Ski Mountaineering and Speed Riding Großer Priel (2515m)

December 31st, 2010

Hi extreme winter lovers!
Yesterday, Patrick and me we drove to the Almtalerhaus in Grünau (Almtal)
We hiked up with our skis on the backpack from the ground of the schermberg north wall to the welser hut over the normal route. the sun was shining but not at our place because of the northern side.
when we reached the ridge near the brotfallscharte we got sun too. so we had warm temperature but the wind was strong. brrr. at 1:15pm we reached the summit of großer priel (2515m). we had there a nice lunch on the wind protected southern side. what a great view after 5hours and 15 minutes of hard hiking. but every step was worth it 😉
at the großer priel summit we had too less snow for starting our speed glider so we hiked the ridge back and found a great starting place over a cliff.
what an amazing starting place.
the only problem we had was the fog which has suddenly covered the whole valley. we had to wait nearly two hours but that was not a problem because we had sun and an amazing view.
at 4pm we started our speedglider the swing spitfire 11m² with our skis. the start was tricky because we had to jump upon a cliff. when we flew the last sun rays shined to the western wall of the grosser priel. we needed only 3minutes and 30 seconds for flying down to the ground near the schermberg. we were so happy to managed this great winter tour.
thanks a lot for this adventure.
i wish you all the best wishes and a happy new year. 😉

Speed Riding Grosser Priel / Kühplan

December 31st, 2010

Hi extreme mountain addicted People.
On Wednesday Martin and me we drove to Hinterstoder for doing a ski mountaineering tour to the grosser priel. we hiked up in more or less good snow. some clouds covered the grosser priel upon the schneeloch. we stopped at the beginning of the brotfallscharte gully. the wind was from the false direction and it was too much. so we drove downwards to the kühplan and there was a good starting place for our speed rider.
We flew downwards over the prielschutzhaus to the valley station. there was a nice small landing place on the streambed 😉
it was a great winter tour without summit.
i wish you a happy new year!
Take care and have much fun!
