9/5/11 – Bernese Oberland in pictures

The Konkordiaplatz from the Konkordiahuette (2,850m)

Enjoy these pictures of some of the wonderful views we enjoyed during this tour – although remember, the weather this spring has been exceptionally brilliant for ski touring. On my first hut-to-hut tour, in the Silvretta region a few years ago, it was thick fog every day…
