Technisch einfach

Diese Touren sind technisch einfach. Das heisst: Das Gelände auf diesen Schneeschuhtouren ist einfach und mässig steil. Bei normalen Verhältnissen (Lawinengefahr und Schneemenge) begehen wir auf diesen Touren keine langen Traversen und exponierte Passagen. Kondition für Aufstieg bis 4 Stunden und Tagestouren bis 7 Stunden ist jedoch Voraussetzung.
