Ski Mountaineering Tours
Grossarl Valley - the Mecca for ski-tour fans
If Grossarl Valley is called the “Valley of Alpine Meadows” in summer, it can certainly be described as the “Valley of Ski Tours” in winter. Far from the hectic of the ski runs, the countless summits around the communities of Grossarl and Hüttschlag invite one to undertake numerous tours of differing lengths and degrees of difficulty!
Deeply snowed slopes, glittering ice crystals and the rays of the warming sun – what could warm a tour-fan’s heart more? The Salzburg Grossarl Valley with its 12 small side valleys and the two communities of Grossarl and Hüttschlag (Hohe Tauern National Park) accommodates gigantic alpine-meadow areas and countless mountain peaks at altitudes from at least 2,000 metres to just on 3,000 metres.
The most famous skiing mountain in the valley is certainly the Kreuzkogel, the summit point of the popular Grossarl Valley-Dorfgastein Skiing Arena. The world is a great deal quieter and more modest on the surrounding mountain summits. Such as on its namesake, the “Kreuzeck”, which is one of the most popular ski-tour mountains in Hüttschlag. At just over 2,200 metres, it is as equally a popular tour destination as the Filzmooshörndl and the Loosbühel in the Grossarl Ellmau Valley throughout the winter. Late in spring one is lured by the the ski-tour mountains at the valley end, such as the Mandlkogel (2,442m) and the Keeskogel, which marks the majestic valley end as the highest mountain at 2,884m.
A popular meeting place among tour fans is the Aschaustüberl about 4km after Hüttschlag. One meets there and exchanges experiences and news and after a hearty “tour-fan soup” and snapshots that one has taken along the way on previous tours.
