Walchsee hasn't survived the sun, wind and mild weather so we'll go to Reit im Winkl instead. We can meet 10 minutes later (9.40) by Starbucks on platform 11.

Got as far as the first lake after the Verbindungsloipe from Seegatterl. Also managed to squeeze in a loop around town at the end.

The rain forecast for today (Sunday) didn't arrive in the end.  It snowed all day instead but you wouldn't have wanted to ski in it.  Definitely the better choice to go on Saturday this week.

Hi Toytown skiers!

 

I'm hoping to do one or more long ski trips in March, at somewhere in the Alps in Austria or Germany that still has snow. However, I'm a poor master's student, so I'm looking for the cheapest option possible that still has enough kilometers of skiing to make the trip worthwhile. Any suggestions of places that are likely to have snow then and/or cheap accommodation? I will look into couch-surfing too.

There are not many trails open at lower altitudes so the tour this Sunday is higher up -- 1130m above sea level in Leutasch, Austria where most trails are still open.

 

We take the train to Mittenwald (ski hire available in Mittenwald), then bus to Leutasch Weidach from where we start skiing.

 

After a short section along the valley we turn off and ski trails black/difficult C9 and red/intermediate B8 in Plaik, then back to Weidach village for lunch (12km distance, although 2km can be eliminated by short-cuts, if desired).

After lunch we will ski east down the blue/easy A7 and A9 trails as far as Reindlau or Lochlehn to meet up with the bus back to Mittenwald (another 6km).

 

Arrival time back in Munich is 7:30pm.

 

Previous cross-country skiing experience is required.

 

In addition to the transport (train and Austrian bus) costs of €17 per person, there is also a hefty €9 trail fee in Leutasch.

This Sunday we are skiing in Ehrwald and Lermoos.

 

We first take the train to Ehrwald sharing DB group tickets (about €8 each).  From Ehrwald railway station it is either a 15 minute walk or 15 minutes of skiing to the town centre where the ski hire shop is located.  When everyone is equipped with skis, we start skiing towards Biberwier.


We will take a detour around Sonnenspitzloipe and Weissenseeloipe trails (or Lärchenwaldloipe if these trails are not groomed), then continue on towards Lermoos.

 

After lunch in Lermoos, we ski back to where we started in Ehrwald.

 

Total skiing distance is approximately 18km.  Trails are a mixture of red/intermediate and blue/easy.

 

We will arrive back in Munich at 7:30pm.


Trail conditions in Ehrwald and webcam.


Weather forecast for Sunday in Ehrwald looks good.

 

Sign up below to join, or, alternatively, sign up on the MunichXC meetup.com page.

 

You must have previous cross-country skiing experience, or be a competent downhill skier.
