The tour begins very comfortably along the prepared forest path. After a short time, the path branches off into the forest, slightly uphill to the Rittisstadl. A ski tour ideal for everyone who needs a short break in between. Descend via the piste, so access is only permitted during operating hours from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.. Subject to a fee - ticket required! Ticket price: € 8.00 day ticket (incl. parking fee)

Safety information

Changes in weather patterns, quick falls in temperature, thunderstorms, wind, fog and snow are some of the dangers that can be encountered on a hiking tour. Hosts of alpine huts and mountain refuges have a lot of experience in the mountains and can give good advice about weather and the trails. Poor equipment, overestimation of one's own capabilities, carelessness, poor personal constitution and/or wrong judgement  can lead to critical situations. In case of thunderstorms: avoid summits, ridges and steel ropes.

GPS data and orienteering

Available GPS data - just like hiking maps - is only a guidance for orientation and can never depict a trail exactly with all its details. Especially at dangerous spots it is essential to judge on site how to proceed.

In an emergency please call:

  • 140 - for Alpine emergencies (all over Austria)
  • 112 - European GSM emergency number

In winter, caution is advised on even supposedly easy tours. The ground can be slightly icy in shady places, and there is a risk of avalanches on slopes. Mountain sports are therefore - all the more so in winter - subject to personal responsibility. Before every ski tour or snowshoe hike, the current avalanche report should be checked - available at www.lawine.at.

Tourism associations or avalanche warning services assume no liability for the information provided.
