You have reached mizzi.at and a lot has changed here.
This website was started in 2006 by me, Stephanie Jagl-Posch. The aim was to support female action sports athletes by providing them with a platform where their news, photos and videos got shared.
I ran a personal blog separately, where I wrote about my own experiences as an outdoor enthusiast and amateur athlete.
In 2017, I was not happy with mizzi.at and my personal blog in their current form anymore. I was also looking for a place to share stuff about my job in the field of web development.
After taking mizzi.at offline and going on a hiatus from 2017 to 2018, I finally came to the conclusion that I wanted to strive towards creating a collective home for support for female action sports athletes, for my personal blog as well as for insights into the life of a web developer.
So here we are – I hope you enjoy your stay on my website!

Last weekend, we finally made it to the mountains with Burli! We met up with our friends “Pacher’s on tour” (check them out on Instagram, Facebook and visit their website!) for some winter camping days. First, we visited the Gemeindealpe in Lower Austria (or, as us Lower Austrians call it, the “Gmoa Oim”) where we did some fun laps and enjoyed the view to the Ötscher, one of the most characteristic and highest mountains in Lower Austria.
The Ötscher is incredible!
After that, we continued our trip to the Planneralm, which is always a safe bet for a good amount of natural snow. We have visited this rather small resort a lot of times already, because we dig the fact that they only have natural snow on the slopes. Also, the feeling up there is very raw and rural – after all day skiing guests have left and the lights in the few houses up there are on, it feels like winter wonderland straight from some kitschy fairy tale. Besides of riding on the slopes, the resort also offers a freeride area and out of bounds lots of terrain for freeriding and touring is available.
We indulged in snowboarding in the resort, freeriding, a splitboard tour up the Karlspitze and also went ninepin bowling – my first time, so far, I have only played tenpin bowling. Ninepin bowling was much harder for some reason, haha. Then, the Pacher’s left in direction of Fetzy’s World for some ice bathing and running through fire (yes, the Pacher’s ARE a bit wild ;)), whereas Roman and I went for the softer version and visited the Grimming Therme for a decent after-ride-chill.

WordPress 5.0, also called “Bebo”, has been released recently. I think there never has been an update before that had to deal with so much criticism. Many people were alarmed, because the release date on December 6th felt a little rushed, with only a few days of notice beforehand. Also, the new editor, Gutenberg, still has a lot of Accessibility issues, although the WordPress Accessibility team and the Gutenberg developer team worked hard to eliminate as many problems as possible.
From my personal view as a web developer, I would advise against updating to WordPress 5.0 too quickly. I would suggest waiting at least until version 5.0.1 is out. Usually, after a release of a major update there will be bugfixes coming up in a short amount of time and the bigger problems will be eliminated shortly after the initial major release. You don’t have to worry that your WordPress installation will update automatically to 5.0, since the auto-updates only work for minor releases (unless you have altered the configuration yourself).
WordPress 5.0 is not a security update, and the previous version 4.9.8 should continue to receive further security updates if needed, so there’s no big reason to update right away. If you’re using Wordfence, you will get alerts that your WordPress version is out of date, but in this case, it’s just an information – you can read their posting on this topic here. Also, many themes that use their own layout builders for the content of pages and posts, still have compatibility issues with the newest version of WordPress.
There is a plugin called “Classic Editor“, which will enable using themes that don’t yet support Gutenberg. It is planned to be supported until 2021.
There is no need for you to panic, and you don’t have to rush things. I would advise you to try out WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg on a development install, where you can safely play around, test your site and get used to the new WordPress version.
I am sure that WordPress will continue to serve as an easy to use Content Management System and that 5.0 and upcoming versions will include great improvements.

you need a good foundation of first aid skills to transfer them into situations where you don’t have the full amenities of civilisation and i feel much more capable of giving first aid outdoors now! it only takes a few hours of practise every now and then, so i urge you to also sign up for a course and get educated!
After a loooooong summer with a great surftrip to the Basque country, I had the chance to attend my first snowboard camp by Sportunion Kaltenleutgeben for this season. We went to the Kitzsteinhorn to get our first runs in. Sadly, the mountain still lacked a lot of snow, so we stuck to riding the slopes and the funpark.
My ultimate goal is to become a “well-rounded” snowboarder, meaning that I want to be able to cruise the backcountry just as gracefully as the funpark or the slopes. I am sure, improving in the park and working on my carving and general riding technique will help me become a better freerider as well.
The registration for some of the contests that I’m planning to compete in has already started, so I’m currently trying to get on aaallllll those starting lists. By the way, check out my new ATHLETE BIO page :)
Other than that, I’m looking forward to – hopefully – lots of fun days with friends – in the mountains, be it in the park, on the slopes or offpiste, where I hope for lots of touring and freeriding adventures.
