Back to Hintertux again, in the beautiful district of Tirol in the country of Austria. Training on a glacier in the mountains of the Alps. It is a ski culture and a beautiful land dedicated to pursue the dream of sliding on snow. It’s amazing how we travel across the world and stand in a line with hundreds of people. To ride multiple gondolas up a series of mountains to a glacier, 9,000ft up. To ski. The experience and uniqueness is truly beautiful. The culture is truly unique. The training is simply superb. But when you take a step back, don’t look toward the ski culture near as much, but instead, take the time to meet the locals. You then start to see it for what it is, a small farming town in the countryside. With hard working people, local produce and a sense of past. Something that brings faith in humanity. A simplicity of soul, to be happy something like this. Still exists.
