Just got back from my trip to Austria and seeing all those fab ski fashion brands in the shops over there, I really got inspired to write this post about my Top 4 favorite brands of this season and show you some highlights of their collections. If you haven’t decided about your ski outfit yet, or need some last minute Christmas wishlist inspiration, the brands in my post may be of help. They are from Austria, South Tyrol and The Netherlands and have one thing in common: Main goal is to design stunning ski fashion to make you shine like never before, on and off slope!
Do you feel it already? That restless winterwonderland fever, that makes you want to pack your stuff and head to the Alps asap. To add some extra fever to it, I’ve selected some really nice, colorful suitcase essentials. Just to spice it up a bit and make you shine like a diamant in the Alps.
Well my friends….the Almrauschparty at Rosi’s wonderful Sonnbergstuben in Kitzbühel, that was quite a blast! I’m still reminiscing about this highlight Trachten event in the Kitzbühler Alps. And my feet are still sore from dancing, because that’s what the 800 fancy dressed guests did, dance until the crack of dawn! Despite being a fairly insider event – mainly German and Austrian guests (we were the only Dutch ones) – it’s definitely a must-go. Especially if you’re a die-hard Oktoberfest fan, this event is indisputably your prelude to the largest Volksfest in the world. Once inside, you instantly get caught by the flow and mood of Austrian tradition, Gemütlichkeit, Tracht and glamour. Let me tell you the 5 reasons why you should go there to have an unforgettable night out!
Always wanted to have a look inside the most expensive chalet in the Austrian Alps? Well…this is it! The Chalet N in Oberlech, is where the richest among us relax and have a blast in maximum privacy. Surrounded by top notch amenities and in one of the most beautiful and high end ski resorts in Austria. Are you ready to absorb some eye candy images of Alpine style at the highest level?
For quite some time now I’ve been wanting to share my favorite Instagrammers of the moment with you. The ones that inspire me big time! I don’t know about you, but checking my Insta is what I love to do first thing in the morning. Probably just like you, I have favorites in many different categories. Today I start with the ones that definitely know how to capture the beauty of the (snowy) mountains. Why start with these? Because my passion for the mountains is definitely the main reason why I started blogging about mountain travel, life and leisure in the first place! I hope you too will get inspired by this bunch of mountain and snow lovers. Enjoy!
The drive to 4 star superior hotel DAS.GOLDBERG in Bad Hofgastein was a lovely one. Heavy snowfall had created this amazing scenery. The climb all the way up to the hotel was quite challenging, but was definitely worth it. When I walked into the hotel, the first thing that struck me was the lovely smell of fresh, roasted coffee. A good sign, instantly felt the cozyness and hospitality.
Ischgl is one of the ski villages I always like to come back to. The superb ski facilities, the variety of hotels and fine restaurants and that sparkling party vibe, it’s quite something. This village offers a lot of different things, even things you wouldn’t think of in the first place. Like a respectable Art collection, at the Elizabeth Arthotel.
Obertauern is one of the hotspots among the major ski resorts in the Alps. It’s known for snow from November to early May, for après-ski and great events. But also for 100 kilometers of slopes and 26 ski lifts. The Ski-Round Super Seven carries skiers to the 7 highest peaks of Obertauern. Knowing this, I wanted to see and experience it myself. You guys know that I am a huge fan of the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis area, but hey…I am always in for something new! So, last January we went to Obertauern. I was very excited. Would it really be such a hotspot? In terms of ski experience, snow conditions, good cuisine, excellent service and fun in apresski? Expectations were high!
Staying in Hinterglemm this summer surprised us in so many ways. Not only because of the beautiful Alpine Palace New Balance Luxus Resort and its staff, but also because of some quite interesting people who live in this village. For example Flo Wolf and his wood art gallery GlemmArt. I already wrote about him in my Alpine Palace post . But this time I would like to introduce you to Bartl Enn, the best Schnaps Brenner ( brewer ) in the world!
Let me tell you about Hotel Post in Lermoos. This gives me so much pleasure. Post is one of Ludwigs all-time favorites. Not only because of the lovely suits, facilities and exquisite cuisine, but mainly because of the people who are there to make your stay an unforgettable one. Recently we received the new brochure and we were very pleased to see all those familiar faces again.
