comment Where in the Alps is it safe to drink the water without filtering?
@gerrit That's true, but it is sometimes difficult to know if the sign is there only for legal reasons. I think in this case it is better to be safe than sorry.

When you're talking about a ski trip are you referring to go skiing for some days or are you referring to ski mountaineering?

comment Is there a definitive list of the tallest mountains in the world that require little or no mountaineering experience?
Looking for European High Points is maybe not the smartest choice. The real high points in Europe are not easy to climb, such as Mt. Blank, Elbrus, Mt. Ararat or Monte Rosa. So probably Teide or Mulhacen in Spain are your options. The next European High Point would be Zugspitze in Germany, but Zugspitze is slightly below 3000 meters. there are countless mountains in the alps that are above 3000 meters and easy to mount.

comment How to get more information about a planned tour?
Thanks a lot for this long answer. I'm living in the Alps and German is my native language so I don't have any problems to read it. My problem is that the leaflet from the Heilbronner Hütte has very different references to the distance of the tour than other sources e.g. hikr.org, gpstracks.com, Wormser Hütte, etc. Therefore I wanted to find a more objective source.

Thanks for the hint. I now managed to get a GPS track of the tour (from www.gpsies.com) and then plotted this with GPSVisualizer to get a profile.
