“The whole trip was fantastic. The only downside was the failure to inform the leader of my requirement for a gluten free diet. I don't think Ende had even heard of the condition, but, when it was explained to him he coped brilliantly even to the extent of preparing my main dish separately.”

“Another good week in Dobbiaco. Worries about snow conditions were unnecessary. Most trails were open, although not all had cut tracks. This is one advantage of a major x-c skiing centre - they were busy making artificial snow to improve the tracks used in the marathon that was run shortly before this week, and the World Cup races that were due in a few weeks. Plenty of scope for a grade 3 group.”
