Vipiteno Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 0 photos
We had - as you see from the pictures - the best thinkable weather and therfore it was just pleasant and nothing else. But do not forget that you are in a region which only a short period of the year allows to stroll round there a we did. weather changes can be extremely rapid and mean at these altitudes that you find yourself suddenly right in the clouds with a visibility limited to short distances. Therefore never leave the marked paths and trails if there are the slightest doubts in the weather. The temperature drops can be very rapid and drastic, too and temperatures below the freezing point and snowfall are possible at all times of the year. Try always to get detailled weatherforecsts and ask experienced locals (there is always at least one on every lodge). And carry always several layers of dress and good rain protection in your backpack. And a map, preferentially scaled 1: 50.000, there are excellent maps covering every region of the Alps avaiable in bookshops and shops selling outdoor gear in the respective regions.
