A spring trip to Wetterstein

The idea of going on an extended weekend trip to the Alps has always been one of my specialities, especially in spring time, when the many short holiday breaks offer a good opportunity for a small trip down south. However, the problem with such an early trip is, that there often still is a lot of snow which might render the ascent more difficult, but then you just have to find a lower mountain and starting point. Garmisch-Partenkirchen, for instance.
