We’ll meet in Partenen, on the Vorarlberg side of the Silvretta Pass. We’ll check and distribute all the equipment before heading off up to the Biehlerhöhe (2035m).
We’ll head off on an easy warm up tour from the hut. In the afternoon, we’ll return to the same hut.
We’ll ascend the Jamtalspitze. Then we’ll descend on our skis over the Glacier cross and traverse to the border pass from Austria into Switzerland, down to the Chamonna Tuoi Hut. It’s a 4km, 800 m ascent. It will take us approximately 5 hours.
If conditions allow, today we’ll reach the summit of Piz Buin (3312m), by either a steep couloir or a wide open glacier. It’s a 3 km and 1100m ascent, approximately 6 hours. Use of harnesses and ropes to ascend. After the summit, there’s like a never ending glacier descent down to the Silvretta Hut (2341m) – pure fun.
Return to Austria via the Rote Furka. We’ll go up to the Klostertaler Glacier to our ski depot and then up to the Schneeglocke (3223m). It’ll be a 3km and 800m ascent, approximately 3 hours. The descent down to the dam is long, variable and a great end of the tour. Back at the Bielerhöhe, we’ll return by bus to the valley.
