In the UK, on May Day children dance around the May Pole. In Austria’s Lungau, they erect the tallest pole they can find. Then they climb it.
It’s been an amazing summer so far in Lungau and a couple of weekends ago, my friend, Isabella, and I managed to do some mountain biking and hiking.
It’s easy to get complacent living here in Lungau, where the snow is consistent and the views are fabulous. But every so often a day comes along with the most amazing conditions, where views like these just blow you away! This is what makes skiing in Austria so wonderful and different each and every season and day!
This clip is taken from “Days of my Youth”, a new Red Bull film. It includes some amazing skiing, like this chute, skied by adrenaline junkie Cody Townsend.
Here’s some basic information about the Tauern Circuit. It’s great fun and well signed, in both directions, so it’s hard to get lost in either direction.
