January - Happy New Year from everyone here at Up and Downhill holidays. We reckon there are a fair number of adreline junkie mountain bikers that enjoy the white stuff as well. Pop over to our winter holiday site and check out our self-catering and b&b holidays, starting at only 26.50 per person per night.

February - We've been running our group holidays promotion for nearly a year now and it's been proving very popular. Another good reason to bring your riding friends on holiday with you.

March - Check out the holiday reviews that our guests have been giving us around the web of their holidays with us here in Austria. Our aim is to create a great stress free holiday for our guests. Looks like we are on the right track.

April - We've been having a really warm April over here in the Alps. The touring skis weren't even used once, let's hope our legs are in good shape for the mountain biking.

May - Guests arrive and enjoy some early alpine mountain biking. The trails are in great condition and things are looking good for the mountain biking season.

June - New trails open this year. A gnarly technical downhill trail in Hopfgarten and a flowing trail over in Kirchberg.

July - Out on the trails, eating farm made Austrian food and generally enjoying the outside life in the mountains.

August - We have an international gathering of guests this year. Obviously English and Scotland but add in Sweden, France, Canadian and Australian mountain bikers. Plenty of interesting banter on the slopes.

September - Busy times, loads of guests, a bumper year for us. Might have to look at getting another guide for next year.

October - Our last guests of the season were able to enjoy the trails (and lifts) with autumnal, rooty trails to tackle. There as a minor heat spell so the riding was perfect and at a 10% discount! Maybe a nice change from Morzine next year?

November - That's the mountain biking done for the season. Austria getting colder and snow has already arrived on the mountains. Bookings still available, but filling up quickly. 27 per person per night!

December - The snow has arrived and it doesn't appear to be stopping. This is the first year that we've been able to jump off the roof into the snow. Obviously for no other reason than we could!
