    Sorry, but the weather is looking a bit too wet for me to do a hike. I hope you non-wimps going up there anyway will have a great time despite the weather!!

    "Wasserauen": we could have known from the name...

    June 29, 2014

  • Lukas

    Ok, let's skip the swim;-) Will the cablecar be purely foggy and soggy or enjoyable? In the latter case, why don't we go, enjoy the ride, play our own alphorns and return early?

    Gian-Andrea, i wish i could go, but the weather forecast really scares me. If you go, good luck and have fun!

    Thank you very much for organizing, Gian-Andrea. Too bad that the weather forecast doesn't look good. Oh well, I'll be working on my thesis and cleaning the apartment tomorrow, then... See you another time!

    Hi guys, I am thinking about showing up tomorrow.
    We can decide what to do, maybe just short trip?
    So I hope there will be someone:))))))

    See you!

    Hello my Friends
    I also have bought the train ticket in advance.
    I feel very sad because the weather is really bad tomorrow. What about to cancel this meetup and celebrate our one year anniversary an other day?
    At the end we lose 40 CHF and not more, but in my opinion the weather don't allow us to hike.
    Hugs and Kisses

    Hi, I would like just to be sure...

    First we take train from Zürich HB 8:09 (Gleis 11 - to Gossau) ICN
    9:22 (G.11 - to Wasserauen) S23
    10:12 cable car to Ebenalp - 10:36

    Or I made something wrong?

    Anyway see you tomorrow:)
    I already bought the ticket, so now I have nothing to lose:D

    P.s. Are you guys taking some extra food?
    There will be place for grill - or you're counting on restaurant and your own snacks?

    Gian-Andrea, could you provide some "numerical" data about the hike? I mean the altitudes, maybe some altitude profile, etc? The best would be some web service with hiking maps, unfortunatelly I don't know such services for Alps, maybe someone else does?
    Something like this would be perfect:

    Hi Gian-Andrea, do I understand correctly that we will be taking the cable car to Ebenalp and then walking down. If so I strongly suggest anyone who has hiking poles bring them along as it's a long downhill. Same for boots as it can be wet in places and they are better for grip.

    June 22, 2014

  • Leandro

    Hello Gian-Andrea

    I will buy my ticket in advance.
