Travel: Kitzbühel for the Hahnenkamm

Well, this isn’t what I had planned.  But due to lack of snow in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the women’s World Cup races there have been cancelled.  So with less than a week before race events commence, I find myself scrambling to track down lodging in a booked-solid Kitzbühel, Austria for what is undoubtedly the most celebrated race stop on the World Cup circuit – the Hahnenkamm!

I will miss seeing the women race but this is an exciting turn of events and am looking forward to watching the range of disciplines (super-g, slalom and of course, downhill), intense race course and fervent crowds.  Perhaps sharing these vintage hotel labels will help channel a vacant room my way!  If you have any recommendations or tips for this resort town, please do share. . .
