very few snow in the area - some parts of the route north of the Schöntal creek were free of snow. Weather detoriated after we had reached the summit (last part on foot) We took downhill south of the Schöntal creek, following some tracks. That was not the best choice - hard and steep snow and forest, esp. for Sabine on her 2nd ski tour.
