The weather is going through tough times these days! It has been very unstable for several days now and today Monday, the next weather fronts will arrive here! For our weather, this will bring little that is good: It will be dull and damp all day.


For Tuesday no significant changes are expected. On Wednesday, we will see the transition from low pressure to high pressure with clear spells forming and showers becoming rare. On Thursday, the weather will be bright and warm.

On-piste ski tour and snowshoe trail
This is a great ski tour for beginners (and also for snowshoers) that leads from the top of Patscherkofelbahn lift, past the "Schutzhaus" mountain refuge and up to the summit. The route follows a forest road with wonderful views. It is quite easy to master and does not include any steep sections. 
The tour can be combined with a ride up the mountain on the Patscherkofelbahn lift.

Opening times for on-piste ski tourers and snowshoers:
Daily from 9 am to 6 pm
Thursdays from 9 am to 10 pm
The pistes are closed for ski touring at all other times. Additional piste closures may occur and must be observed at all times.

Important information for on-piste ski touring
(Source: Kuratorium für alpine Sicherheit)
The ski pistes are primarily available for cable car and lift users. To avoid accidents and conflicts, we ask you to observe the following recommendations in addition to adhering to the FIS rules:

1. Observe warnings and local regulations
2. Observe piste closures when a piste or a section of a piste is closed. Dangerous and life-threatening situations may occur when piste machinery is in use, especially cable winches, etc. Pistes may, therefore, be closed for safety reasons for the duration of the work.
3. Only tour up the edge of the piste and in single file.
4. Only cross the piste at points where you are clearly visible and leave plenty of space between one another.
5. Only ski down the edge of freshly prepared pistes. Tracks that freeze overnight can severely affect the quality of the piste.
6. Leave the piste before 6 pm or before 10 pm on Thursdays.
7. Be visible. If it is dark or in the case of poor visibility, wear a head torch, reflective clothing, etc.
8. If there are pistes specifically designated for on-piste ski touring, only use these pistes.
9. Do not take dogs on the pistes.
10. Use the designated car parking areas and pay any applicable parking fees.
