4 distinctive peaks on the alpine main ridge
Experience an impressive ski tour crossing through the harsh winter landscape in the High Alps Nature Park. This mountain region in the eastern alps belongs to one those little developed regions in winter, with lonely high peaks, wildly rugged glaciers, and steep ridges. The winter rooms along the route are very well equipped and will serve as high camps during this demanding ski tour crossing.

What should I bring?
Backpack, own avalanche transceiver equipment if available (is included), ski touring skis and poles, helmet (as required), snack, drink, sun protection, change of clothes. Please also check prior to your tour whether your insurance includes mountain rescue off-piste. You will receive a packing list when you make your booking.
Do I get a discount if I bring my own equipment?
You are of course welcome to use your own equipment. Unfortunately, we cannot grant a discount as we generally provide the necessary safety equipment free of charge.
What is a hut sleeping bag and what do I need it for?
A hut sleeping bag is either made of silk or cotton and is compulsory on every hut for hygienic reasons, as the duvets, pillowcases and mattress protectors cannot be washed every day. The hut sleeping bag protects you from direct contact with the blankets. We recommend a small silk hut sleeping bag with a small pack size and lighter weight.
The weather forecast announces bad weather, when will a tour be cancelled / postponed?
Unfortunately, weather forecasts for the mountains are not always as accurate as one might imagine and some weather portals are simply unsuitable for forecasts in the mountains. A reliable forecast is only possible for the following three to five days. Although the 16-day forecasts in particular are popular, the significance is extremely limited. If the conditions are clearly bad and we have to cancel the tour for safety reasons, we will either arrange an alternative date together or you will get your deposit back.
What rental equipment is included in the price?
You will find the rental equipment included in the tour description under "Services & Additional Costs". Rental equipment is included in all our guided tours. We also have equipment hire - if you are out on your own but have forgotten your crampons, you can get them from us.
How do I know what equipment I need for my tour?
You will receive a packing list from us. This will help you to find out what you need for your booked tour!
