Exhilerating Extra’s
Some of these are weather dependant, but to give you some idea of what we’ve
got lined up, and so you can budget for the week, here’s the lowdown:

Partynite @ White Lounge (see www.white-lounge.at)


At sunset, travel by Austria’s biggest cablecar to an igloo village some 2000 m
high! Enjoya cocktail in a glass made from ice and watch a film in a cinema
made completely of snow…this place is amazing. Iglu party Tues 25th March.
Reservation neccesarry (Overnight stays incl dinner, sauna and accomm also
available on request).

Toboganning in the Forgotten Valley – we travel through the inside of


amountain to the wilderness of Floitental – a beautiful deserted valley. We walk
with fire torches up a snow covered mountain track to a 170 yr old traditional
alm (mountain hut), where we hear Wilfred yodel, play with a washboard, and
take part in a cow milking competition (I kid you not), whilst sampling schnapps
and toboganning down back at the end of an unforgettable evening in beautiful
surroundings. UNMISSABLE.
Cost €35 euros (includes return taxi from Mayrhofen to Ginzling, fire torch,
toboggan hire and safety instruction, 3 x schnapps, all entertainment – cow
milking, live music…and a glimpse of the fabled snow monkey!

An Evening at Freddy & Freida’s


A perennial favourite. This evening cannot be accurately explained. It’s
entertaining, memorable(from what people remember…), bizarre and quite
surreally unique. Lets just say, trust me to give you an experience which
involves the strangest looking hosts you’ll ever lay eyes on, hitting nails into a
tree trunk, homemade mystical schnapps and the most
compelling/irritating/ingenious games you’ll ever come across.
Cost: €30 (includes:return taxi,1 large beer/ wine, 3 x mystical meisterwurz
schnapps- only 16 places available due to size of mountain hut).

Bowling Evening/ Fondue – on request
