You can see this very modern ski jump from Andreas Hofer Park. It's on the top of mount Bergise, and it was built by Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid in 2001. It's considered to be the most modern ski jump in the world, making it the capital of Innsbruck as the quintessential winter Olympics.
If you are visiting the Austrian Tyrol and you have a car, visiting Küthai is mandatory. It is located at 2020 meters altitude and is the highest ski resort in Austria and Tyrol's lowest populated town. For snow lovers it's ideal, but even for those who are so fond of (as was our case) is a beautiful excursion where you can see unique landscapes. It's recommended to take the food to sit and enjoy the landscape, although it's better to call it one the best postcards Tyrol. That was our experience of the Küthai, going up on one road and going down on another, can find other beautiful villages along the way.
Last week we visited the cathedral of skiing: Kitzbühel. We share the passion for snow skiing. For this reason we visited Kitzbühel and the feeling was very special, the test environment, the history, the landing pad for the world cup. Ski resorts around this town will make abundantly clear that these in a special place, where skiing, more than a sport or leisure activity is a way of seeing life, a way to deal with it, skiing in Kitzbühel is mostly a way to get around quickly. All kitzbühel is a holiday during the week of testing (drop and superG) with bars and screens on the streets. In the drop test, to see ve is fastest, only 60 people took part, the best in the world. About 60 000 people attend. Tests begin on November 30 and last two hours. There's only one chance to prove you're the fastest. The public is divided between Austrians and Swiss. It is very competitive. The atmosphere is of celebration. After the tests the skiers celebrate and later the party continues in the streets of the village, waiting for the test the next day ... Recommended for all those ve love the snow.
