Skiing in Kuhtai.
Google says you pronounce it Car-tyre, locals say Coo-tie, whichever, Kuhtai is a high, 2,020m, ski resort.
On the positive this means it gets a lot of snow and has a long season, often November to May.
On the negative this means it is a soulless place with no trees and ski runs that simply follow whatever line down the mountain the piste bashers choose to take.
It is a ski resort where the sight of long, slim skis being carried by Lycra clad skiers out numbers baggy-arsed skiers with planks by some considerable margin.
Even me, who generally finds it difficult to match the picture of a piste-map with the reality of what’s on the ground, got to grips with Kuhtai within an hour.
A good place to go when all the best Austrian ski resorts around are losing their snow, but not somewhere I’d choose to ski for very long.
