Privilege means: being able to go skiing on a weekday afternoon without having to turn on your head lamp on your way down the slope. And prime privilege is when you also have a good friend who has time to tag along. The Untersberg near Salzburg isn't just legendary, it's also (almost) always worth hitting the slopes there in winter. Because it is one of the first peaks on the northern rim of the Alps, it ends up being so windy on the way up that all the ice crystals buzzing around make for an exfoliating skin treatment at no extra charge. But because the 1,250+ m ascent is notoriously steep, it won't take you long to work up a sweat. When it comes to tackling a combination as challenging as this one, there's no trustier sidekick than Salomon's GORETEX Shake-Dry jacket.
