Description

The Grossvenediger (3674 m) is one of the most beautiful mountains in the Austrian Alps. And this 2-day ski touring program is one of the absolute classics in the Hohe Tauern range. I invite you to join me and discover this amazing mountain!

Also, the Grossvenediger is the most important peak of the Venediger Mountain Group. It lies inside the Hohe Tauern National Park, just in the middle between East Tyrol and Salzburg. Most important, we will be rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding mountains.

Please note that you need to have previous ski touring and crampons use experience. Besides, good tolerance to heights!

On the first day, we will meet at Hopffeldboden Parking, in the Obersulzbachtal. Then, a shuttle will transfer us to the cable car towards the Kürsinger Hut. We will ascend over the Keesboden, the summer hiking trail and past the former Turkish tent. We will then continue along the winter path to Kürsinger Hütte. Our walking time depends on the conditions. It will be about 2 to 3 hours.

On the second day, we will ascend to the summit of the Grossvenediger! We will go first towards Obersulzbachkees and then further into the Venediger Scharte. Then we will find flat terrain to the top. It will take us from 4 to 6 hours. After enjoying a spectacular view from the summit, we will descend along the ascent route.

So contact me if you want to join me in this amazing 2-day ski touring experience! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program. We will spend a fantastic time out in the Grossvenediger!
