Back From The Alps

It has been almost a week since I came back from the Valais. A small review of the week around New Year’s Eve, however, I will not deny you.

On Sunday the 27th of December, we finally arrived at the campsite after 8 hours of driving. Alex was already on the scene and started to build his Patybunker, a Mountain Hardwear Satellite 6. Shortly we added and helped with the construction. When the tent finally stood and we stored our equipment in this palace of tent, there was still 1 to 2 drinks in the restaurant connected to the campsite in Randa. In the meantime, a petroleum stove heated the tent to a pleasant temperature. After a few nice hours in the tent, we floated into the land of dreams.

The next day we spent some time shopping, a visit to Zermatt, and some material tests, such as building our small tents for the mountain. By evening the rest of the troop arrived. We were now to 5th and the next morning it could go.

With the Skitaxi we went to Zermatt, where we were extremely impressed by our oversized touring equipment.Once across the inner city, we went to the ski lift, which was so crowded that we decided to walk the first stage from Zermatt to Furi. From there we went with the Großgondel to Trockener Steg. The first stage from there takes us across the ski slope to the Theodulhütte, where we can end the evening and enjoy a cozy bed like a quality sleeping bag.

The next morning it becomes clear that a terrible wind is raging outside and visibility is severely limited. Our next destination is the small Matterhorn. I am already clear on the way that my height adjustment does not work as great as I would have liked. So I let the others go, buckle my backpack, and give me a few cups of tea. I then repeat this process until the rest of the group is concerned and Alex comes back to see what’s going on with me.In retrospect, however, my continuous drinking has turned out to be very good. At the top of the small Matterhorn, I still have a headache, but in the course of the evening they lose themselves. Anders, however, looked at the poor Molte. He also had problems with the height, but almost nothing drunk and then surrendered in the night, in the attempt to catch up the drink.

The next day we had no choice but to descend again, so that we could all celebrate an unhappy New Year. Daniel and I then carried Alex’s sled across Zermatt once, with the oblique and sometimes astonished glances were certain to us. A few package tourists brought out even open astonishment and admired us for it: -/Once we were also held for mountain guides.

After another night at the MH Palace, Chris, Alex and Daniel made their way back to the summit. Since my travel ticket was now blown up and I could not pay the cableway a second time, but the time was too short to run, Molte and I stayed downstairs and spent the next two days with culinary masterpieces, frozen milk and many interesting conversations, like for example The edible equipment or the experiences we have made in Scandinavia.

Then came the painful day of parting from Switzerland. With weeping eyes we see the last mountains behind the highway…..
