Travel Inspiration: January 2019, Austria

Alpbach, Austria

I learned to ski only a year ago but it was something I instantly fell in love with. Putting the time in to finally give it a go was inspiring in and of itself. A reminder to continue to push myself.

For me, the inspiration from my ski trips can obviously be pulled from the beautiful desaturated natural surroundings. With the fresh snow, tall trees, and powerful mountains, there is a certain state of mind that accompanies me when I look around. It feels fresh and cleansing.

The less obvious is the movement. The snow being carved and the loose powder sliding down the mountain in reaction. The glide of the lift bringing you up and over the same ground you’ve just imprinted. The sway of the body switching from left to right. These organic movements pull me in.
