Description

I invite you to join me in an amazing 2-day ski touring trip to the Grossvenediger (3657 m), the highest summit of Salzburg! Also, it's one of the most amazing glaciated summits in the Austrian Alps.

The Grossvenediger lies in the High Tauern range, on the border between Tyrol and Salzburg. It’s the Venediger Group’s main peak.

If the road is in good conditions, we will get a taxi to the valley. Then, we will have to walk for about 2.30 hours to the Kürsinger Hut. Otherwise, if we can't get a taxi, we will have a walking time of about 7 hours. In this case, the price will be adjusted.

So, on the second day, I will guide you up up to the Grossvenediger summit! We will enjoy a fantastic panorama view from the top. Then, get ready to experience an amazing descent on the fantastic slopes of this mountain.

This tour is also available as a 1-day trip. Also, depending on the season and road conditions, walking times may vary from 3 to 7 hours. You can check the detailed itinerary below this description.

Please be aware that you need to have ski experience in different types of snow. Besides, you need to be in very good shape.

Want to join me in this amazing ski touring trip? Then contact me for more information! We will spend a great time in the Grossvenediger.

I also offer a great ski tour to the Wildspitze summit, the highest mountain in North Tyrol (3770 m). Check it out!

Itinerary

Day 1: Kürsinger Hut

If the road is still not in good conditions as to drive by taxi, we will have a walking time of about 7 hours to the Kürsinger Hut. If we can go by taxi to the valley, the walking time to the cottage will be about 2.5 hours.

*If this is the case, the price will be adjusted accordingly.

Day 2: Grossvenediger summit

After a short ascent we will go down to the Obersulzbachkees glacier. From here, we will climb with a rope to the relatively flat but wide glacier to the highest point of Salzburg. We will enjoy a spectacular panorama view and begin our descent.

Mountain Guide

I am a IFMGA certified mountain guide and a climbing lover. I grew up in a small farm in Mittersiller Sonnberg. My parents used to show us the beauty of our mountains. When I was 10 years old I went ski touring for the first time and I really loved it. The next years, I started climbing walls which really fascinated me. I also participated in many competitions.

My career took me to Hohe Tauern National Park where I finished the ranger training to bring visitors to the beauties of my country.

In 2013, I got my official certificate as a mountain guide and ski instructor. A dream came true! Since 2014, I have been working a full time guide, guiding in different areas such as Ortler, Valais, Dolomites, Wilder Kaiser, Muztagh Ata (China)... and of course, in some of our famous mountains such as Großvenediger and Großglockner.

Feel free to get in touch with me! I'll be glad to share with you a great moment in the mountains!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
