How to lost skis in the Swiss avalanches (Idiots in the avalanche terrain Vol. 2.0)

The task of our 3-person group for the Saturday, January 5th, 2013 was to reach hut Maighelshütte. Followingly we planed to ski on surrouding peaks. We were partially lost during the climb and our delay was approximately 30 minutes. Thus, I was silent at the end, when my colleagues wanted to skin up on the visible trace going through the more steep terrain than proper route going through the more gnetle slope and marked by poles.
