Any mountain related tour


June 28-30, 2019
A large group consisting of 20 AACZ members enjoyed the perfect conditions at the Krönten region for 3 days of multi-pitch climbing and  high-alpine tours.   
One of the highlights were the long climbing routes at Gwächten and Vorder-Päuggenstöckli and the high-alpine tour at the Krönten via the east ridge.  
The Obersee was perfectly suitable to cool the glowing feet after long climbing routes.

Adventures with a French touch - Touring Weekend in Val d'Arolla

Seven Hüttli decided to confront the changing weather of the ending summer and do a Hochtour
weekend close to Arolla, sleeping, some in tents and the bravest one(s), outside. Their goal was
to reach the Mt. Blanc de Cheillon (3870m).
Three of them, Karen B., Philip O. and Josquin P., decided to leave on Friday, walking into the
night with heavy packs up to a very comfortable looking meadow overlooking a little river at
around 2500m of altitude. In this pastoral setting, the trio dined on cheap chinese soups before

Ski-Touring weekend San Bernadino – March 4th-6th 2016

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.

Fondei Weihnachstkneipp 2015

As every year, early December marks the occasion for the AACZ Weihnachstkneipp at Fondei hut. Unfortunately, snow was rather scarce and only very few of us verntured to take skis. The rest enjoyed the beautiful weather hiking. As always, the Weihnachtskneipp was a wonderful social event and we enjoyed delicious food and drinks, watching shootingstars and being out in the mountains together.
