Saalbach mtb - August 19

Saalbach mtb - August 19

1 minute read

We have not been much biking this year, not to mention almost barely visited Alps on wheels. It was about the time to meet few friends and hit some trails. We were 8 of us for 3 days in Saalbach, Austria. 400 km of trails was waiting for us. Many of accommodations provide “Joker card” - most importantly, the lifts. Our plan was to bike as much as we can. Truth be told, as much as your hands can handle. [ Read More... ]

Großer Rettenstein Kitzbühel - Aug 19

We biked twice in Kitzbühel the last year and we had great time there on bike trails. Including, the longest singletrack in Tirol - Fleckalm trail. As we did not feel for cycling on Saturday, we decided to go for a hike to Großer Rettenstein. I remember a great picture taken by Danka while we were on bikes the last year, Großer Rettenstein was in the background. [ Read More... ]

We returned on our bikes to a place I hiked few weeks back (Sonnenspitz blog post). We discovered few singletracks in the area but one I did not back then was Sachenbach trail. As it is rated S3, I was skeptical about going down the trail (some pics show rocky sections I am not yet fond of - just more practice :-) ). You can go around via gravel road and later hiking path (S0-S1). Of course that was not our case. [ Read More... ]

Schöttelkarspitze & Soiernsee round hike - Jun 19

I discovered Soiernsee this week while browsing Instagram and I immediately checked if we can sleep over in the hut (Soiernhaus). There were 5 places left on Friday (nothing for Saturday) Let’s do it. I was surprised to see in hut conditions: arrival prior 17, the reservation will be freed after 19. This was not ideal for our plan to hike via few peaks on Friday ater work. I contacted the hut via various sources (email, phone, sms), no reponse so we prepared ourselves for everything.
