Ski break in Austria

There is this thing here in the Alpine countries called ski break. Each year in early February, schools break for one or two weeks to allow families time to go on ski trips. Seriously. We asked around and decided that we would go on ski break to Serfaus, Austria, to a fantastic kinderhotel in the Alps. There were a few families from ISSH who were also going there, so that was a huge bonus. The resort had a pool, a kids club, and of course, skiing! It really had something for everyone, and while it was a big splurge for us, we made great memories participating in the Alpine tradition of a typical ski week holiday!

It’s paczki day! Not as good at Jewel though!
