Just look at the conditions – all the snow and sun you want! Long story short we had some great time on the slopes before indulging in a Wienerschnitzel and some chips – yummy.

The remaining afternoon wasn’t as nice so after like two runs we ended up in our hotel room hiding from the fog. The evening was filled with some more food, a dip in the pool and some good old TV session.

Sunday, sun, snow and the mountains

Sunday, our second and last day, looked just as beautiful as the Saturday so we were up bright and early.

After quite some hours on the slopes, we got ourselves some yummy dessert and it was time to say goodbye to the mountains! Oh, how lovely it was. Even I if it just was for two days and lots of driving was involved, it was so worth it!


This weekend will be looking quite different but ever so exciting I hope. Do you like the mountains? Do you ski or snowboard? Tell me in the comments down below and don’t forget to give my blog a little follow or visit my other social media pages such as  Instagram & Twitter.

Until next time, xx

    This looks like perfection. I’ve never been but I’ve always wanted to ski. I don’t think I’d be very good at it but how I imagine a ski holiday (not too different to how you’ve described it) sounds like my idea of heaven x

      I hope you get to experience it one time – it’s an absolute delight to be in the mountains. xx

    Gosh, what beautiful mountains! I’m so jealous that you live a few hours away from such beautiful scenery – I’ve never been anywhere near a snowy mountain before!

      Oh, you definitely should once see the mountains. It’s so worth it. xx

    Wow, your trip looked terrific! My friend was recently on a Ski Trip in Italy in a place similar to this, although her food didn’t look half as good as yours did! I’m so glad I’ve found your blog too, I’ll go and check out some more posts,

    Stunning photos! Those mountains look incredible! I’ve only been skiing once and I’ve been wanting to go again but the rest of my family isn’t too keen on it. It sounds like you had a lovely weekend away!

      Thanks Annie. We used to go with the whole family but my mum is quite happy to let us go alone as she doesn’t like the cold that much. xx

    I’ve never done any wintery sports but with your post and the olympics going on, it’s making me really want to try some stuff out. Of course, being my impatient self, I’d want to be an expert the moment I start and I know that’s not gonna happen haha 🙂

    Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous! I’ve never tried skiing or snowboarding mainly because I’m scared of heights and there’s no way I’d be throwing myself down a mountain I’d stand at the top crying knowing me! Looks like you had a fab time though, can’t beat a weekend break sometimes!

    Your pictures are gorgeous and your weekend looked so relaxing, even with the skiing! I’m not a fan of the cold, but I like the idea of a Bailey’s hot chocolate by a fire.
