This autumn has been unseasonably cold and snowy, especially in the mountains. The highest elevations (above 2,000 meters) had received a very early covering of snow.
I decided to visit Caucasus even though one of my clients decided not to join us. “Never stop exploring" was the overriding thought running through my head.
During Easter it seemed that large quantities of snow will last until May or June, but the warm winds again brought a major change. To make the most of the winter which seemed to be departing abruptly, we decided to go ski touring above the Logarska Valley this last Sunday.
A van full of ski gear, climbing gear, and some hope: 650 km later I was on the north side of the Alps.
The Allgau Alps are not one of the highest groups of the Alps, but they are definitely one of the most popular.
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.
