Maybe the last opportunity this season to activate on snow shoes. Parking at the very top of the Ibergeregg pass requires a fee, there are however also some free parking spaces a few meters down the road. I missed the right path at the beginning, which required me to climb up a rather steep slope to get back to the correct route. See the first picture below for the correct entry point.
The snow was wet and heavy, temperature was about 7C at the parking. The main ascent started right at Ibergeregg up to Brünnelistock (1594m, abt. 150m up) and took me about 30min. From there the path follows the almost flat ridge for about 1.5km, ending in a short but steep ascent to the summit of Furggelenstock.

QSO: 75 (58 on 40m, 17 on 30m)
