“Fear… the right and necessary counterweights to that courage which urges men skyward, and protects them from self-destruction.” - Heinrich Harrer

I love me a nice cabin!

I have mentioned before that I love the Dolomites and so it was a great pleasure to return in Winter to Kronplatz in South Tyrol and go ski-touring. My brother and me spent three beautiful days in the Gsieser Valley, then packed up our gear and continued across the border to Austria and the beautiful Salzburger Lungau region where we spent another three days of ski-touring. As I’m right now wrapping up some other work projects and packing for a trip to Switzerland I leave you with some impressions from last week to wet your appetite for the coming trip report from these two trips!

Austria, Salzburger Lungau

Going up through interesting "snow"

The snow in Austria, down in the valley, was “interesting” for starters.


Wind-blown, hard snow pack made for easy skinning.

And we made it!

The next day: Bluebird weather and half a meter of powder.

Yay, that's where we were

Yeps, that’s where we just where - on top of the Großer Königstuhl.

More coming in March! Also keep an eye on the Gsieser Valley Album and Salzburger Lungau Album on Flickr or just follow along on Instagram.

Thanks to Kronplatz, Lungau and Maro and Partner for making this trip possible.
