Description

Would you like to explore an impressive massif with a hut and a historical weather station on its summit? Then join me in this ski touring day in the Hoher Sonnblick (3105 m)This glaciated mountain is located in the Austrian Alps, on the border between Carinthia and Salzburg.

The sight of the Hoher Sonnblick inevitably catches your eye from the distance. It will certainly be a challenging and rewarding ascent! You need previous ski touring experience in alpine terrain in order to join this tour.

We will meet at the Bodenhaus or at the Lenzanger car park in the Rauriser valley. Depending on the time of the year, we will reach Kolm Saigurn after 30 or 90 minutes. We will go over flat, open terrain and continue towards Fraganter Scharte.

Then, we will follow the moraine edge towards the Rojacher Hütte (2718 m). Below the hut, we will go past the Ochsenkarkees to the next escarpment. So, after this point, we will reach the upper part of the Ochsenkarkees. Then, we will cross the Kleinfleissscharte to reach the summit! After a stop at the Zittelhaus hut, we will enjoy a wonderful descent along our ascent route.

Does this program sound good to you? Then join me and let’s enjoy a fantastic day in the Hoher Sonnblick!

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
