Hi Roger,

Very nice video, it is sure that there are less people than in summer!
I liked the slide … luckily there wasn’t a bigger slope and Nioky :guide_dog: who was helping you :wink: :+1:

Thanks all QSO :crazy_face:

73, Éric

Nice video, Roger.
Thank you for the activation and QSO.
Watching your slide reminded me that I have to order some of these:
I ordered them a few months ago, but had to return them because I ordered XL by mistake and my feet are not that big. Now I’ll have to order the L size.

And you should have had them with you too, because that snow looked pretty hard.

Hello roger,
Thank you very much for the film and the beautiful pictures. I would have a QSO with you, but unfortunately I was not at home. I fondly remember activating Mount Ventoux myself.
All the best for xmas and the new year.

With Roger you should always expect an impressive number of QSOs …

Hi Guru,

For deep snow below ones are better :wink:

They demand some care when use.

Bravo Carl pour ton activité au sommet.
En hiver, le paysage est différent, et le challenge aussi.
Content pour le complete summit. 73 QRO - Roger

Paul,
Probably in january / february I will go to Mont Ventoux.
I will let you know for your complete summit.

It’s clear that these ones I’ve got are not serious crampons and I don’t pretend going to serious on-ice hicking with them, but I know they will be perfect to walk/hike on the type of hard snow and ice I usually find in the type of hikes of the activations I do.
And we don’t have so much snow and ice here as you do in your area. So I hope these ice spikes will be just perfect for me.
I only hope to be able to use them many times for many years.

P.D. by only driving about 1,5 hours from my QTH, it’s possible to find lots of snow/ice and serious winter climbing in the EA2 Pyrenees, with summits over 2000m and some even reaching higher than 3000m a.s.l. as you can see in this picture I took during my activation of EA2/NV-092 (only 12 Km South of Pamplona) last Monday:


But these are the type of hikes I just don’t even try or at least I have never tried in winter conditions since I did the highest one in the center of the picture when I was in my 20’s. That is Mt. Bisaurin EA2/HU-057 at 2670m a.s.l.

Hello Roger @F5LKW.

Thanks for the exciting video :+1::mountain_snow::goat: and an extra treat for Nioky :service_dog::slightly_smiling_face: A nice winter activation. Thanks also for the qso. See you soon.

Hello Guru @EA2IF.

I have these on my backpack. Discovered at a flea market. Very light, no risk of injury, very elastic. But probably only half as sturdy as your new ones. Good luck with these on your next tour :+1::mountain_snow:
