Achenkirch [Christrum]

That was a first day when I could use new currency EUR, the second of January 2001.
The first thing to pay for was the ski pass!
Achenkirch is one of the nearest Austrian Ski area from Munich.

From Autobahn 8 Holzkirchen passing by lake Tegernsee, it was about 100km to Christrum ski area at Achenkirch, shortly before lake Achensee.

Tageskarte (One day ski pass) costed 26 EUR, the first thing paid for in EUR!.

At that time restaurant had to accept Austrian Schilling, EUR and just DM as normal border ski area. It was really confusing.

Such a small ski area with only three lifts and some T-bars is good for practicing.

From the top of the last lift, surrounding mountains in the north direction looked very nice.
Especially Juifen is a mountain for tour skiing or mountain bike.

Here you see mountains named "Unnutz"="not applicable?"on the back ground.
