Your descent will also involve open terrain, in some cases with gradients as steep as 35°.

WHERE?
A PINZGAU SKI-TOURING HIGHLIGHT. The mountain guide will plan the tour based on prevailing conditions and the abilities of participants. You will be informed about the precise destination of your tour along with the meeting point ahead of time, so you can make appropriate plans and get yourself in the right frame of mind.

WHEN?
The tour takes places on Saturday, 02.02.2020. Alternate date: 09.02.2020
