Montagne du Droit: Erneut Schneefall und schlechter Sicht
Hiking classification: 2 stars (acceptable)  From Tramelan we followed the border of the wood, and when we hitted the major road, we followed that road until Bise de Cortebert. From there onwards we followed the broad ridge of Montagne du droit and made oure own snowshoe tracks. Unfortunately, later it started again...

Moron: Schneeschuhüberschreitung bei teilweise schlechtem Sicht
Hiking classification: 3 stars (nice) 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...

Schnabelspitz, Rickhubel
Hiking classification: 3 stars (nice) The weather was better than expected. In the morning the strong wind, together with sun shine was very pleasant. We ascended slowly towards the "Sewensee", through a rather open, nice landscape. From the Sewensee onwards the ascent was steeper towards the ridge...

Obwalden   T2 WT3  
15 Mar 08
Nünalpstock, Haldimattstock, Looegg, Bärenturm
Hiking classification: 3 stars(nice) The northern slopes of the Brienzer Rothorn had snow (almost) to Sörenberg, but the southern slopes had a general lack of snow. We walked until 1700 m without snow shoes. In these lower parts we saw a gemse. It was very mild weather with a lot of sun shine, so altogether not really winter...

Les Rodomonts
hiking classification: 3 stars (nice) In the morning the snow was better. Despite the high temperatures, the clear night caused that the snow had become quite hard, although not always hard enough not to sink in. After quite a desent, we started to climb to Col de la Forcla, and later the three peaks of Les Rodomonts. For the...

Hundsrügg, Birehubel, Schneitgrat
hiking classification: 3 stars (nice) Nice tour with very sunny but too warm weather. The ascent from Sparemoos first folows ski pisten until Schiltenegg. There we put our snow shoes and followed the not steep ridge up to Hundsrügg. The descent from the second summit (Birehubel) was up to 37 degrees steep and was partly snow...

Appenzell   T2  
10 Feb 08
hiking classification: 2 stars (acceptable) This hike was made without snow shoes. There was a closed snow cover from 1100 m onwards, but the snow cover was always relatively thin and/or hard, so that snow shoes were not needed. As I started in the beginning of the afternoon, it was necessary to hurry up a bit, especially because...

Chellenspitz, Alplispitz, Chrüzegg, Habrütispitz, Schindelberg, Schnebelhorn, Roten
Hiking classification: 2 stars (acceptable) This hike offered some surprises today. There was a strong Föhninfluence, and below altostratus clouds there was almost no sun shine and a stormy wind, especially on Chellenspitz and Alplispitz. The very few snow that was left was blowing in the air. From pt. 1193 onwards it...

Mont Raimeux
Hiking classification: 2 stars (acceptable) January and again very mild. Until the top of Mont Raimeux there were only some minor snow spots. I had a stop in Cab. le Bambos, were I enjoyed some soup and bread. The descent through "Le Gore Virat" was the most demanding, and also the nicest part of this walk. It is a...

Schwammegg, Köbelberg, Tönnerenegg: Schneeschuhtour auf drei "neue" ZH Oberland Gipfel
Hiking classification: 2 stars (acceptable) From the busstop Egligen to Schutt along the road (instead of waiting another 30 minutes for the next bus), and from Schutt onwards, first along the street, and from Hind. Altschwand onwards with snow shoes to Hind. Rotstein. Unfortunately there were quite some people on the ridge, and...
