Schi-foan (foan, foan, foan)
The little knitted skiers (Skiers!) on my new sweater reminded me I had some pictures of my own early days of skiing (like I say, I got the photobug from my Dad. Thanks Papa :) ).
As far as broad generalisations go I'd say most Austrian toddlers get on their first skis as soon as they're out of diapers (I remember watching in disbelief as a little kid wedel skied down a black slope). Or at least it used to be, I think really it 's been snow boards since the 90s. Oh well, I am old-fashioned already! :D
The song I am quoting in the post title is a pop tune from 1976 sung in a broad local dialect (lower Austrian) all about being stoked to go skiing :)
So here is to skiing, nostalgia and to cute sweaters that'll keep me warm this winter, snow or no!
