We will decide the tour location according to conditions at the time, to get the best of the snow. The meeting point will be a point accessible by public transportation from Munich (Approx 1.5hrs) and car. From there we will fit the equipment and then head out on our tour.

Our tours will take us along snowy trails through forest, open snow-covered meadows with opportunities to get off-trail and make our own tracks. We will stop along the route for snacks, picnic and hot drinks. If there is a catered hut along the route we will let you know in the joining instructions.
