Last weekend of July we travelled down to Austria / Vent near Sölden to climb up to the Wildspitze, which is the highest mountain of Tirol.
Another lovely day in the Alps with some new powder and incredible weather conditions (Kaiserwetter). As it was before Christmas, the tracks were not very busy but nearly all tracks were already open.
Some days ago we started with another trip into the Alps as this was the night with the most falling stars in the whole year. So we basically arrived at 4 o’clock in the morning and stayed there for some time outside to take some pictures.
Some weeks ago we went back to the Alpes for a very short trip, only 2 days. As it was raining during our first day, we hoped to have better weather conditions the day after.
Second day of our trip through the Alps started really early without any breakfast at 4 am. It was dark, cold and frightening quiet when we started to go further up 500 m from the Enzianhütte to the Rappensee.
As already mentioned, here you go with the ascent to the Rappensee. Pictures of the sunrise will follow soon. Enjoy. Feedback much appreciated!
Back in Germany, we decided on short notice for a hiking trip in the Alpes – so back in Riezlern to walk up to the Enzian Hütte, 2/3 on the way to the Rappensee, which we will reach by sunrise at 5:00 in the morning.
Just a few days in lovely Austria in Winter 2014/2015
Some snowboard action in Montafon. Weather was good, tracks not very crowded and a lot of powder.
Snow Safari through some skiing areas in Zillertal. We have been quite a big group and have been there for 2 weeks in total. Although I prefer other areas to ski in the Alpes, the Zillertal area is really famous and alway a fun.
