The Hotel Post in Sulden, Italy sent us this photo of the Ötzi crew posing in front of the mighty Ortler peak. At 3905 m, the Ortler, or Ortles in Italian, is the highest mountain in the Eastern Alps outside of the Bernina Range. The Hotel Post also wrote a nice piece about our group on their blog. Fortunately, it’s all in German, so here’s a brief translation.
‘American tour operator Ryder-Walker Alpine Adventures recently brought a delightful group of guests to stay at our hotel. The group had just come over from the Hintergrathütte in pouring rain. Following a bit of relaxation in the hotel wellness center and spa, the group enjoyed a boisterous night at the hotel bar. The group hit the trail the following day in the direction of the Payerhütte/Trafoi under bright, clear skies.’
A boisterous night at the hotel bar? Indeed. With RW Guides Daniel Sundqvist and Porter Teegarden at the helm, we’re not surprised. Those two love a good tea.
