The ski trip that took 28 years to plan

Kitzbühel, Austria

At the peak, looking out across the Alps, it suddenly hit me: this was the place I dreamed of, nearly 30 years ago. When my sister Sue first taught me how to ski in the late 1970s, I would dream at night after a day of skiing of a place like this, with panoramas of the world's great peaks and near endless runs.

Finally, a business trip brought me here (while I can still stand on skis!).
