I wrote this a while ago, but had not published it out. It may be useful information for someone looking for a dayhike in the Vienna, Austria area so here goes.
I recently had a day off from work in Vienna and so I headed to Schneeberg to get a day hike in.
I found getting there to be super easy, just take the subway to Philadelphiabrücke which is also the Wein Meidling train station and buy a ticket to Puchberg am Schneeberg and take the first train to Wein Neustadt. These trains are very frequent, I would say about 5 an hour.
At Wein Neustadt look at the boards for trains to Puchberg am Schneeberg and then hop on. This train runs every hour all day.

Since we have gotten some better fast race skins the question came up of what to do with the Black Diamond mohair skins left over. I decided to make a pair of backup full length skins with a tail clip for Kate's skis with one pair of them.

After my first version of race skins we found that the Black Diamond mohair material is not nearly as fast or svelte as Pomoca Race/Race Pro. And since Pomoca is now distributed in the US(skimo.co, Cripple Creek BC, and even our local shop, Wilderness Sports) I decided to pick some up. Rather than buy the expensive Pomoca tip loops I bought the Dynafit Speedskin Fix tip and did a little sew work to make it pretty.

I bought some light skis last fall to use spring skiing and rando racing and decided I'd like to use race style skins. This meant I needed to cut a tip notch since my Movement Random skis don't come with one.
