One the most beautiful places I get to ski

1.19-25 Antholz, Italy, Southern Tyrol region
My third week of racing was spent in Italy, and because it is one of the most beautiful places that I get to ski I wanted to share some images with you.
Looking up to the mountains from a sharp turn on the race course.
On our final day, a few of us went for a long classic ski up towards a pass above the biathlon venue. If we continued on to the top, after passing this cabin, we would reach the mountainious border of Austria.

The classic ski up was fun, but it would have been a lot more fun to take one of these sleds back down the trail. Alpine sledding is quite popular here, and often in these mountain towns you can find sleds for rent at the bottom go these trails.

On an afternoon run on the ski trails.
