The perfect ski tour: Schwalbenwand
Directly from Ebengut, the trail leads across open meadows, through the forest and finally along the ridge to Schwalbenwand.
You start from Ebengut in a south-westerly direction for about one kilometre. Across the open meadows you then head WEsten until you reach a very wide cutting. At the Hinterjetzbachhütte, the ascent finally begins, which remains manageable throughout the tour, except for a steep step. Past a hay barn, through the sparse forest and across the meadows to the edge of the forest, you finally come to a very wide ridge, which you follow in a south-westerly direction. The view is already fantastic here, before you continue along the ridge to Brunnkopf and along the ridge to the destination of the tour: the Schwalbenwand summit. For the last few metres to the summit cross, we recommend – depending on the weather – taking off your skis. Caution is also advised on the ridge! You will be rewarded for this climb with a wonderful panoramic view over the Hochkönig region, Zell am See & Maria Alm. The way down is similar to the way up.
The key data:
