Geocache Description:

Highway through the snow: A1 (Katschberg)

From the top of the Aineck at 2220 meters all the way down to St. Margarethen im Lungau at 1075 meters, goes the 6 kilometers long A1 skislope, described as “possibly the most beautiful “Talabfart” of the Alpes.

And indead a beautiful slope this is. You start on top of the Aineck, far above the treeline, where it can be very cold and windy. Slowly you cross the treeline to find yourself in the silence of the forest. A nice trip for the whole family. Try it yourself and have a nice lunch one of the restaurants in St. Margarethen. I can advise the Kaisersmarren …

The cache

About half way down (or up) you will find a small green, waterproof, container. It was placed when there was 3 meters of snow, so the chances that is covered with snow are small…

Though it can be really quiet here, there are also moments there are a lot of muggles around. So use stealth when needed…

Happy caching!
