Author’s recommendation

Stuibenhütte Alpine hut is a self-catering hut with a keeper, which is open from Christmas to Easter. The hut keeper will cook your own pasta for a small fee. Beverages can be bought. This is the perfect route for fans of deep powder, when there is a lack of snow in the lower regions come up here to enjoy skiing in deep powder.


There are regular K2-Touring Ski Evenings to the “Drehmöser 9” hut in the Hausberg area. For further information visit

Turn-by-turn directions

The ascent up to Mount Osterfelderkopf is by Alpspitzbahn cable car. From the top terminal you ski down the slope to the bottom right into Bernadeintal valley until just before the Bernadein T-bar lift. At the right side of the piste there is a white sign on a tree, saying “Stuiben-Brockhütte-Reintal”. It points in the direction of your uphill route. The trail falls off slightly into the forest, before you have to put the skins on. The narrow, snowy


summer path will start off relatively flat, taking you initially in a south-easterly then in an easterly direction. Cross Below the rocky Stuibenwand face and you will reach an open strip in the forest. Turn south and climb up the open strip, which becomes wider and wider. You will soon get to open Alpine pastures and see the idyllic Stuibenhütte hut. Carry on climbing uphill across the wide slope above the hut bearing left and don’t forget to take time to enjoy the mighty high Alpine mountain views.

Once you got past the small ridge, you will reach a flat stretch below Stuibenkopf.  You will now see the summit of Mount Mauerschartenkopf. After a right turn, either bear left or right of the small rocky ridge, coming down from the summit, to reach the top.

Ski the same way back down to the base station of the Bernadein lift. Take the T-bar lift up and then ski the Hochalm/Kreuzeck piste down to the Alpspitzbahn base station.

Questions & Answers

Question about Peter Wania  · January 02, 2020 ·
Hallo - eher ein Hinweis, denn eine Frage: Die Bildunterschrift zu Bild 4 von 5 muss lauten "Blick auf die Alpspitze" (nicht Zugspitze). Bei der Gelegenheit empfehle ich die Reihenfolge der Bilder in der Art zu verändern, dass das aktuelle Bild 1 als zweites erscheint und das aktuelle Bild 2 als erstes. Viele Grüße und Ski heil, Peter
