It was a question raised in a famous article in Powder Magazine 15 or 20 years ago and although the sport has survived since then, if you read the local group chats and ski news around America the last few years, you will undoubtedly start asking yourself if indeed, the sport of skiing has finally lost its soul.
In Kitzbuhel and Austria we overcame the challenges, cashed in favors, got tickets to the races, threw down some Williams and even skied some powder. Daron Rahlves led a few of our brave souls down a dark and twisty trail and showed them some of our hidden secrets in Kitzbuhel. We even made it over to Zurs and learned why it was always Warren Miller’s favorite destination.
The short answer yes! Long answer… the impacts and uncertainty of travel in the age of Covid-19 is presenting unprecedented challenges to all aspects of our lives. As of now all our trips are scheduled and we plan to proceed as soon as travel restrictions allow. Below are the links to our planned and scheduled DreamTrips.
We had five crazy trips this winter with five different groups of fun, adventurous ADL members. On each trip there were people we met or things that happened which created hilarious stories and memories to last a lifetime. We can’t fit them all on here as honestly, there were too many but, we can pick a few of the best images and share more details about the stories behind them.
Bist Du Wild Genug? Our 5th Annual Austria Dream Trip was one for the ages. We had a cohesive group of 13 with a mix of ADL veterans, a couple newbies, three adventurous women with everyone sharing a passion for World Cup racing and wild free skiing. Are you wild enough?
