Ski tour to the Aukopf

Known as the “Valley of Mountain Huts” in summer, Grossarltal may fairly be called the “Valley of Ski Tours” in winter. Away from the busy pistes, countless remote mountaintops also await you in and around the towns of Grossarl and Hüttschlag. Numerous tours of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty invite you to enjoy the snowy hillsides, glistening ice crystals and warming rays of radiant sunshine. What more could a ski tourer ever wish for?

NEW: The Loosbühelalm opens in winter (days off: Monday and Tuesday).
Descent from the Penkkopf

Grossarl and Hüttschlag are both home to gigantic areas of alpine pastures along with countless peaks, ranging in elevation from 2,000 to 2,884 m above sea level. Probably the valley’s most famous ski mountain is the Kreuzkogel, while the surrounding mountains are significantly quieter and more peaceful. This includes the "Kreuzeck", one of the most popular ski-touring mountains in Hüttschlag. Barely over 2,20o meters in elevation, it is a popular touring destination all winter long, as are the Filzmooshörndl and Loosbühel in Grossarl’s Ellmautal valley. Later in springtime, the ski-touring peaks at the valley head have a real appeal, including the Mandlkogel (2,439 m) and Keeskogel, the valley’s tallest mountain, which dominates the majestic valley head with its 2,884 meters.

All the ski-touring equipment you need can be rented out from sports shops in Grossarl.

Ski-Touring Rules

To guarantee your safety during ski tours, please always obey the following rules:


  • Plan your tours based on avalanche and weather reports.
  • NEVER go into the backcountry (even when avalanche risk is low) without required equipment (transponder, shove, probe, charged mobile phone). This rule applies to all group members.
  • Check your avalanche transponder before every tour to insure it is working correctly.
  • Never ascend steep hillsides closely bunched (leave 10 m between each member of the skiing party).
  • Always cross steep mountainsides alone; with inclines of up to 35 degrees, leave at least 30 m between each tourer.
  • When the avalanche risk level is 3 or higher, avoid slopes with more than a 35-degree incline.
  • Choose an appropriate time of day.
Guided Ski Tours
Every week, BERG-GESUND offers sampler ski tours as well as easy-to-moderate ski tours. Aside from enjoying a marvelous ski tour, you will also learn how to use your shovel, probe and transponder correctly.

Guided ski tours are free for guests of BERG-GESUND member businesses.  You will always be accompanied by state-certified ski and touring guides. Tours take place even if just 1 person has signed up.
