Wintersport in Mayrhofen 2006

Every year, the VIPS group of Philips Research makes a wintersport trip. This year, Mayrhofen in Austria was chosen as destination. We found 16 volunteers to do some serious skiing and snowboarding. The group left Eindhoven at March 11th in two busses. We were lucky to find some very comfortable (and very new) appartments. After a week of dangerous snow adventures and hefty apres-ski we returned to the Netherlands at 18 March.
