Ski mountaineering tips

From Summit to Summit

Skitouren Vent Brandenburgerhaus

High up in the mountains mountaineers find their paradise. All day long you can experience nature on your skis or in your snow-shoes. When the winter is over and spring time comes, when powder snow turns into corn snow and the glaring sun is reflected in the glaciers it is the best time for ski mountaineering. Accompanied by experienced ski guides you can get to numerous shelters. The downhill ride brings you straight back to your accommodation in Vent.

All huts of the Alpine Association offer rooms in the winter time (no accommodation on Similaunhütte hut and Schöne Aussicht hut - they are private).

For high-alpine ski tours we recommend a mountain guide for less experiences ski mountaineers! Glaciers can only be crossed with a rope and in a group. Before you start your tour you should tell somebody in the valley of your destination and your expected return time. Before starting a tour you should always keep informed about the present avalanche and snow situation!
