Went today for an activation because of even worse wx forecast for tomorrow on a snow shoe hike to Großer Höllkogel. The highest summit on the Höllengebirge plateau between lake Traunsee and lake Attersee in Upper Austria.
Feuerkogel cable car base station:
Weather still okay…
Interesting was to see the strong contrast with no snow in the valley an ~1m on the plateau
Started with okay’ish weather but half an hour before reaching the summit wind picked up and made it a bit more challenging. My frozen beard is becoming a trademark I guess
Forecast was up to 65 km/h wind speed
With that conditions the handheld for 2m FM was the only vial option. Sorry for no chance for chaser on other bands.
But see for yourself:
As you see I was not alone. Just before the summit 2 other touring skiers went down. On the way back I met two others.
The cable car ride down was fun with a place in the front row. You can see it in the video at 8xtimes the speed.
