Snowshoe hike Jochart on 25 January 2020

organized by Roger Starkie  contact organizer

Title :
Snowshoe hike Jochart
Date :
Sat 25.01.2020
Type of event :
Snowshoe, 1 day
Organized by :
Roger Starkie
Description :

The Jochart is a lesser known mountain (altitude 1266m) in the Gutensteiner Alps offering a perfect circuit for a snowshoe tour (assuming sufficient snow!).

We will do this tour (or something similar).

It is of medium difficulty, so is suitable for any reasonably fit hiker, even those who have not yet tried snowshoeing. Difficulty level SSW1.

After the tour we can go for some food or at least a drink in the restaurant in Rohr am Gebirge.

If the weather forecast is bad for this day, the tour might be postponed to Sunday 2nd Feb. If the weather is good for this day, but insufficient snow for a snowshoe tour in the Jochart, then we will either do the tour as a normal hike, or change the location to somewhere we can do a snowshoe hike (at the discretion of the trip organiser!)
