“From sunshine to thunder & lightning”
Whether you get caught out by the rain on your hike is not just down to luck. Always consult the weather forecast and maps when preparing for your tour. Listen to local weather advice and never forget that the weather in the mountains can change very quickly.
Radiant sunshine can turn into a thunderstorm in no time, potentially turning your dream tour into a nightmare! When you notice a thunderstorm approaching, seek shelter at the nearest hut and wait for it to pass.
Planning for inclement weather is a crucial aspect of accident prevention.
