Soll, Austria, 9th - 16th January 2010.

A selection of photo's from our week in Soll, Austria. This was our fourth time and it gets better and better. As usual we stayed in the excellent Hotel Tulpe, managed by Joe, Linda and Thomas (El Cowboy) the Barman.

The morning view looking out from the balcony over the Hochsoll Gondola station, the "home run", and up to the Hohe Salve at 1829 m.

Halfway down the Hohe Salve looking down the Red run to the Hoch Soll top station. The red gondola on the left is the Hohe Salve lift.

Skiing down from the Stockl lift.

Daniel and his "class", somewhere in the Ski Welt with the Hohe Salve rising out of the cloud in the distance.


Inside the bar at the Alpen Igloo Village in Brixen.


Martin and me trying to look cool in an iglioo!

Daniel, Francis and Doreen taking a light refreshment outside the igloo's.


Lorna commenting on my 5 Euro Vodka cocktail in a 3 Euro ice glass! You get to keep the glass though.


My one and only assisted attempt at the rail in the "funpark" above Soll.


The Almfreid, tucked away in the trees away from the main runs. The woman that runs it along with her husband are both in their eighties and they cook the food to order whilst you sit in their kitchen!


The food is amazing but unfortuneatly the toilet (above) is a little basic!


Lorna and Doreen at the top of Scheffau, with the Wilder Kaider in the background.

Myself, Keefsa, Lorna and Doreen, having "another" drink on the way down to Ellmau.

Rudi and his band, Insanity Sauce, filmed very badly by me across the bar in the Salvenstadt pub in Soll, Januray 2010.
