Schwarzkogel Snowshoe Tour

It's been a while since my last post. I've done a lot of mountaineering and will try to post some more pictures soon, but today was a nice one and since I've just uploaded a couple of pictures, I want to share them. I'm still a terrible skier and so I have to stick to snow shoes in order to go up the mountains in winter. Well... I mean I really have this idea of starting glacier tours next summer and I want to get familiar with snow and ice this way, trying to handle ice ax, crampons etc. Today I was walking up the very easy Schwarzkogel in fantastic winter weather. Nothing spectacular, but some nice fews and ice cold wind in the ridge. The mountains you see here are just about a half hours drive from home, so I guess I will be there more often this winter.
