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.

This ski tour is suitable for experienced tourers, and knowledge of deep snow and avalanches is obligatory. Start at the Arzkasten car park (charges apply) and head along the toboggan run. Cross the stream and turn left. The route heads uphill by a clearing in the forest before rejoining the sledge run. Continue to the Lehnberghaus alpine hut and head north to the "Hölle", before going through the sloping corrie to the Grünstein Gorge.

Descent is via the same path.

Variations:

This tour is extremely popular in spring, and is accessible in many variations until May. Remember, however, that they are unsuitable for people with low fitness levels. The ascent can be achieved via all three törls, while each descent can be done from east to west along the peak snow conditions.
