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. The ascent starts at the beginning of the toboggan run. Cross the stream and turn left. The route heads uphill by a clearing in the forest before rejoining the sledge run. Shortly before the Lehnberghaus alpine hut, a lane heads up to the Lacke, and a wonderful view of the Inn Valley. Head along the south-west face, first level, then steeply uphill. Head through the depression or alternatively continue left along the south-east face to the summit. The descent follows the same path. This is a very popular ski tour, especially in winter and even in the spring snow.
