Ski tour suggestions Hochpustertal

Dorfberg to the Golzentipp

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.

Großes Degenhorn

From Unterstalleralm on the Alpine road to the biggest Alpine village in the valley, Oberstalleralm. Pass this and on the left side of the river proceed in part via the Alpine trail to the flat terrain called ‘Beim Garten’ 2133 m, which is already above the forest boundary area. Just before this bear left, ascending the slope to the north east, continue heading up and you reach a little col via a trough. Via this trough you come to a steep flank, which then crosses a gully and takes you to the steep summit flank. There is now another col and it is a few minutes to the summit.

Tips:
conditions:                        ★★★☆☆
experience:                       ★★★★★
level of difficulty:              ★★★☆☆
Insidertip:                          The Oberstalleralm is also in winter a very beautiful photoobject.

Hochgrabe (via Außervillgraten)

Via the Alpine road, pass Volkzeinerhütte 1848 m heading to the end of the valley. Along the summer trail to the Heinkaralm, from it flat initially, then in a broad left sweep, cross the Schrentebach at a favourable point. Ascend via the slopes which follow, to the left of the Bachgraben, proceeding in a south-westerly direction via a trough until you get to flat terrain at around 2250 m. A steep gully is now well visible (40° key point of the tour), via which there is a further climb. After overcoming this, the terrain now very clearly flattens out. Continue via roughs and base areas in a south-easterly direction, until at about 2800 m the route bears left and you get to the north-east ridge via a steep section, where a steeper ridge starts (use skis when the conditions are good) and you now get to the summit.
Tips:
conditions:                        ★★★★☆
experience:                       ★★★★★
level of difficulty:              ★★★★☆
Important:                          Only for habitual ski mountaineers, attention at the 40° key point of the tour

Marchkinkele

The Marchkinkele has a few more climbs than other tours, yet like the Gruberspitze, is one of the steeper ski tours around Kalkstein, which is why both mountains should only be tackled when conditions are safe. Up to the Marchkinkele we remain in the bottom of the Marchertal valley, keeping to the right of the river and cutting across the slightly ascending north-facing slopes of the Blankenstein and Marchkinkele. At around 2000 m we change to the opposite side via the Bachgraben. Passing a derelict inn after several hairpin bends we once again come to flat terrain. There is once again a little step in the terrain, which we circumvent in a right-hand loop. The destination is a little col, in the south-east, where the summer trail also climbs to the ridge. Beneath this saddle we walk through a small base area before we reach the ridge via a few hairpin bends. Be mindful of the risk of avalanche! To begin with ascend slightly to the left of the ridge, in a south-westerly direction up to the highest point. Descent along the ascent track.

Tips:
conditions:                        ★★★☆☆
experience:                       ★★★★★
level of difficulty:             ★★★☆☆
