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.
Romain, Noemie, Florian, and myself escaped the northern rains and enjoyed slab climbing in the beautiful Ticino autumn weather. Noemie and Romain went for a multi-pitch climb outside of Ponte Brolla (Speroni, Quarzi route) while Florian and myself opted for single pitch climbs on the eastern and central sector.
During the “Albigna Alpine Tour and Climbing Weekend”, we explored the beautiful Albigna area in Bergell. The scenery is stunning: a remote area with wild mountains and sharp ridges.
Thank you Hansi for taking care of the last order!
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.
The AACZ tradition was perpetuated this December with the holding of the tradional Fondei Weihnachstkneipp!
