Day 5: Back over to Lech, and exploring the new Schroken area

By on March 6, 2014 in Austria

Going over to Lech was a good idea… or was it?

First there was the dreaded ski down to Stuben via run 17. I don’t know why, but I just don’t like that run. I don’t know if it is the length, or the crowds (on this occasion) that put me off, I just find it tough. Some of the lift lines were horrendous.

The bus to Lech was packed. We couldn’t get on the first one that came, and had to wait 15 minutes for the next. I seriously question whether or nut these buses are safe as if they had to do an emergency stop all the skiers, and their skis, would end up as a massive pile at the front of the bus.

But is was a glorious day out on the slopes….

However, one problem was that everyone seemed to be going where we were going, and when we got there we faced by even longer lift queues. The situation was not helped by the fact that once you decided to head to the Schroken area you were committed to the plan, there was no alternative to be taken…. No bail out route….

Wow!

Wow!

Stunning...

Stunning…

But having said that, there were some good runs…. It was just all too crowded at the lifts.
