Snowshoe, 1 day
Organized by :
Fionn Cleary
Description :

Will organise a snowshoe hike, on the 25th. Given that there is lots of new snow this week, plus the long-term forecast on Sunday is for cold weather, we don't need to go that high to do a snowshoe hike. Plan is to go to Hainfeld and climb Kirchberg, there are two huts along the route, and snow conditions should be nice. I currently have one place left in my car from Maria Enzersdorf (super easy to reach from Wien Meidling Bhf), and then we have a relatively short drive of 50-60km.

Technical requirements :
T2, Rough areas, broken rocks and boulder fields are not a problem for me. I am sure-footed and free of dizziness
Physical requirements :
K2, 4-7 hours / day; up and down
Duration in hours and

4-5hrs, 400m
