The weather in the mountains is always unpredictable and variable. For the first two days there was a strong wind and the clouds were low. The weather changed on the second day in the afternoon. The Alps peaks showed up in the clouds.

If you prefer to ride on easier ski routes, I recommend the Rastkogel ski resort. The blue routes are really not very steep here.
