EVENTS: Not the Hahnenkamm, but still a lot of fun...
Embassy of Austria

Austria and skiing are almost synonymous. Carving down the mountain slopes is second nature to most Austrians and probably one of the things Austrians miss most when living in Washington. To make up for this, the Austrian Ambassador, Mrs. Eva Nowotny, decided to take the Embassy staff skiing and
the "Austrian Embassy Ski Team" conquered Mount Liberty in southern Pennsylvania. "Of course you cannot compare it to the Alps", Ambassador Nowotny said, "but it was good sport, the conditions were excellent, we had lots of fun and above all it was togetherness and doing something as a group."
