Start at the lift car park in Oberperfuss (fees apply). Tour up to the left of the piste until you reach the Egghof and then continue on the edge of the piste for a short distance to Stiglreith. When you get to the toboggan run above Stiglreith, you can turn left off the piste and follow a very picturesque route through the forest and past the reservoir to just below the Rosskogelhütte mountain hut. This route crosses the toboggan run several times until the last short section when it runs along the edge of the toboggan run. At the last bend before the Rosskogelhütte mountain hut, take the track that leads towards the Krimpenbachalm, past the mountain huts and up the south-facing slope to the summit cross. Alternatively, you can tour up the edge of the piste from Rosskogelhütte to the summit cross. Wonderful panoramic views. For ambitious ski tourers, it is possible to continue the tour up the nearby Windegg. (It is then very important to be aware of the avalanche danger). This ski tour is well-suited to beginners.

The route from Axams to Axamer Kögele is a popular and challenging on-piste ski tour. The tour starts at the southern end of Axams. Shortly before the turnoff for Axamer Lizum ski resort, you will come to a few paid  parking spaces on Kögelestraße road near the Sonnenlift Axams drag lift. From there, the tour starts over wide meadows before coming to the start of the actual ski route. From this point, the tour leads steadily uphill on the Axamer Abfahrt ski route between two wooded areas. At the beginning, there are two very steep sections (often icy in late winter/spring) to overcome and then the terrain flattens out a bit in the middle section. From the upper treeline, the route leads up two more steep slopes before reaching the destination, the Axamer Kögele.  Descent: on the off-piste Axamer Abfahrt ski route that leads down into the valley WARNING! Please note the avalanche danger levels! For tours in off-piste terrain, it is essential to have appropriate equipment, local knowledge and experience of assessing hazards such as avalanche danger, etc. The tourist office assumes no liability for tour suggestions.
