Last weekend I had the surprising chance to enjoy a wonderful backcountry ski tour in the mountains of St. Gallen withand my girlfriend Nadine. Surprising ’cause I had booked a flight already, but I had to cancel it last minute, which gave me this wonderful opportunity.
The mountains of St. Gallen are not that high, not that alpine. But at the heart of winter, they can appear almost like some of the highest summits. Luckily, we did not start too early, so we had some wonderful evening light on our way back down. After the first summit of Mt. Chapf, we decided on the fly to go to another one, Mt. Isisizer Rosswies. From there, you can look directly through a triangle-shaped saddle and see these very frosty, icy peaks of Alvier and Chli Alvier. We had a quite harsh wind on the summit and some estimated -15°C / 5°F.
I brought back so many photos that are worth to be posted, so I will post 5 images this week, one by one. Check back tomorrow, if you like!
