Tom (of Filme von Draussen) somehow convinced Andreas and I to get up at 2am and go on a sunrise ski tour... two of them actually. In retrospect, getting up at 2am was worth the glorious sunrise views we got each time and after coming back into the city in the late morning, the rest of the work day was actually quite productive. Each time we had nice fluffy powder to ski on, which made the early morning much more bearable. So not such a bad idea at all... plus, now we know Hüenerchopf, the area's preferred ski touring mountain for everyone over 65, like the backs of our hands.
The first time we went I left my camera behind (idiot) but managed to snap a few pics of the process during our second outing. Tom's video will tell the rest of the story...
