Austria: Backcountry Skiing - Stubeck
Finally we started our backcountry skiing season, but we had to drive ourselves to Austria. In Gmünd we left the motorway and started driving to Frido-Kordon-Hütte, 1649 m. We parked our car and put the skis on and our ascent began. In 2 hours we were standing at the top of Stubeck, 2370 m. As we already knew, the terrain was easy, so we didn't have any difficulties skiing back to the hut, where we ordered our well deserved beer. We finished the day driving back home with a stop in our favorite local restaurant.
