From March 2 until 6 photographers and all mountain fans gather for the fourth edition of the Laufrauf (meaning 'get up the hill') at the Stuibenhütte in the Wettersteingebirge. This year's theme is Du blendest, Alter (which doesn't really translate into english as it's a play on words with photography blinds and someone being absolutely great) and teams of 2-3, consisting of riders and photographers, are getting uphill without any motorized help to take pictures with the focus on "person in the landscape". The organizers want to use the event as a way to criticize the scene-specific media categorization that is taking place in our sport and on the same page the alpine environment as a projection of touristic desire.
