sledging from birgitzer alm

[posted: ]  [0 comments]

sledging is one of the really fun winter activities. i recently went to birgitzer alm with friends, and since it was already getting late in the afternoon, we took “a shortcut” and were rewarded with an extra section of deep snow ski slope, and (once the clouds cleared a bit) nice views.
extra fun!
