This ski tour starts at the parking space at the Gasthof Talwirt. Here and at Bauernladenstüberl Hüttschlag you will find local and self-made delicacies.

Right at the beginning you will pass the Pertillkapelle. The path leads relatively steep uphill. Through the "Geissmahdloch" you come to the Modereggalm (closed winter). Afterwards you continue more comfortable uphill to the Plattenkogel.

For your descent, the slopes from the summit to the Modereggalm are particularly beautiful - especially if there is powder snow.

This tour is feasible from the pre-winter until spring, sufficient snow is therefore necessary. In case of bad weather this tour should not be done.

This tour is not suitable for beginners, since the trail in the area of ​​the "Geissmahdloches" is often icy and is therefore very exhausting. Due to the "Geissmahdloch", this tour requires skills, strength and condition. This also necessary for the descent!

Eine wunderschöne Tour; durchaus anspruchsvoll; die herrliche Abfahrt zur Modereggalm verdient man sich gleich darauf bei der herausfordernden Abfahrt durch den engen Moderegggraben
