Austria: Glacier Mountaineering Course: Day 1

Our mountaineering section organised a Glacier Mountaineering Course and I joined them. 13 of us gathered in Bistrica pri Tržiču and together we drove over Austria, Germany, back to Austria to Ötztal. We parked our vans in Vent and on our first day we walked to Breslauer Hütte, 2844 m. We hydrated for a while and then our instructor Miha demonstrated, how to properly move on the glacier, how to use the ropes and how to rescue someone if he falls into the crack.

Group of 13 in Vent: Upper row: Tuši, Rok, Žiga, Matic, Jernej, Beno, Matic, Nejc, Metod, Lower row: Johnny, Slavc, Miha, Klara

11 of us continued on foot, 2 of them used the chair lift for 9€, to gain an hour

Sunny day, so even cows were resting
