Hi girls, a lot has happened in the last few weeks – we have expanded our team from three to eight women! A few days ago we had our first team meeting and now the new hiking dates are fixed 🙂
Yay, five new team member!
We were very happy to receive so many applications for our project and the selection was really difficult. Vanessa, Nadine and Vicky are now supporting us as hike organizers. All three not only love to be outdoors themselves, but also enjoy to organize hikes for others and create great mountain experiences! The SMG team is further complemented by Sarah and Pascale. Sarah will support us in communication and organization as community manager, so she might answer you on Instagram in the future 😉 And without Pascale nothing will happen in 2023 – as our event manager she will help us to put all the great hiking offers on our website for you! All five will be presented in more detail on the website and in our stories in the coming weeks. Welcome to the team 🙂
Hiking dates and new regions in 2023
Last year it has worked well to fix the dates at the beginning of the year, and therefore we do it again this year. What is new is that we finally can and want to cover almost all of Switzerland! Because our new team members live where others go on vacation 😉 Vanessa from Valais will primarily offer hikes in her region, Nadine, who also lives in Valais, will also offer hikes as far as Ticino or Central Switzerland. And last but not least Vicky from Central Switzerland will offer her region and whatever else she likes 😉 Katerina, Ariane and Julia continue to cover northern / eastern Switzerland, but maybe sometimes with a detour to other regions.
So get out your agenda:
29.04. (organized by Vicky)
13.05. (organized by Nadine)
04.06. (organized by Vanessa)
24.06/25.06. Get together / hut weekend
08.07. (organized by Vicky)
29.07. (organized by Nadine)
05.08. (organized by Julia)
26.08. (organized by Ariane)
09.09. (organized by Vanessa)
17.09. (organized by Katerina)
01.10. (organized by Ariane)
15.10. (organized by Vanessa)
17.12. Snowshoe hike if there’s enough snow,
otherwise in January (organized by Julia)
What exactly will be done and where it goes we will always publish about 2-3 weeks before the hike. However, it will all be rather hikes in the range T2-T3 – not because we would not want more, but for liability reasons, we can unfortunately not offer more difficult levels as private individuals!
Our hikes will remain free of charge, but like last year you have the possibility to send the organizers of a hike a small tip via TWINT after the hike for their work (about 2 days preparation plus one day for the realization per hike). So if you liked the hike you are welcome to send what you think is appropriate 🙂 The number for twinten you get from each organizer, because the communication before the hike usually takes place anyway via Whatsapp.
Get together - a joint event for all mountain lovers!
Our last get together was so great that we definitely want to offer it again! For this we have chosen the following date:
24th – 25th of June
It will again go to a hut and we are also already brainstorming for cool actions / offers for you (last year there was a photography workshop, a via ferrata, a painting course and climbing lessons with mountain guide). If you can be there and offer something & would like to, send us an email!
That's it - see you soon!
We hope to meet you in person soon on one of our hikes. In the meantime, if you have any comments or questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. And by the way: with our newsletter you will always be informed as soon as a new event is posted. No advertising – promised! Sign up here:
