Review of past FISCHER TRANSALP tours

The Fischer Transalp 2016
From Reschen in Vinschgau to Allgäu and Oberstdorf in six days – that was the Fischer Transalp 2016. 13 adventurers joined forces with extreme sportsman Axel Naglich in a unique ski touring experience. Despite the forecasts of bad weather to begin with, Fischer mountain guide Peter Perhab looks back on an unforgettable tour: "30cm of powder snow, brilliant sunshine and a panorama which is second to none – we can look back on one of the most beautiful Fischer Transalp tours ever!"
