Walking times are calculated from an average speed defined in the hiking difficulty levels sheet. These are indicative times that do not include breaks. Of course in winter snow is an additional parameter to be taken into account. Good hard snow walkers will find the schedules overvalued, small fresh snow walkers will find the schedules significantly undervalued. The itinerary may be slightly modified for security reasons (weather, level of participants) or for organisational reasons (availability of accommodation).
