I have spent the last week in Austria with my friend and climbing partner Dave. We intended to come to the Alps to climb but the snow that has hit the UK has also been falling across the Alps and so our intended routes were buried! A last minute change of plan saw us head to Austria and we have spent the week ski touring in the Silvretta. Having never been before we were massively impressed with the super friendly huts, wonderful snow and beautiful mountains. We ticked off a couple of great summits and had some champagne powder days which were incredible. Now to make plans for the second week!
