Our New Village - Kitzbuhel

Hello Kitzbuhel!!  Our friends from Verona, Judy & Tim, rejoined us for this new experience for all.  The newly renovated rooms in the Christophorus awaited - and Judy once again outdid herself on accommodations.  Our two bedroom/two bath apartment - with sitting room and kitchen - was perfect. AND only a couple of blocks from the old, main part of Kitz and a couple of blocks from the race finish area!!  NO more 30-40 minute walks to the races.

A very comfortable apartment awaited us at the Christophorus Hotel in Kitzbuhel, Austria.
Thanks Judy for once again finding great accomodations.

These race runs can be seen from our hotel balcony.

Tuesday we all walked to the finish area to get the lay of the land and stayed to watch the first of the downhill practice runs.

Waiting for the downhill practice run to start.

Ted just finished his successful practice run.
Wednesday and Thursday were spent 'nosing' around town and a little side trip to nearby Zell am See, where Gary had his most interesting Club sandwich for lunch - it included an EGG!!, and a couple of mystery flavors.

We took a day trip to Zell am see.  We appreciated Kitzbuhel even more when we returned.
Friday is race day.  OH NO!!  The weather finally turned ugly - the sun went into hiding - snow moved in - AND the Super G was cancelled today;-(  How disappointing.  Don't know how much more shopping we can do?!?!?  But, guess we will have to try some more.

Will also pick up a few pictures of our little village and post some of those a little later.

So - until we have something more (and interesting) to post - E & G
