The winter surprise at the end of March took us to the Berner Jura. Already in Perrefitte there was nearly 10 cm snow and soon we could put our snow shoes. On the top of the Moron the snow depth was around 40 cm. While in the lowest parts the snow was heavy and quite wet, often also with an intermediate crust, a bit higher (above 1000 m) it was mostly powder snow. Unfortunately, at the top there was snowfall and no chance to enjoy the views from here. As snowfall increased intensity with bad visibility we continued fast, without breaks along the ridge and later downwards.

Route: Perrefitte- Cornecul- Pres Lesses- Moron- Bergerie de Loveresse- Montagne de Saules- Saules- Reconvillier.

Wetter: Erst Sonne und wenige Wolken, später mässiger Schnee und schlechte Sicht. Kräftiger wind. Oben kalt (-4 Grad).

Mit Brigitte, Carlos, Pia, Stephen und Vreni.
