The weather made snow conditions tough on race day, but also made for beautiful sunsets along the Drava river!

The Infamous Kitzbuhl Downhill

Kitzbuhl, Austria

Dad & I decided to spend New Years watching the men race the infamous Kitzbuhl downhill.  There was so much excitement for ski racing and I was very impressed by the male athletes throwing themselves down such a challenging course!

Thank you Pinky's Hut for making out stop in Kitzbuhl possible!
