Austrian Ski Chalet, Nina

The Ski House of the Day is an Austrian chalet named...Nina.

This house is in the picturesque Austrian alps.  I love the traditional Tyrolean / Austrian appearance of the chalet Nina, with its terraces, woodwork and yes, those beautiful flower boxes brimming with flowers.  Even when the spring flowers are in bloom, you can still ski here, as the nearby Hintertux Glacier has year-round skiing!  It's part of Ski Zillertal 3000 which includes four additional ski areas linked together;  and the ski bus to get there stops right in front of this house.  Among the highlights of this group of ski areas is its "150 Tux", one of the largest aerial tramways in Austria (check out the view from the ride to the top)  -- this could be the view from heaven.

The house includes a living room and kitchen,

plus terraces with sweeping mountain views, three spacious bedrooms and a ski-storage room with boot warmer....and I really like its charming front door with arched top, gorgeous carved woodwork, and surrounded by lush colorful flowers:

I'm drawn to this cute house because of its charm, proximity to spectacular skiing, and last but not least because it shares a name with someone who was special to me.  Nina, like the spring flowers...beautiful, indeed.
