First, you go from the Hinterfeld farm along the forestry road. Here you will pass a chapel. You pass the Harbachalm (closed during winter). This ski tour leads you through wide meadows. First you go through the forest, then over meadows until you reach in some serpentines the summit of the Throneck.

You can ski down aloang the ascent route. Here, the snow is still good, although at other ski tours the snow is already worse.

From the Harbachalm, you continue along the forestry road to the Hinterfeld farm.

Author’s recommendation

At this ski tour you often have powder snow.

Champagnerpowder von oben bis unten! Allerdings sind wir gestern wegen der schlechter werdenden Sichtverhältnisse nicht zum Gipfel, sondern das Kar zwischen Kreuzkogel und Throneck aufgestiegen. Geniale Abfahrt!
