Gurgl, Austria

Updated: Mar 6

Dave Ryding talks about the "Diamond of the Alps"

At the very end of Ötztal valley about an hour and twenty minute drive west from Innsbruck you'll find one of Alps' best and snow-surest ski areas.  Ski-in, ski-out Gurgl, the only spot in Austria which is home to three mountains which reach up above the 3,000m mark suitable for all levels of skier.

Our special guest for this episode is Dave “the Rocket” Ryding, an English World Cup alpine slalom ski racer. Considered the most accomplished modern day British skier of all time, he has competed for Great Britain in four Olympics, seven World Championships, and he also won the Europa Cup. Dave’s best World Cup result was a win at the Kitzbühel slalom, and he placed 4th at the race in November at his home ski area of Gurgl, Austria. Dave also just placed third at the Madonna slalom in December.
