Recommendations for the next Hochkönig mountain tour
Beginners get good training in terms of touring technique, avalanche knowledge and companion aid before starting the tour. Which of the ski tours in Maria Alm do you want to tackle today? Here are three of our favourites.
Once the daily skiing operations draw to a close, Maria Alm’s slopes open up an amazing dusk tour. Ascend from the Aberg cable car parking ground along the slopes no. 10, no. 22 and no. 23 via Wastlalm to Abergalm. If you bring more endurance and proper conditioning to the table, the final part to the Karlift mountain station is a bit steeper.
Length: approx. 3,65 km
Ascent: 773 altitude metres
Duration: approx. 3 hours
This ski tour is short but intense as the route from Hintermoos ski centre to the Statzerhaus on the Hundstein is constantly ascending with some tricky sharp turns. We recommend using climbing skins from the summer hiking trail onward in order to master the ridgeway without any problems. View and scenery are more than worth it for the effort.
Length: approx. 2.75 km
Ascent: 273 altitude metres
Duration: approx. 1.5 hours
How about a Maria Alm ski touring insiders’ tip to cap things off? Mooshamalm is widely unfamiliar to most ski mountaineers. Ascend onto Langegg via Abergbahn and, after a brief downhill part, tackle the ascent onto Hundstein. The gallery forest opens up to reveal a panoramic view of your destination – before you take the long slope back to the ski bus stop Hintermoos.
Length: approx. 9 km
Ascent: 388 altitude metres
Duration: approx. 2.5 hours
There are certainly numerous more ski tours to be explored and conquered throughout the Hochkönig region, in Maria Alm, Dienten and Mühlbach, but also in the surrounding villages. Your hosts will gladly provide you with further suggestions.
