The Hoch Tirol ski route is arguably the most impressive and most breath-taking high mountain crossing in the East Alps. More than 18,000 metres altitude and 140 kilometres are covered over six days.
A classic ski tour taking you up the mountain and after conquering the summit, back to the valley again. Yet the Hoch Tirol ski route is not a classic ski tour. On the Hoch Tirol ski route you stay the night in accommodation which is right on the mountain and in bothies located at above 2000 metres, there is even one at 2801 metres (Stüdlhütte on stage 5). The challenging ski route starts in Kasern in South Tyrol and proceeds across the summits of the Venediger mountains to the highest mountain in Austria, the Großglockner (3798m). An overwhelming sensation is guaranteed here when you arrive at the final stage, Kals am Großglockner! The feat you have just achieved, the proximity to the forces of nature around the glacier and the many summits conquered will be etched in your memory.
