Snowshoeing in the Alps - Sunset watched from the Schwarzwasserhut

Snowshoeing in the Austrian Alps

To prepare myself for the snow I was expecting to encounter in the Sierra Nevada during my hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, I booked a snowshoeing tour in the Austrian Alps. The tour took place in the famous Kleinwalsertal and involved climbing the Steinmandl at 1985m, eating some of the best mountain hut food and nearly getting lost in a white-out.
