New life in Schönfeld


Now that we have some snow, we took a trip up to Schönfeld, and had a brilliant walk along Rosinental, where I posted we walked in the autumn.DSCN3490Swingle leapt in and out of the snow, eating so much of it, she was tiddling all the way back!DSCN3485 (2)This is the first time this path has been cleared for about three years.DSCN3493 (2)We really needed the snow shoes, so we’ll be going again when the weather has a clear day as it will take longer than in the last time!DSCN3484 (2)There were touring skiers around which annoyed the dog as she thought the place was hers!DSCN3492 (2)Along with the path clearing, the loipes are being made, although without the slots, maybe just for the classic skiers.DSCN3500But one lift is now open, so is the hotel, and there were kids pootling up and down the slope.DSCN3499Schönfeld is open again, and yes, it is good to see the new life there, and in the summer it is ours! That evening there was a report on the local news about the re-opening, a German company and some local people have invested in the area. Brilliant! DSCN3486

Hope for Schönfeld


On a recent walk in Schönfeld, we saw that the main hotel is at last being done up, hopefully for business this winter. I was liking the idea of the area returning to quietness, but it would have been a shame for it all to be derelict. Maybe this winter the lifts will re-open, the car-park installed and the loipes up to Rosinensee.  There was a gondola from a Mayrhofen lift left outside, maybe someone from that big resort is expanding.  We’ll see this winter!
