EquipmentProper backpacking makes a lot of things easier:
Pack heavy things first. The water bottle (ideally: 1 liter or more) should always be within easy reach. All things that are often needed such as sunglasses, camera, cell phone or hiking map belong on top.
An emergency equipment including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended! Never forget rain protection on alpine tours!
In winter, when ski touring and snowshoeing, appropriate safety equipment (avalanche transceiver, avalanche shovel and probe) is mandatory! Before the tour always call up the avalanche situation report (www.lawine-steiermark.at).
Burial search devices, avalanche shovels and probes can be rented at the nature park office for a small fee.
