The Pleschnitzzinken ski tour starts at the GUB Galsterberg valley station directly at the start portal and after a short stretch on the piste leads into the forest, where a signposted route continues. The route continues idyllically through snow-covered trees up towards the GUB mountain station, with sections of piste and forest passages. The route then continues along the summer hiking trail to the summit of the Pleschnitzzinken. Here you are in open terrain and can put your technique to the test with a few hairpin bends up to the Pleschnitzzinken.

Ski touring on the Galsterberg is only permitted during the opening hours of the piste (8:30 to 17:00)! The Pleschnitzzinken ski tour starts at the GUB Galsterberg valley station directly at the start portal and after a short stretch on the piste leads into the forest, where a signposted route continues.

Fee for piste touring:

As you have to use part of the ski touring ascent track for the tour to the Pleschnitzzinken summit, you need our ski touring ticket. The fee is € 10,00 per person and day. You can get the ticket at the ticket machine directly at the beginning of the ascent track or at the ticket office at the GUB valley station. A touring combined season ticket for Planai, Hochwurzen, Galsterberg, Rittisberg and Fageralm is also available. Holders of a valid ski pass do not need a separate ticket. The ticket machine only accepts ATM & credit cards with NFC function as well as coins and does not give return money! The ticket must be carried on the ascent as checks are carried out on the slopes.

Downhill:

The first part of the descent is in open terrain via several variants back to the Galsterberg. From there, you can continue on the piste back down into the valley. This only applies during the opening hours of the piste from 8:30 to 17:00! It is then not permitted to ski or walk on the closed pistes.

Safety information

Outside the opening hours of the pistes (from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.), the pistes are generally closed due to the risk of serious accidents during the preparation of the pistes (winch, etc.). It is forbidden to drive on or enter the closed pistes. Climbing along the ski slope outside the operating hours is not permitted. There is a danger to life due to the preparation with the help of winches!

 

Please take the warnings seriously and use a headlamp in the evening for your own safety! Mountain sports are - even more so in winter - above all subject to personal responsibility. Tourism associations, mountain railways or avalanche warning services accept no liability whatsoever on the basis of information provided. The Planai-Hochwurzen lifts and the Schladming Tourist Association thank you for your understanding!

 

The following applies in principle: Before every ski tour or snowshoe hike, it is essential to check the current weather and avalanche report - which can be found at www.lawine-steiermark.at.

Questions and answers

Question from Paul Matt · February 02, 2021 · Community
Wenn ich den normalen Wanderweg für Aufstieg und Abfahrt benütze, kann keine Gebühr anfallen. Was ist das den für eine Abzocke !!! Parkgebühr ist okay, da dies privatparkplätze der Bahn sind. Auch Tourismusverbände und Bahnbetreibern haben zur Kenntnis zu nehmen - lt. österreich Forstgesetz: Das Betreten des Waldes ist für jederman zu erholungszwecken erlaubt! Wenn ich dort im Sommer zu Fuß ohne Berggebühr hinaufgehen kann, dann ist das auch im Winter möglich.
