Hello from Colorado Skiing

Being from the Austrian Mountains I LOVE skiing. When seeing ski pics in Summer (in Chile) I do sometimes get a little jealous even though summer is nicer anyway.

Today is the first time for me to ski in 2010 and the first time in Colorado. There are no waiting times probably as the prices are so extreme (30.000 CLP)

Since nobody in Chile uses winter tires for their cars every car has to put chains. They rent them for 10.000 CLP and put them on for another 5k CLP.

So skiing for sure is freaking expensive compared to the GDP but also in EUR terms compared to the mother of all ski resorts (Austria)

Here are some pics shot from my mobile. I might edit the post once at home to add more detail.

Me on the chairlift from where I am blogging this:

Como se dice?

a very short post just to say all is good. I have not been very active but as my tag line says: Don’t expect regular updates 😉

For my non Spanish speaking readers. The headline “como se dice” means: “How do you say?” Reason for the post. I have started taking Spanish classes again and it feels great to be able to manage life situations better and better without having to rely on mi amor. As I mentioned before I start work at 5.30 am and I rely heavily on my Internet for work. The other day the internet was not working and I did not want to wake Liz at this terrible time. I tried and dialed the number of tech support of VTR. The guy on the other end was very friendly and professional. He spoke slowly and clearly and we were able to solve the problem. I was very proud. On another note. I am gaining fame here in Chile as you can see from the poster below:
