I rented a car and visited two sites on my last trip to Austria on November 4th: Hollenstein and Hoher Lindkogel. The weather was still reasonably warm at the time, and neither site had snow. I started with the Hollenstein site, which appears on aerial photographs to be right next to a road and not far from a hill-top restaurant. However, these are restricted forest roads, so while the road provides convenient access, prepare to park near the base and hike up. The day I went, the road was also in heavy use by other hikers, bicyclers and horse riders.
The summit is off to the side of the road, and up a hill side. There are trees nearby as antenna supports. I did not visit the nearby restaurant because I had just had breakfast and it wasn’t quite lunchtime when I finished.
Using my end-fed antenna, I had 22 QSOs, one on 40m, all the rest on 20m, and all of them in CW mode. Folks were particularly chatty that morning, and I had a QRP/QRP contacts with stations in Greece, Germany, and France.
