Happy New Year!!!

This year the snow was early on the Alps, but it is not too soon to prepare the next outing on the Via Alpina – all the more since the first stages starting from Monaco or Trieste stay accessible all winter. We are very much looking forward to presenting you the laureates of the three Via Alpina Travel Fellowships by mid-January, as well as the other proposed projects, very varied and interesting.

The Via Alpinists’ community is growing! Last year you were more than 200,000 to visit the website, Germans and Italians leading, followed by the French, Americans (USA) and Swiss. Internationality is a reality! Thanks to all also for your comments, which considerably enrich the site!

In this time of good resolutions, we’d like to appeal to you: we often receive congratulations for the exhaustiveness of the information published on this website and freely accessible. If you have the possibility to make a donation to the Via Alpina, you will help us concretely to pursue our work in this direction.

All our best wishes for a fine year 2011, with splendid moments of contemplation, effort and encounters of the trails of our dear Alps!
