We here at JF.com are thrilled to bring you the magnificent photo essays of Andrew DiGiovanni, a US ex-pat now living in Vienna and teaching school there. Proving you should meet as many people on a ski lift as you can, Andrew and I bonded the first time I ever skied my beloved Magic Mountain in Vermont. We lost touch after I published my Magic article in 2019, but a chance mis-dial last winter (I was trying trying to call “Chucky Cordova,” but Siri sucks and called “Andrew DiGiovanni” instead…) and so he and I reconnected…but he was in Austria!
As we laughingly caught up Andrew told me about these charming little email postcards/stories he puts together and calls Der Uberseelehrer (The Overseas Teacher). Since I run an international sports news site, and being ever resourceful, I pitched Andrew the idea of some Euro-centric skiing issues of Der Uberseelehrer to run in conjunction with jayflemma.com. And now, despite withering political turmoil and Coronavirus chaos in Austria, Andrew has delivered his first full skiing issue: a photos and essay masterpiece of one of the planet’s most storied and important resort areas, St. Anton. You can read the entire piece here. In the meantime, here’s just a few images to inspire you to squeeze just a few more runs of this otherwise rugged season here in America.
AGAIN…LOOK AT THE POW!
