It’s the heart of summer so I figured a shot to help cool us all down was in order. This week’s photo comes from the ski slopes above the gorgeous Austrian city of Innsbruck. While visiting I stumbled onto a fantastic ski and snowboarding competition where local athletes showed off their high flying spins, turns, flips, and periodic crash-landing skills. Situated about two thirds of the way up the mountain the competition provided a gorgeous setting with an absolutely amazing backdrop out over the valley.
If you get a chance to visit the Tyrol region and the slopes around Innsbruck I highly recommend it!
