Join me in this challenging 2-day ski tour and let’s reach the summit of the Grossglockner (3798 m), the highest mountain in Austria! Also, it’s a real highlight in the Hohen Tauern range, in the Central Eastern Alps.

We will spend 2 unforgettable days in this exciting ascent. You need to have some rock climbing and crampons use experience to join this tour!

We will meet at Lucknerhaus, in Kals. Then, we will go up together to the Stüdlhütte. The climb to the hut will take us between 2 and 3 hours, depending on the conditions.

On the second day, we will start our ascent to the summit! It will take us about 3 hours to the Archduke Johannshütte. Depending on your experience, we may continue with our skis in the direction of Glocknerleitl or leave them at the ski depot. 

Then, we will begin an exciting climb, partly exposed. We will climb over the Kleinglockner to the Grossglockner summit. It will take us about 2 hours. So, after the summit, with spectacular views, we will descend along the ascent route. You can check the complete itinerary below this text.

So contact me if you want to join me in this challenging ascent to the Grossglockner! I will be happy to guide you! Make sure you also check out my Kitzsteinhorn ski touring day!

About the Guide


The mountains have always been a great part of my life. I was a youth leader of the Alpine Association of Zell am See, Bergrettungsmann, and completed the training as a ski and snowboard instructor. I studied meteorology because it can be very useful in mountaineering. My first trips took me to the Eastern Alps, around Piz Bernina and Biancogray. I also had the chance many times the amazing Mont Blanc range and the peaks around Chamonix. Finally, I got to practice in the high mountains of Bolivia and Chile.
I have really found my calling as a mountain guide. I am right where I always wanted to be. The smile on my clients' faces at the summit or after an intense ski day is so rewarding!
I am part of a team of local guides (Bergführer Zell am See Kaprun), all friends of mine, guys with whom I share the passion for the mountains. They are Markus B, Markus H and Gerald, all IFMGA certified guides. Our philosophy is "to know how to do something well is to enjoy it". Therefore, we always keep learning to give you the best experience.
