It’s been snowing almost the entire week, making us very happy but the situation got critical in some parts of Prealps. Lot of huts are closed due to the snow and avalanche risks. The same for few ski resorts around Munich. [ Read More... ]

Road situation was more relaxed than yesterday in South Bavaria. Today’s skitour is in Blomberg, close to Bad Tolz. I have mountainbiked here in the last year but not skitour. As we would like to start doing evening skitours this winter season, Blomberg was a good candidate to try it during the day. By the way, Tuesdays are evening skitours here ! [ Read More... ]

It has been constantly snowing in Munich since yesterday. We were warned prior the weekend but who would think 20 cm of snow can cause today’s traffic. Our 50 minutes drive to Prealps region was 1 hour and 30 minutes at least (including avoiding highways with stationary traffic). [ Read More... ]

This is going to be a short entry of our first ski tour in Slovakia. We went to Poludnovy Grun in Ski resort Vratna-Paseky (Mala Fatra range), close to Zilina. This was an on piste ski tour. We started at the parking lot and basicallly followed the lifts all the way up. The first part was prepared by pisten bully. The second was not prepared as it was not open yet, however there was enough snow to comfortably ski down from the top of the lift. Unfortunately, we did not make it all the way to the peak because of strong wind and lack of snow on the exposed sites. [ Read More... ]
