Ski touring recommendations

This page will give you some ideas for ski tours in the region of Innsbruck. A great way to get a wonderful insight into the wonders of winter, especially under good conditions. These are, of course, only suggestions, as the final responsibility lies with the tourer to inform him or herself about current conditions before setting out.

Ski touring is a sport in which the risks should never be underestimated. We cannot accept any responsibility for snow conditions, avalanche risks and other outside influences. Every ski tourer is responsible for their own adequate avalanche protection and should check all current conditions with Tyrol's Avalanche Warning Service.

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 first section from the bottom lift station to Stiglreith can be done on the gondola.
