Blue skies, glistening snow, perfectly groomed slopes. But nobody is here. A scenario that would have been unimaginable for all of us just a year ago. Today it is reality. The winter conditions in the Austrian Alps are absolutely perfect at the moment, the lifts in the ski resorts are running, but due to the closure of hotels and restaurants, as well as travel restrictions, it is currently not possible for our guests to get to the mountains. But the longing for the mountains remains. So we thought, if you can’t join us this year, why not bring the snowy mountains and holiday feeling to your home?
We bring the mountains to the people
Are you also dreaming of winter sports fun in the Austrian mountains, the feeling of freedom and the crystal clear mountain air on the slopes? This winter is special: while the mountains are glistening in white splendour and the slopes in Austria are perfectly prepared, all the hotels and restaurants remain closed and you and all the other winter sports fans from all over Europe sadly cannot come to us.
For this reason we asked Karin Patterer from Krimml to write down her best recipes for traditional and tasty delicacies for all of us.
Whether it’s Kaspressknödelsuppe, Käsespätzle or Kaiserschmarren – cook your way through the recipes and bring a little mountain hut feeling to your home. We would love to see a photo of your homemade treats on Facebook or Instagram under the hashtag #wintersportsambassador.
Winter holidays in the Alps are a fixture in the year for many people from all over Europe. Many of them have been spending time in the mountains for generations, enjoying the breathtaking scenery, the fresh air, the endless expanse, ... Because of Covid19 they had to give up the mountains this season and cancel their INTERSPORT Rent ski rental bookings. But the love of the mountains remains. We have received so many emails from people all over Europe who are passionate about winter sports expressing their deep attachment to the mountains. We have summarised excerpts of these in this video.
