Description

Join me in this ski touring trip in the Sonnspitze mountain (2062 m), in the land of Tyrol, Austria. This mountain is in the Kitzbühel Alps.

It's a very popular hiking tour in the Auracher Graben. It's also great for ski touring. Indeed, it offers a steep departure from the summit, all in safe conditions.

One great thing about this itinerary is that it's apt for ski touring beginners as well as for experts. The altitude change during the program is 1044 m.

We follow the Wildalmgraben in the valley on the toboggan run to the sign "Gebra" and climb along the track on the left over relatively steep alpine terrain. We first go over the Niederwildalm up to the Hochwildalm hut, (1557 m). To the right, slightly below the hut along the signpost, a few meters of altitude loss before we cross the steep NW slope below Schotting. In a large arc through the very clear forest into the open ground below the summit. The summit ascends from the south over the crest to the highest point.

Some nearby resorts are Kitzbühel, Fieberbrunn and Saalbach-Hinterglemm. If you are in one of them during your ski trip, this 1-day option is great!

Did you find this proposal interesting? Then please contact me so we can leave together during the winter! Another great program that you can check out is Guided off piste skiing in Sankt Anton.

Georg is an extremely knowledgable ski guide who is qualified as both a mountain guide and a top level ski instructor so perfect for getting you going in the off piste or taking the more experienced to a new level. He also speaks perfect English.

My guide ended up being a local snowboard guide named Peter. It was excellent. Lovely guy, we got to ride some powder as well as practice searching with the avalanche rescue equipment. All round good day. Would highly recommend

We had a wonderful day skiing down to Fiberbrunn with our guide Mathias Leo. He found deep light powder snow. The snow was unexpectedly good considering it had not snowed for many weeks! It is only guides with the best knowledge that can find good conditions long after the last snow fall. The smiles remained on our faces the whole day :) Henrik

Really enjoyed a day of off piste with Mathias. We were lift-serviced with some short hikes and traverses and found plenty of fresh powder! If you are honest about what you want, and your group's abilities, then Mathias will create an experience that works!

I found Explore Share an excellent service in locating me a local alpine guide, who in turn tailored for me a brilliant 4 days mountaineering in Austria. Many thanks to Lupe for all her assistance in organising my guide and Mathias for his expert & personable guidance in the Austrian Alps.

Mathias took us on a slightly different trip more catered to rock climbing. It was exactly what we were looking for! We did a one day multi pitch climbing course and then a one day mountain ascent. I'd highly recommend Mathias if you're looking for an adventure in Austria.

Great experience! My only suggestion would be to specify better the equipment needed (e.g. when booking on the website it was mentioned "the guide has all needed safety equipment", but after booking the guide then specified you needed to provide your own skins for the crosscountry walking etc., which was news to us). The rest was perfect!

Super day! we skied untracked snow all day. Mathias managed to plan the trip just up to our skill level. And that’s is what you get from a good guide, he have to quickly find the right level for the group. Made the day wery exiting but safe. We did a lot of steep skiing and some steep booting but felt safe all day. We used skins to get the best areas, and some booting with ski on backpack. Recommended to get to the best areas! Our best reviews for Mathias!

Extremely exciting trip with good learning all the way from the experienced guide. First time on the top of a mountain. Certainly not the last time with explore-share, and the guide Mathias Leo. Thanks!

This was our first time climbing in the alps, only did lower peaks in Sweden before. Mathias did a great job, everything felt extremely safe, and we still managed to do it in good time. We'll definitely be calling him for next year's trip!

My two days of rock climbing with Mathias were amazing! I am not a very good rock climber, but Mathias was very patient, always super helpful and encouraged me to get better and better. He took me to great spots for climbing routes that were doable but not easy for me and I felt very safe at every moment. He is also just a super nice and patient guy and I would go climbing with him again anytime!

I would like to drop a note saying how amazing of a time I had climbing with Mathias. Coming from the United States all I asked was for a true Austrian Alps climbing experience. The first day we spent multi-pitch sport climbing up to grade UIAA 6+. Such and amazing day on bullet proof limestone.  The second day I got to experience alpine climbing that started with a two hour hike up a hanging glaciated valley to one of the classic routes.  I highly recommend arranging a climbing trip with Mathias. I will guarantee you will be exhausted at the end of each day with a huge smile on your face.  It was truly an experience of a life time and next time I am in Austria I will be booking another adventure with this group.

Quelques jours de vacances organisés à la dernière minute grâce à Explore-Share. Direction l’Autriche avec Matthias pour l’ascension du Grossglockner et au bout un très beau souvenir. Ne vous fiez pas a sa jeunesse et son air désinvolte, Matthias est un vrai pro par ses connaissances et son expérience. Toujours souriant, attentif et attentionné, la confiance qui s’est installée nous a permis de grimper en toute sécurité et sans stress et quand le sommet tardait à arriver il savait remotiver son équipe. Il n a qu’un seul défaut : il n aime pas le fromage!! ;) Bref de parfaites vacances sportives. Arielle (France)
