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... ]

As we were approaching the lake, head lamps all around us, here comes the crowd! Speck Alm is opened on Wednesday until 21:30, serving hot food only until 21:00. [ Read More... ]

Parkplatz Mariandlalm was empty at 8 am today, only one car there. The beginning of the tour towards Mariandlalm is possible to skin up however snow was gone on the first 2 kilometers. Temperatures are not dropping these days, expecting to walk there in the few days. We found our way up on the snow side barrier or on small icy patches. We knew from the start we will carry our skis on the way back here. It was quite warm day, 3 degrees in the morning. The snow in the beginning was slushy around Unter Trockenbach Alm. [ Read More... ]
