Re: Anyone in the Swiss Alpine Club

Hi there

I am game with all of your mentioned activities. Goes every weekend to the mountains to play. Not really gotten my MTB out running that much though.

Just joined the SAC UTO, lives in Zürich. But havent done anything with them yet regarding activities etc.

Best

Frederik

Also, I would be more than happy to meet other english speaking people, who are skiing, skitouring, mtb:ing or climbing these georgeous mountains around us. Anyone out there? I am looking for people to share these hobbies with; mountain sports aren't really the kind of ventures you can or should do alone. So, trustworthy and happy people, experienced or novice, raise your hand!
Yes, yes, yes, and yes - we are up for all of that... Sign us up! Still quite beginner with ski-touring - just followed PTKate around all last year, but learning... So many mountains to explore, so little time!

Re: Anyone in the Swiss Alpine Club

Does anyone have the time/address for the SAC Uto club meetings? I was looking around on the website but Google Translate now thinks I'm a computer sending automated queries and has stopped translating

Was a member of the Sydney rock climbing club, done a bit of ice climbing in New Zealand and really looking forward to doing some more!

Re: Anyone in the Swiss Alpine Club

Hi there-
I think if I were you, I'd try to get along to this place

Adresse und Telefon (identisch mit Clublokal):
Sekretariat SAC-UTO
Stampfenbachstrasse 57
8006 Zürich
044 362 96 70
sekretariat(ät)sac-uto.ch

on a Wednesday between 12.30 -18.30. They re-opened on 6th January. For finding the place you'll perhaps need more help than their plan! Type
'Stampfenbachstrasse 57 8006 Zürich' into this map - might be easier.

If you cannot manage to get there because of working hours, try writing an e-mail to them. The worst thing they can do is ignore it. You'll probably find someone who can help you further.

Hope you find what you need.

Re: Anyone in the Swiss Alpine Club - Via Ferrata

Hello - are there any members out there who have joined the Swiss Alpine Club and have experience of doing Via Ferrata's (climbing)?

I have been looking for a Via Ferrata club in Switzerland, but I am not having much luck.

Does anyone have any contacts / useful information they could pass on please. I am a beginner at Via Ferrata's and would like to meet / join a club with like minded people.

Re: Anyone in the Swiss Alpine Club

A search on the Forum brought up this via Ferrata Thread. Quite a bit of helpful info there.

- an interesting subject - perhaps I'll see doing one of these routes when I'm out hiking.

Re: Anyone in the Swiss Alpine Club

hello - many thanks for the information, I already have the equipment, helmet, lanyards and a harness.

I have done the one already in Engelberg and also Andermatt and Neuchatel.

If anyone is interested in organising a group climb, please let me know.
There is a very good book on VF's in Switzerland, available on Amazon.

You could try the Glocals site - They seem to be doing Via Ferrata's quite regularly.

Re: Anyone in the Swiss Alpine Club

Hey guys,

I recently joined SAC-Bern (as I am studying here)..I would be glad to meet up with few English speaking member from this part of Switzerland. Especially from from my past experience..I went for glacier climbing in Valis last summer and being a beginner and the sole English speaker it was a little difficult for me to keep up with the other members and learn all the technical details

hope to find few more people here with same problem as mine!

cheers,
Neha

You ought to be careful on these courses if you don't totally understand what's going on. A misunderstanding could be deadly.
But, anyway, you did survive!

There's a bit in Ranulph Fiennes's autobiography where he tells a story of when he went on a parachuting course in France. By his own admission, his French wasn't very good.
When told about a night-time jump that they were all going to do, he thought they said they were going to land in a lake (and when you do this, you release from your parachute a few metres about the water so you don't get tangled in your chute).
He was a bit shaken and shocked when he landed on a tarmac runway instead!

Thanks Tom! but yes I did survive..In fact I even enjoyed it! But it would be great if there were few more English speaking people around although the last part of the climb was a little challenging for me due to bad weather.

Re: Anyone in the Swiss Alpine Club

So, this thread seems to come to alive quite frequently. I ask like the others, any tips on an alpine club in Zurich? I just moved here this week (to study for ~2 years at least), I have about two years experience in mountaineering, not very much but I've done a lot of hiking (multiday with camping), walking on icy and snowy glaciers, some rock climbing, touched ice climbing and very interested in doing a lot more of all of this (partly the reason I moved here).

I've found some info by googling around but this forum seem like a good place to meet people so here I am. I can crawl my way through german texts but I'm afraid I can't say I speak it (although I'm very interested in learning it).

Thanks!
Kári
