Enjoy a beautiful descent from the Gruberscharte, through the extensive Gruberkar to Ramsau am Dachstein. A technically-challenging descent of 1.150 vertical meters makes up for the 1h30 ascent.

Equipment

To go on a tour without proper preparation and equipment is reckless. Not only your own life is easily risked, but also that of your fellow mountaineers in the same region.

Must-haves: avalanche transceiver, mobile phone, shovel, avalanche probe, first aid kit, sufficient food and drinks, possibly additional clothing to change.

On the day of the tour: Read the avalanche situation report and weather forecast and check what effects it will have on your planned ski tour: possibly adjust or cancel the ski tour. Are all participants fit and healthy enough to go on the tour? If not, change or cancel the ski tour.

  • Safety equipment (shovel, probe, avalanche transceiver)
  • ABS-backpack recommended
  • Via-Ferrata equipment for access via the Austriascharte (Rosmariestollen/Walchersteig)
