SKI TOURING

Whether you prefer heading off to the back-country to tackle some insane peak challenges, or the more groomed on-piste tours, you'll find plenty here to keep you entertained. Across from the chalet there are multiple peaks over 2,400m that are calling out to be conquered, and the playground of the Höhe Tauern National Park is just 10 minutes away - take your pick of the peaks and enjoy!

Equally if you're new to the sport or would love to give it a go, there are loads of tours in the area that you can try. The Ronachkopf tour is an easy forested route to a local peak with views over Lake Zell. If you've done ski touring before, you'll know how amazingly rewarding it can be, and if not, we can't recommend it enough. Below are some of our favourite ski tours, for a little touring inspiration!

If you fancy venturing out in the more demanding back-country terrain, make sure you're equipped with all of the right gear and safety equipment. There are an abundance of rental stores near the chalet, where you can hire all of the necessary equipment needed for a safe tour. There are weekly group tours on the Kitzsteinhorn that you can book in to, and also private guided tours available.
