Meadow lasagne instead of food from the microwave, chamois dumplings instead of fast food and wildflower soup instead of everyday mishmash. These taverns use products from their own gardens, fields and stables for cooking.

The T-bar is an endangered species in Tirol. This winter, a new tri-cable gondola whisks skiers up to the top at Stubai Glacier Ski Resort, new border-erasing gondola lines create Austria’s largest ski resort in St. Anton and Giggijochbahn Gondola in Sölden boasts a wheelchair accessible loading area.

Pemba Sherpa works at Aldranser Alm over the summer and as a trekking guide in the Himalayas in fall and spring. I met Pemba to find out what he learns here in Tirol — Western-style lodge management, for example. What I found out, indeed, is that we can learn a lot from him, too.
