  • External support (e.g. transportation of food, equipment etc.) may not be received. Someone other than the walker/skier may not send out the deposits (of food etc.) onto the mountain. But, it is okay to let someone send out boxes to depots during the trip to limit the lying time. If the depot can be reached with normal parcel deliveries.
  • Food and equipment supplies to be sent out in advance may be sent by (Bussgods, friends/acquaintances etc.) to places the walker/skier will pass, but they have to be picked up by the walker/skier him-/herself. The same goes for additional equipment supplements (e.g. gasoline and fresh food at depots), which therefore also must be arranged by the mountaineer him-/herself.
  • The tour can be conducted all year round.
  • The time of the trip is counted from date to date. Whole days. Not hours.
