You have to work for the Gesäuse, especially in winter. If you want to go high, you have to walk. But not necessarily on skins. The non-skier is not condemned to a life in the valley. He can walk the mountains, admittedly not in mountain boots, but in snowshoes. And is far less dependent on good snow than the ski tourer: whether powder or slush, it is all the same to the snowshoe hiker. Thanks to snowshoe claws!
