Snowshoe Hike in Nidwalden

  • January 18, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • Zürich HB

Stockhütte - Brisenhaus - Klewenalp

The meeting time outside Stockhütte ready to go is 13:45.


~ update: I believe I got the times wrong with the moonrise. It won't be during the times we're out. ~

Thursday is the full moon but we should still have a nice view of it Saturday, weather permitting. The moon rises around 15:00.

We'll be using snowshoes some of the time. The expected hike time in good conditions is 3 hours. In snow it will take an hour or more longer. The last lift down is at 20:00. We'll be walking up 600+ meters in snow (don't take this lightly.)

    Gah! This sounds so great (hiking, moonlight, the awesome people from last summer...) but I seem to have developed some sort of deadly coughing illness. Sadly giving up my spot.

      Hi, I checked and they can be rented at ahtleticum. Also Viktor are you driving, as I think to also, but not sure if parking or how to get back to the car between the two points.

    • Viktor M.

      Ok, see where I can get them... Yesterday I injured my calf and couldn't really walk well... hope tomorrow it will be good... Lorna, let you know tomorrow morning... but I'm coming from Luzern, and you?

    Seems a cool idea - unfortunately I will be seeing the Lauberhorn ski race live so can-t make it.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
