Hi all!

Route change, Many benefits, but also a cost for ski lift. It will be cold, anywhere we would go. Still, better than cancelling. I hope you can all make it!

1. Val Bedretto, and entire upper Leventina still has high alert for avalanches (orange) and part of the walk up is exposed on a steep slope. Nara, has less snow, ans lower Avalanche warning (yellow).

2. Very little snow in lower elevations, so we are limited in possible destinations, and must go higher, although it means...coldddd.... So idea of San Bernardino fell, because of higher winds in that area. Nara wind speed is tomorrow much less.

3. Because of low temperatures, was looking for a place where we can have a lunch break indoors. Capanna Piandioss has no guardian in winter, but we can still sit inside. If you want to quickly cook or warm up food, you are kindly asked to leave 3.- in the box.

Difficulty: Less uphill than original walk, but more downhill and distance. Temperatures are low, so wrap up well, remember, we have lunch indoors, so chance to warm up a bit.
