From the Planai cable-cars' 2nd section mountain terminal you pass by Schladmingerhütte chalet and walk through the undepass tunnel to Onkel Willy's Hütte chalet and Hotel Planaihof. A few steps further you walk by the Planai Superpark and Weitmoosalm chalet and from there further downhill along Planaistraße road to the 1st sections' mountain terminal. Especially in the afternoon this is a very sunny walk and you enjoy a great view to Untertal valley and the plateau of Rohrmoos with Hochwurzen. Just before arriving at the 1st sections' mountain terminal you undepass the ski slope again through a tunnel! From there you take the cable-car back down to the town of Schladming. Alternatively you can descend to the valley via cable-car Planai-West.

Author’s recommendation

  • With the Schladming-Dachstein Winter Hiking Ticket you have access to various cable-cars and lifts without skis and can ride up to the starting points of winter walks!

  • Perfect walk for those who want to meet friends who ski at a mountain chalet or restaurant.

Wir wollten gestern diese Wanderung machen. Beim Ticketschalter für den Lift, sagte man uns, auf der Planai sind keine präparierten Winterwanderwege. Wir sollen auf die Hochwurzen fahren. Was wir auch getan haben. Der 4 Jahreszeitenweg dort war sehr schön.
