This season looks as if it may well be one of the best on record, for Europe at least. We hit the slopes a couple of weeks' ago and had a great time, we'll let you have the details later.
On 10/01/08 we asked the question "Where can skibikes be hired?" This year we found the answer; well in Saalbach/Hinterglemm we did. Yes it's official - 2 ski rental shops in Saalbach have Stalmach Snow Horse skibikes for rental at 25 Euros per day including footskis, or 33 Euros if you need boots as well. The ski shops in question have their fleet of skibikes on display outside for all to see.
Should you happen to be staying at the Glemmtalerhof Hotel in Hinterglemm, then things are even better, they have 5 of the latest Brenter CM's available for the use of hotel guests (possibly with a rental fee), you have to provide your own boots though.
And so to the competition! Want to be a 'Goat Person' but cannot make the trip to Hinterglemm for the hat? Then we are here to help. We have 2 Goatstall baseball caps to give away, one for the funniest picture sent to us, and one for the prettiest picture sent to us - must have a winter sport theme. So get clicking and send those pictures in, the closing date is: 30th April 2008, PS: The Goatstall has been voted best apres ski venue in Europe for the last few years we believe.
