Winter wonderland in Bavaria - DL/MF-093

It was a beautiful sunny day on Wednesday 16.01.2019,
after 10 days of snowing here in Bavaria.
Time for SOTA action :sunglasses:
I picked up Andi DF5MA at 13:30z and we drove about 50km to Schliersee.

We were at 15:00z on Schliersbergalm (1061m).

We have expected a lot of snow there, but it was really to much snow.

From this point only with snowshoe!

Sunset shortly before we reached the summit.

And finally reached DL/MF-093 (1264m)

Andi DF5MA/p was QRV on 2m FM and me DJ2MX/p on HF in CW.

Very bad propagation on HF because of very large dead zone :frowning_face:
Only 4 QSO’s on 40m CW and 3 QSO’s extra on 2m FM.

Thank you very much dear chaser!
73 and CU soon from another one

Nice report, but - considering the fact that, at the time of your activation and up until two days ago, the Miesbach county, which includes Schliersee, had declared a state of emergency due to the massive snowfall over several days and the avalanche danger in the area was at level 4 - it was a little foolhardy to have attempted the climb on unconsolidated snow at this time. Thankfully, you survived the trip to bring us this report!

What a achivement, sorry about the poor condx on 40 meter. Great story and pictures.
Good luck!

Thank you, Mario!
Very beautiful photos.
Nature is so similar to my Southern Urals )

Servus Rob,

You are absolutely right, but - as you maybe know, Schliersberg DL/MF-093 is a very easy summit and we have
checked the situation before by phone call to Schliersbergalm.
