Winterhorn: Ski Season is Here

First tour of the season with the Zürcher Studenten Skitourenclub was to Winterhorn (2660m), a little peak near Gotthard pass on the border between Uri and Ticino. We braved the 6 am departure from Zürich HB, then we braved some nice winds, and skied from just below the summit in a solid whiteout. Good fun with some great people!
