Final day of skiing in St. Anton

Cris and I wake up bright and early...right around 10:30. We make some delicious scrambled eggs and toast for everyone. Chad, Cris, Andy, Chandler (a friend of Andy's), and I get our ski clothes on and head for the slopes. Andy decides to take us across the mountain, by way of skiing, lifts, and a bus, to Lech. It is a nice area with fewer people where we will end up for the day. At first the visibilty and conditions are less than favorable, but they get better as we traverse the mountain. A few runs of that day turned out to be my favorite of the whole trip. We hit a little bit of powder and the scenery was fantastic. Chad had to leave around 2:00 to meet Jennifer. Around 3:30 the lifts started to close so we waited an hour or so and caught a bus. On our walk back we stoped by Picadilly and had a couple beers. We then stopped by the store to get some bread and drinks to hold us over until dinner. We met back up with Chad and Jen, got dressed, and headed to Maximillion. Cris and I split a plate of pork weinerschnitzel and another dish that I forgot the name of. It consisted of beef, bacon, potatoes, topped with a fried egg...absolutely delicious. As an overall experience, I consider the meal one of my top ten of all time. Good drinks, great food, friends, and being in St. Anton...the whold shabang. After dinner we went to Platzl then finished at Bar Cuba. Cris and I did some dancing, mostly with other people, and met some Austrian high school girls. We got their number, but didn't really expect anything from that.
