comment What could be a long and scenic two days backcountry ski tour in Switzerland, bivying on the snow?
@Dakatine Ah OK you already checked the books. You might be right that the books aren't specifically describing two day tours without staying at a hut. A reason could be that this isn't allowed by definition (strictly said you should only bivy as an emergency). If I'd be planning such a tour I would choose two or three normal daily trips and merge them. Of course you have to be able to find a good place for the night. But asking simply for long and scenic/beautiful round-tours, just take a book or a map and choose a route. Most parts in the Alps are beautiful :D

comment Measuring a dangerous snow slope
@anatolyg Yep, please see the video I linked to. This is the method to measure 30° (equilateral triangle) for the "measuring pole" being vertically. Then for each displacement of 10cm you add or subtract three degree. Of course this is just an approximation for a regular pole length.

Thx, also something nice to have! Of course a mobile isn't completely reliable though.

comment Measuring a dangerous snow slope
@ShemSeger I think it's tough to estimate when not looking from the side. Your point of view distorts the scenery. I think estimating the steepness of a slope needs a lot experience.

This is a valid point and yes, your tour always starts at home with preparation. Still you should be able to assess the conditions on-site AND you really should be able to trust and follow your assessment. There are other objective dangers like the weather, cornices, ice and stone fall. If you aren't able to value and re-estimate outdoors, you will never be able to be a good and flexible mountaineer.
