Practical information
These are not adventurous downhill rides or slalom between the trees, but routes where it is possible to learn to properly "tread" uphill, go down or just enjoy a nice trip. You should not go hiking alone. The ideal group is 3-4 people.

Planning and choosing a route should always match your level of experience and equipment. The decision whether to go on a specific route should therefore be preceded not only by finding out the current degree of avalanche danger, but also by the conditions on the route you have chosen. Information on the avalanche situation, the course of the weather and possibly also the conditions can be found on the website of the Mountain Service.
