Hi all,

Some of you were already asking about why this meetup has not organized anything this month and if we are going to do things for the winter. Except for some good days, it was mostly cold and cloudy, hence I thought it was a good time to get slowly preparing on ideas for the winter.

Well...as you can see outside the window right now, winter has decided to stay for a while. Here are some ideas of what to do for this white season:

- alpine skiing (Obvious decision)
- tourenskis
- snowshoeing
- sledding (as I found out, Switzerland has some slopes for sledding that are in fact over 10km long)
- indoor climbing (a good pass time to do when there is a snow storm outside)

I have set up a questionnaire to know if there are demand on this activities and how much. It would be great if you could spend some little time to click on the options on:

If you have more ideas, I would be really glad if you share them with us.

Specially this coming weeks, I will be pretty busy attending end-of-year parties and traveling for some vacation to my home country. However, I will like to squeeze in some outdoor days if the weather permits. I encourage everyone in interested to organize an event to do so. Just email me and I will grant him access to the website's tools. This meetup website should be for everyone to use and an encouragement so that no one will get stuck in their apartment these months.

For tomorrow Sunday 23rd of November, and since it will keep snowing, I would like to go to the climbing gym in Milandia. Who wants to join me? It requires at least little previous climbing experience to know how to assure correctly. I will be at the HB under the big angel at 1pm, and then take the train to Schwerzenbach to be around 1:30 in the gym. If you need to call me, my number is[masked] 4480.

Best wishes to all,

Sven
