Unterholzhof Piesendorf - Bauernhof Urlaub in den Alpen

Learn to read the weather in the mountains and enjoy your vacation more safely.

The packing list for the vacation in the mountains should ideally match the prevailing weather conditions in the target region. And here in the Alps, sunshine does not always mean warm and warm jackets in winter are not the only thing that you have to consider while packing especially when you travel in from more stable weather regions. On a day in the snow, especially on the glacier, you might get a sunburn and frozen off toes at the same time.

Number 1 on the packing list should always be sunscreen, even in winter, as the snow surface reflects the sun’s rays and intensifies its effect many times over. It must also be taken into account that you are closer to the sun on the glacier at around 3000 meters above sea level.

Number 2 on the packing list would of course be a variation of warm and weatherproof clothes. The best way to protect yourself from the cold is to work with the layer look. So it’s better to have many thin layers on top of each other than one single thick layer. Since the temperatures often vary enormously over the course of the day, this method is also best for adapting to the changing temperatures. And be especially aware of signs of freezing, such as a white-blue discoloured nose, cheeks, fingers or toes, it is best to then warm up in the hut and treat the affected areas with lukewarm water until feeling returns.

Last but not least, an important tip for a good and safe time on the road. High-quality winter tires are often underrated but could make the difference between a safe or sketchy time on the road. However, they cannot always replace snow chains so this would be an extra to bring along for your holidays. As a sidenote, when it is snowing around 0ยฐC, the snow tends to be more slippery than snowfall in colder temperatures so try to keep in mind that snow is never the same and adjust accordingly. so try to keep in mind that snow is never the same and to adjust accordingly. This can save you a lot of worries, especially with heavy cars and on the downhill.
