After Valais and Graubünden in the last two years, this year, it was Ticino’s turn for the big annual AACZ skitouring trip. Given the fact that the winter had been quite poor in terms of snow all over Switzerland except of the Southern part, we were really lucky to have chosen the Bedretto valley in late November. In total, an amazing group of 28 Huttli joined the trip and we were hosted in the ‘Ristorante All’Acqua’ by the new leaseholder from Sicily.
Während unten in der Stadt die Weihnachtseinkäufe in Geschenktüten verschnürt wurden, packten wir unsere Rucksäcke für die Skitour. Während vor den Fondue-Hütten Zürichs Felle auf die Bänke gelegt wurden, zogen wir unsere auf die Ski.
As every year, there was a big skitouring weekend in 2019, which took place on the 9th to 10th of March. Talking to Franz back in November, he proposed the rural valley of Avers in Graubünden. Making use of his old connections to the Pension Edelweiss, we happened to stay at the very end of the valley, in Juf.
As every year, there was a big skitouring weekend in 2018, which took place on the 24th to 25th of March. Organization and report by Christoph.
On March 4th, AACZ members of all age groups and skill levels took off versus the south for a ski touring weekend in the valleys around the San Bernadino pass. Despite highly uncertain weather conditions, around 20 brave members assembled in San Bernadino’s youth hostel and hotel. The first day was characterized by high avalanche danger due to snow falls of about 80cm within 24 hours. The day therefore started with finding one’s car (usually hidden in a huge block of snow) and a subsequent shoveling workout.
We had an exciting weekend on Finsteraarhornhütte in April! Club members, candidates and guests climbed Fiescherhörner, Jungfrau, Finsteraarhorn, Gross Wannenhorn and Galmihorn.
