Description

The Gailtaler Alps and the Lienz Dolomites accompany the Lesachtal in the north. With the elevations of the Dorfberg (2117 m) and the Golzentipp (2317 m) there are popular ski tour destinations everywhere and these may be combined with the easy ridge crossing, which offers plenty of views. For the descent the wide ski piste to Obertilliach is recommended with a refreshment stop afterwards in the Conny Alm restaurant. Since the starting and finish points of the ski tour are just a few kilometres from one another, a second car could be parked at the valley station for Obertilliacher Bergbahnen, if you don’t want to stop back at the starting point in Trampermanier. Our ski tour starts on the Kartitscher Sattel (1500 m). The track proceeds briefly via pastureland terrain which is bathed in sunshine heading up the mountain, before we head into the moderately steep protected forest area. Using a forest trail after about an hour we come to a steeper forest aisle which is tackled in several hairpin bends. Finishing in Alpine terrain we head for the Dorfberg, the destination for this stage (2 hours by car). The route which continues to Golzentipp is now not difficult to discern. Short descents with skins and open bindings in the wide Rasensattel are to be tackled with care. After another hour, continually heading up and down, you come to the Golzentipp and there follows a brief counter ascent to the mountain station for the ski area.
