On the 11th of January SAS organize a hiking on the snowed footpaths of Mount Parnitha. Due to the extreme weather conditions of last days, snow will be in parts as deep as 50cm to 70cm at the north face, so this walk is recommended only for experienced hikers ! The route will be around ‘‘ Orneo ’’ peak, alt.1.350 m or at lower level depending on the last news.

The hike will take 3 hours approximately and height difference to be covered is only 170 m ! Despite that the level of difficulty is hard.

Due to the rough condition of this hike, waterproof ( Gor-tex if possible ) hiking boots, spats ( to prevent water getting inside the boots ) and raincoat are highly recommended as well as poles and reliable equipment generally. For any case don’t forget also your head-torch …!

After the end of the hike we would have probably the opportunity to take lunch or meal at “ Bafi ” Mountain Hut.

Meeting point is at ‘‘ Aristotelous ’’ square in Thrakomakedones at 09:20 a.m. at the ‘‘ Periptero to Steki ’’ in order to go up to the mountain by cars and probably to serve some members who will come by bus No. 504 from Kifisia metro station, but they have specially to declare that.

For those who are interested in participating, please declare up to 10th  10:00 a.m. Leader will be Georgos Foteinos, e-mail Emergency phone 6945 386255.
