I am planning on spending a few days trekking in/around the Val Darengo near Lake Como in late April early May. I have a few questions:

1. Map. I have a Global Map hiking map of Lake Como area but the Val Darengo area is not included. Is there a hiking map by Kompass or others that includes this area?

Winter hut tour in the Dolomites?

We are interested in doing a 2-3 day winter hiking tour in the Dolomites (snow shoes, no skis), preferably with some overnight stays in huts. Does anybody have good tips for such a tour, taking into account huts and avalanche dangers? I found that many of the huts are private and don't have winter rooms ..

Any information is very welcome!

Julian Alps in April

Hi all,

My climbing team is planning a trip to the eastern Alps between the 1st and 15th of April, this year. We're looking for a moderate, alpine route(s) that would be in condition. I know couloirs are probably out, but classic face/ridge climbs in the PD/PD+/AD range would be great, especially if the climbs involve glacier travel and the potential for a high camp.

I've already taken a look at Großglockner and Triglav but ...
