    Russell Rainey does Via Ferrata

    I've been making videos for a ski area in Austria, Silvretta Montafon, for a little bit. This isn't ski related but features my dad, Russell Rainey, who some might like to see, is still getting active. He's not skiing too much these days, but I'm trying to change that.

    Yeah, it's not super hardcore, but a fun way to go up a mountain.

    The best option are the vacation apartments. This is what I have used to find places for others: https://hotels.montafon.at/en/book.

    It includes hotels and apartments. It's a little wonky, but let's you see the price ranges well. There are also campgrounds with campers, but I'm not sure where that falls into the spectrum, probably more economy though.

    Thanks, Montafon has been on the radar for a while. The tour from Klosters over looks good.

    There's so much good shit in here. 5 seasons skiing Arlberg, one in Montafon. I'll take Montafon, a little less snow, but the terrain is so fun, very playful, jumpy, cliffy. Arlberg is a more peppery, in general.
