cross training: snow shoeing

There’s just time for one last taste of winter as spring is now definately in the air. The birds are singing, it’s 18 degrees and the snow is rapidly going.  Yay.

This last wintery post features photos from a snow shoe session 2 weeks ago. After a lovely dump of fresh powder overnight we were able to tread the virgin snow in the Gaistal.

My first impressions of snow shoeing were very favourable: A lots of slog and very little technique gets you a long way, making it a perfect cross-training activity for distance runners.

After all the hard work,  it had to be a schnitzel for lunch at the Hämmermoos Alm.  Now I’m in the wonderful win-win situation of being torn between excitement over the rapidly approaching summer, and wanting to doing this again before the snow completely goes.
