Stoos -> Lidernenhuette

Finally a weekend with a good weather forecast where we're both in town!

We start, after a good tram-train-train-bus-funicular trip in Stoos. There are tons of people around, but they're all skiing, so we head out of the masses pretty quickly. A nice walk in the sun, mostly following the contour lines, takes us around towards the Laubgarten. At first we're on the cross-country ski route, then following a nicely stamped-out path. It's blissfully quiet and sunny. :-)

After passing through the Wannentritt we do a quick lunch break and enjoy the views before heading down to the valley floor. A bit along the valley and then the path takes us up the other side, through the woods, then up, up, up to the top of the valley side and along to the Lindernenhuette itself. This is one of those approaches where you hike and hike and wonder when you're going to see the hut and then, all of a sudden, it's there, five minutes away.

The hut is 5 minutes from the top of a gondola in an area with a lot of easy ski tours, and the weather was good, so as soon as we got there we were done with the solitude. :-)
