From the Braunschweiger Hut to Vent

The route over the Rettenbachjoch was very steep, the path was narrow, and we would not have liked to walk this way under snowy conditions. Once at the Col, we entered the Ski-arena of Sölden which was quite a cultural shock. The World-cup ski racing track was covered with a white plastic canvas, with concrete buildings and parking places everywhere - sure enough it would be nice once the whole is covered with snow, but for now it looked just sad.. he rest of the trip was not much of an excitement either: a long slog downwards and along the Ötztal-valley, with a navigation error which resulted in walking six kilometers along a tarmac road.. but the end of the day Mam picked us up and transported us to the amazing Aquadome Hotel in Längenfeld, where we would spend a well deserved (real!) resting day.
