It is quite fascinating to see how hungry skiers could be when they have been skiing all morning. I probably looked the same myself when I was having my own lunch. This photo is taken in one of the restaurants at Idalp at height of 2 320 meters in the Silvretta Area, the Ischgl-Samnaun ski area on the Austrian-Swiss border. The lift system of the Silvretta Arena has a total of transport capacity of 78,900 people per hour. The system has 3 gondolas, 2 aerial ropeways (80 + 180 passengers), 23 chair lifts, 11 surface lifts. The three gondolas all start in the village of Ischl.

Activity along the pists require a lot of activity in the restaurants as well! A concentration of colours in this snowy landscape.

An amusing scene from a different kind of restaurant. A lot of colours and the faces of people very intent on eating a lot, very fast, so they could go back to the slopes as soon as possible.

There is nothing like outdoor physical activity in snow and sun to stimulate hunger!
Besides it is nice to sit down to rest for a while hehehe...
Typical situation well recorded, a fine documentary of life along the piste!
