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).

Due to weather and no one to join me for skitour today, I chose Garmisch skitour on ski piste, destination Osterfelderkopf. Saturday morning was warm and sunny (compare to rainy yesterday in Munich). When we were in Garmisch 3 weeks ago, there was good amount of snow in the valley. All gone now. We might bike soon, but wait, ski season not over yet. [ Read More... ]
