We've not had any snow worth mentioning this year, so we jumped at the opportunity of a day-trip to Oberwiesenthal, a ski resort on the Czech border. A couple of friends who were into cross-country skiing (der Langlauf in German) had hired a car and asked us if we wanted to go along. The journey between Berlin and Oberwiesenthal is over 300km and took about four hours, but it was worth it to go walking through snow-covered forests high on hill-top ridges.

Here are some photos from the day (click for bigger).
