I can’t remember when we ever had so much snow in the Alps. And in combination with the great weather I couldn’t help but doing a snowshoes tour.
I decided to climb Mount Stuhljöchl (2157 m) above Lake Achensee in Austria.
But when I woke up in the morning I hesitated. I had a bad feeling about that tour. 1200 hightmeters are massive, especially with deep snow. But I gave myself a jolt and started.
At the parking lot I saw this very useful device: It can check if your buried persons detector works accurately. Mine was alright.
The track was great. First I had to traverse a quiet forrest with magnificent views to the other side of the valley.
Then I reached this cabin. In summer farmers live here and their cattle graze on the alpine meadows.
But now the buildings almost vanish in the sheer masses of snow.
This was one of the pre-summits.
But until the real summit there was still some way to go. And how exhausting it was! I had to find my own path. The snow was about 4 meters high with half a meter of finest powder up above.
I struggled. Several times I thought about turning back. But during the breaks, necessary to catch some breath, I looked around me and the panorama motivated me to continue.
The view from the summit. I sat there in the arctic-like environment and enjoyed the sun.
A short video as a bonus. (Who can recognize the helicopter type just from its sound?)
