With skis on the highest mountain of Austria 3798m
The magnificent mountain world of the national park Hohe Tauern is a real paradise for ski touring enthusiasts. In addition to the Grossglockner with 3,798 m, there are another 300 peaks with more than 3.000 m to the national park. During our two-day tour with an anticyclic tour start on Sunday, we will have the power and the grandeur of this mountain world. The distinctive peak of the Großglockner is a worthwhile destination for every tour traveler, especially as the picturesque scenery and our lodging, the Stüdlhütte at 2.802 m, leave nothing to be desired. For the physical well-being the friendly hosts, who will spoil us with delicacies from the kitchen. The summit ascent on Monday makes this tour a very special experience.

After dinner, we will discuss the expedition for the summit tour the next day and let us explain the route. Ascent of 900Hm
At about 07:00 am we start over the Ködnitzkees to the Glocknerleitl, depending on the circumstances we take the ascent to the Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte (Adlersruhe) or directly to the Glocknerleitl. Depending on the snow we make our ski depot at 3.520 m to 3.640 m. With crampons safely on the cable of the mountain guide, a snow flank runs up and over the east ridge to the Kleinglockner (3.770 m). A breathtaking view into the Pallavicinirinne and on the Stüdlgrat shows us the way to the Obere Glocknerscharte (3,766 m). The last ascent to the peak leads over the rock and ice to the Großglockner 3798m. After an extensive rest stop, you descend down to the ski depot and then ski down on an intoxicating descent down to the Luckner Hut and on to the Lucknerhaus.

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.
Is lunch included?
No, please pack a snack and enough to drink. Depending on the tour destination, we might also have the opportunity to stop at a hut after the tour.
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.
Payment at the hut with debit card?
Payment with your debit card is rarely possible in mountain huts! It is therefore necessary to bring sufficient cash with you! Cable cars and hotels can usually be paid for with debit or credit card.
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!
