Our lifts and cable cars are also often swapped for climbing skins: ski touring and piste walking are also becoming increasingly popular on our mountains. Of course, sports enthusiasts also have the opportunity to climb the peaks in winter.

Ski tour Hochwurzen - Guschen

A beautiful ski tour for beginners with a special landscape experience - through sparse high forest and views of the Preunegg Valley and Obertal.

Approach: By bus/car to the valley station of the Hochwurzen Gipfelbahn, then by gondola to the top station.

Ascent: descent from the top station briefly along the toboggan run and then along the 4 season hiking trail to the Hüttecksattel. From there, continue your ascent to Roßfeld (1,919m) and over the Latterfußsattel to Guschen (1,982m).

Descent: From the summit of the Guschen you descend in a north-westerly direction along the ascent route to the Latterfußsattel. From the saddle, continue to the right in an easterly direction until you reach a very sparse forest, through which you descend to a forest road. Along the forest road you start the way back to the starting point.
Please stay on the given route (Wildlife sanctuary).

Skitour Planai-Krahbergzinken

A sensational view of the high alpine mountains of the Schladminger Tauern awaits you at the summit of this skitour.

Approach: with the Planai main cable car or by car via the toll road to the Planai mountain station (Planaihof)

Ascent: The short ski tour to the Krahbergzinken starts near the Mitterhaus 8-seater chairlift. You can reach the starting point with the Planai cable car, Märchenwiesen cable car and Mitterhaus cable car via the marked slopes. At the Krahbergsattel, south of the Mitterhausbahn mountain station, you leave the marked piste area and disappear into the sparse forest on the right. The ascent track leads you further to the northwest flank of the Krahbergzinken, on which the, partly steep, final ascent takes place. Shortly before the summit, unbuckle your skies to walk to the summit. The eastern flank drops steeply here, so caution is advised.

Descent: The descent is first over the northwest flank and then over the lower part of the north hillside towards Mitterhausalm.
