Things have been a bit quiet on the blog this month. Work has been crazy busy and I’ve just returned from a ski trip in Austria, but I thought I’d get back into the swing of things by wrapping up all the highlights from 2015. I try to write one of these posts every year as I really enjoy looking back on the things I’ve done. Biggest personal achievements On the first day of January 2015, I skied my first ever black run!..

It wasn’t until we arrived in Mayrhofen that we realised how easy it was to access Hintertux (and also free for skiers with a Zillertal Valley ski pass) so we decided to give it a go and we’re so glad we did!..
