SAC avalanche safety course

Saturday: A rather long train trip to Oberalppass, hike up to the Maighels Hütte with some instructive bits along the way, a bit of theory in the cabin.
Sunday: Hike back to Oberalppass, some practice with the Barryvox near the train train tracks, then up to the Fellilücke. Abort the planned lunch up top due to the extreme wind and blowing snow. Hike back down to Oberalppass with lunch along the way, more Barryvox practice, another long train ride back home.

Very cool and educational, if a bit uninteresting on the pure hiking side.
