route_description

On Saturday, took the last (and only) cable car at 16:30 from Felskinn. Departure at 05:30 in the morning via the normal route and back the same way.

weather and conditions


Cloudy with poor visibility and some light snowfall.


Very good conditions on the fully covered glacier with locally 10 cm of fresh snow. No need for ski crampons. Still possible to ski down almost all the way to the Felskinn cable car station in Saas-Fee.

timing

05:30 Start from Britannia hut
10:00 Summit (15 minute break)
11:30 Back at refuge

hut_comment

Very friendly staff and extremely well organized hut. There is even a public tablet to check the weather forecast, etc.

personal comments

First 4000 on skis. Unfortunately zero visibility on the summit and very limited on the ski down. But with fantastic snow conditions considering the late season (thanks to the friendly French guide and his client that didn't mind us following their fresh tracks all the way down from the summit).
