The Kitzbuhel ski area is very much open right now – in the last few days we were over there to get our first runs of the new season. The slopes were really uncrowded and in great shape. After the skiing we dropped by the Kitzbuhel Christmas market in the centre of the resort for some hot wine and sausages. As you would imagine with Kitzbuhel the Christmas market was mighty pretty and atmospheric, slightly smaller than I imagined although it did take up one whole street in the medieval centre of the resort. There can’t be many places on earth to compare with the atmosphere of central Kitzbuhel in winter!
