Just wondering if anyone has some advise on what the ice conditions would be like in mid to late april for routes like the ginat on the droite, euster direct on the mid and croz at this time of year. Is it too late?

In reply to saclimber2000: Usually such routes will be fine.

Right now the Ginat and the Eugster are very white, unusually white, which augurs well, but they are not seeing much action cos of the challenging snow condtions.

getting of the Croz would be even more challenging at any time outside the autumn, so really doesnt see much winter action...

In reply to saclimber2000: Could be ideal this year, I reckon.
