Turn-by-turn directions

The ski tour starts at the Tauplitzalm parking lot at the end of the toll Tauplitzalm Alpine road.

First past the Hollhaus and across the alpine plateau in an easterly direction. Shortly before the Steirersee there is the first short descent towards the Steirerseehütten.

Passing the huts on the left, you climb uphill along the foothills of the Sturzhahn, always following the winter markings. Under the rock walls you go up to the Traglhals. At the Traglhals keep sharp left and continue to the summit of the Großer Tragl. You will be rewarded for the ascent with a wonderful panoramic view.

The descent follows the ascent route.

 

Please be sure to follow the doline markings!
