When the first winter snowfalls arrive and the Grossglockner High Alpine Road closes, the small village of Heiligenblut turns into a winter wonderland.
North Tyrol’s highest mountain is only 28 m lower than Grossglockner. I remember seeing the mountain as the fog lifted and knowing immediately that I wanted to climb it.
Peter Jeromel and the Slovenian guides association organized a glacier travel and crevasse rescue seminar, which was supposed to be carried out beneath Grossglockner, but the location was changed to Dachstein due to bad weather.
The powder fields around Grossglockner, Bavarian and Vorarlberg resorts.
I was with friends Heiligenblut slops at Monday, 6-1-2014. We had 30-40 cm of fresh powder.
We made trails all day. We and other skiers celebrated fantastic winter day at the evening. We had bad visibility next day that we had to leave some powder for next visit.
