Spring hike through Corsica

April 12, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

The date of our spring hike through Corsica is fast approaching. At the beginning of May we will head for Corsica for a week. The record snowfall this year is a bit of a problem. There hasn’t been so much snow on the island since 1979.

We are planning to hike around Corte and cross the Breche de Capitello (approx. 2,300 meters). Because the snow is still almost 4 meters deep, we will avoid the highest peaks. The snow level is currently at about 1,500 meters. We hope that it will be about 1,800 meters by the beginning of May.

Here is the packing list. It includes a few items that are new for me. The Therm-a-Rest NeoAir is also on its way from England and should arrive sometime this week.

I will send the tour description with photos after the hike.
