Snowshoeing for Beginners
I should be getting a pair of Snowshoes next week (late Xmas present!) but have never used any in my life.
Can anyone give me some advice about what to do, what to look (out) for, where to go, etc. for a complete beginner, please?

Hiking: The prediction of the spent time
This is a topic with which I measured myself several times and in many ways because, as you can imagine, it is very important to leave on a trip provided with the appropriate technical equipment: backpack, boots, shoes, clothing, food, compass, maps, etc.. but also with an idea as precise as possible, about the time it takes.

Stubaier hohenweg (high mountain trail)
I have published a short report ( http://www.hikr.org/tour/post29269.html ) about my last year's hike along the Stubaier high mountain trail in Austria. Next year, I plan to finish the route (1 week). Should anyone be interested in going along with me and a couple of other people, please let me know.

Ferrata del Diavolo - 2er Akt
Described many times on hikr.org, I am on this route for the second time: in 2006 with my older son when he was 11 years old and now with my younger son (12y), who has been asking to climb this for some time.
