A weekend in Lech

I took the train into Austria on Friday afternoon to meet Leonie in Lech.

In Saturday we headed out for a ski tour despite the rubbish weather. We did the same tour as we had done last March with Wili, however this time we didn’t make it to the top of woerstlerhorn.

There was deep powder and nobody had been up before us so we had to make tracks in the snow. It was also very little visibility and at times we were in a complete whiteout.

Once reaching the saddle we decided to turn around as we couldn’t see a thing. As we were removing the skins from our skis magically it rapidly cleared and we descended in delicious sunshine.

It was so good that near the bottom we decided to put our skins back on and we headed back up a little until it threatened to cloud in again. We descended again and headed back down to Lech.

On Sunday I took the ortsbus to zug which was free, which I liked. Then I headed out and up to Zuger Horn. It was quite a nice ascent to begin with until I decided I needed to make my own track and then I flailed around on some steepish slopes trying to clamber over snowy bushes.

After freeing myself I continued up somebody’s decent track until I found myself on the summit. I also noticed another ascent track arriving from the other direction. Oops.

After visiting another on the way peak quickly I descended back into the valley and skated down the cross country skiing trail back to lech.
