Sommer Winter

Skitour

The Grossglockner 3,798m

The highest mountain of Austria is something very special, not only for Austrians. Climbing this peak in winter is a great and exciting challenge, that offers great skiing combined with pure alpinism.

What’s to be expected:

  • This is a 2-day trip as the ascent is quite long. Starting point is Kals am Grossglockner, approximately 1 hour by car from Zell am See. On day 1 we hike up to Stüdlhütte, a cosy mountain hut. It should not take much longer than 2-3 hours, before we enjoy the evening by having a nice dinner and a good glass of wine.
  • The next day we start early up the glacier to reach in 3 hours Austria’s highest hut, Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte. Around here the terrain gets a bit more challenging, why we leave our skis behind. With crampons and ice axe, protected by rope, we go on for the last short but exciting 1.5 hours to the summit. After enjoying the view and the golden cross, built for Austria’s last Emperor, we start the descent and finish the day at Lucknerhaus by having coffee and cake in the sun.

Two days of individual skitouring guiding by a certified IFMGA Mountain Guide and Level-4 Ski Instructor, Rental of harness, helmet and crampons, Rental of beacon/tranceiver, shovel and probe, Amazing day out in the backcountry
