Feuerkogel weekend hike - May 19

Feuerkogel weekend hike - May 19

3 minute read

We always admire mountains around Salzburg when driving by. Our friends planned a hike in this area. It is a bit far away from Munich but fine if we go for 2-3 full days. The proposal for the hike was to start from Ebensee and get to Attersee (cross the mountain range around Feuerkogel). Looking at the map, thinking about the valleys - many lakes, ferratas, camps. Looks like a nice place for summer holiday. [ Read More... ]

Hochglückscharte skitour - May 19

Hochglückscharte skitour - May 19

As result of the temperatures drop earlier this week in Munich, we have snow in Prealps again. Couple of webcams I checked showed new snow - places that were green were white again. I wanted to do bike & ski in Karwendel in April, however we have not managed to do it (mainly before 1st of May as the toll road Hinterriss-Eng opens). I expected plenty people today going to Hochglückscharte but my expectations were exceeded by the reality. [ Read More... ]

I was looking for spring skitour close to Munich. I have seen some people already doing bike & ski in Karwendel, however I could not find anyone to join me on Saturday thus Schnider was the best option - my plan was to get to the end of the valley and explore it. There are two options to get there (not counting from Austria) - Tegernsee or Spitzingsee. As I often go to Spitzingsee, I chose Tegernsee path (I regretted it later, see below why). [ Read More... ]
