DAY 3: RE-DESIGNING THE ROUTE WITH LAND
The third stage was the hardest: due to bad weather and the high avalanche warning, our team has had to return to Hallstatt. Thanks to Land, in the morning they have been able to re-design a new route and upload it to the GPS Aventura 2, so they could return without problems to the charming little town in the Alps.
AVENTURA 2 CHALLENGE STARTS TODAY
Our four explorers, equipped with the new Aventura 2 and relying on the TwoNav ecosystem to guide them through the Alps in the middle of winter, have a 64-km long route ahead of them with an elevation gain of 4,650 m. It's a cross-country skiing trek that will take place over 4 stages, one per day. In the first stage, the TwoNav team will leave from Lake Traun. What surprises does this stage have in store?
DAY 1: CRAZY WEATHER IN THE ALPS
The Aventura 2 Challenge team started the first stage of the route yesterday, however, bad weather conditions have forced the team to rethink the route: thanks to the Land software, they have been able to define a more direct and safe itinerary to the refuge where they have spent the night (Simoneyhütte 2,203 m). The new route is a direct one of 14 km and 1,700 m of unevenness. From the forests of Hallstatt to Krippenstein, the Aventura 2 Challenge team has overcome a long climb with 1,500 m of unevenness with wind and fog, a section without visibility, which has made it essential to use the GPS to get to the shelter. At 1,900 m, the strong wind has made the new route even more dangerous. But thanks to Aventura 2, our team has managed to get safe and sound to the shelter, where they have spent the night to rest and recharge the batteries before the next stage.
DAY 2: CONQUERING DACHSTEIN HIGHEST PEAK
On this stage, the team travelled along the backbone of the Dachstein massif. They climbed Dachstein highest peak (2963 m) in just one day. It was a hectic and challenging day, specially due to the strong snow and wind. In spite of the risk of avalanche, our team made it to the night shelter just before the storm started. Great job team!
