Greetings Andreas, We should all meet here for skiing! WOW. Thanks for sharing.



Andreas Wiesner on November 21, 2007

Thanks for commenting Rich! I agree, we should go skiing there - there´s a skifield on the western slopes of the vulcano. But in fact (you can see it in the background beneath the clouds) this picture was taken in summer... I think in wintertime the shelter will be buried by snow

Greetings, Andreas!

Thanks baiyunheitu!

Yes, it looks like a winter scenery, but in fact... it´s a summer picture. In the background you can see the green landscape in the valley below.

Cheer, Andreas!

Thanks Ryanhk and Maksim!

This hut is for seismic sensor equipment because it´s on top of a vulcano, but there is a small room for climbers in need of an emergency shelter aswell.
