I've been hiking the the Alps for 20years and normally I go skiing every winter. But I see more and more pictures of people hiking in the snow.
Is it possible to go hiking in February in the alps? If so, what information would I need? I always go to Zillertal in Austria, and on the website are "Winter hikes" but they are mostly just from town to town.
In my eyes it would be perfect to hike in Zillertal as it is very popular for skiing so I can stop in one of the restaurants and refill.
Would there be a risk with avalanches?
