Ski touring course in the Austrian Alps


17-26 Feb. 2017, I was in Kühtai, Austria. There I did a 1-week introductory course in ski touring and backcountry skiing through the Dutch website Led by the experienced Austrian guide Karl Dung, our group of seven Dutchies did three tours in the area and spent the other days in the Kühtai ski resort training backcountry skiing and avalanche skills. Great group, fair conditions and we witnessed an avalanche!
