The slope tour to the Kolbensattel has become known as the first ski tour in Germany with a snow covered slope. A separate snow-covered upwards trail has been established at the edge of the slope for hikers.

A separate upwards trail has been created at the edge of the slope to avoid conflicts and risks between hikers and skiers. A special tunnel has been built at one spot where the upwards trail crosses the slope.
The probability of snowfall means that snow is guaranteed. There is no risk of avalanche on the designated upwards trail. Descent is via the ski slope.
The climb ends at the level of the Kolbensattel Hut. There is the possibility of ascending as far as the Zahn across open country.

Author’s recommendation

Vor der Abfahrt unbedingt auf der Kolbensattelhütte vorbeischauen. Hier können Sie in der Umkleide Ihre Kleidung wechseln und sich mit warmen Getränken und bayerischen Schmankerln für die bevorstehende Abfahrt stärken.

Unter Woche werden auch Tourenabende angeboten!

Nette Skitour auf der wenig befahrenen, breiten Piste. Geht auch bei wenig Schnee wie zur Zeit.
