Passport to Adventure The Ziller Valley and Zell am See Austria
After filming Europe’s ski resorts for the last ten years, Mark Jennings &Julie Conover share their discovery of two of the lesser known Austrian resorts. Their journey begins with a visit to the world famous Neuschwanstein Castle, where they learn the saga of eccentric King Ludwig. From Bavaria, Julie &Mark travel into the Salzburg region of Austria to Zell Am See, "little village by the lake", to explore the massive Europa Sport Region. In the Ziller Valley, they ski the Hintertux glacier and launch Julie off the slopes on a paraglider! They then join a robust group of Austrians for music, schnapps and a hellacious nighttime sledding adventure that leaves Mark with an unwanted souvenir! Threaded throughout the program is a celebration of the traditional lifestyle with folk music, dance and plenty of local color!
