While consulting for a Swiss outdoor company a marketing campaign was launched to commemorate their 150th anniversary.
The idea was to climb 150 summits within one year and spread the locations across the entire globe.
While our climb up Etna in Sicily and Stromboli was not a huge challenge, the way down certainly proved to be a lot of fun.
We did run into some tricky situations though. Being baffled that we had to rope up while ascending we soon found out why.
On the way there are always hot air pockets that form under the snow and pretty soon one of us ‘disappeared’ into one.
On the way down the snow conditions change so drastically that you are constantly adjusting your riding.
All in all an amazing trip with great people, beautiful nature and just the best food ever.
