You'll get the thrill of being out in winter conditions and a chance to learn in a relatively safe environment. There's lot of additional risks involved when going into the mountains in winter.
If you've done the trekking, you'l have a first/better idea of what extra gear you'll need. The mountains will be colder and likely windier! After that try to read up on avalanche danger, crevasse rescue, self-arrest,... (and buy the equipment needed for it!) . And/or take a winter mountaineering course!
AND read this thread.

Any more ideas from Austria, Slovenia, maybe from Slovakia?
I did the Stuedlgrat and Palavicini rinne in summer, and I intend to revisit Stuedlgrat this summer too.
How is that in winter? Has anyone around here done it?
