Meeting up with my family in Seefeld at one of the most popular wintersport places in the Alps, these mountains were no match for us! Don't miss the Austrian beer and sausages, some of the best in Europe.

It was literally a 3 minute drive from our stay in Seefeld. I primarily stayed on the blue and red slopes. Black diamonds are a little to crazy for me.

We had some epic eats at the SportAlm which is a restaurant at the foot of the mountain. You could basically snowboard right to the bar and grab a beer, ideal.
