Winter is in full swing and Walter is once again going to run a Saturday Ski Tour for us.
The idea will be to meet at Sihlpost in Zurich and car pool to the destination of the day. The location for the tour will be made available to participants on the Friday evening before the tour by the mountain guide leading the tour. Tour or Freeride, while the idea is that it will be somewhat tour focused, if conditions on one of the tour days is perfect for freeriding this may be an alternative programme. The tour will take place regardless of weather conditions. The tour and location will be adapted to suit the prevailing conditions, but be run under the philosophy of no bad weather with the correct equipment.
The tour will be led by a local UAIGM qualified Mountain Guide.
The tours will not be too technically difficult, but will most likely (unless more freeride orientated) have in the region of 1000m of ascent under your own power. Ascending 1000m with a pace of about 350m per hour is a prerequisite for participating in this tour. Max No of Participants:
