Mountaineers can expect a lot of beautiful scenery and even more downhill runs. 30 kilometers of ski tour, 3,000 meters of descent and the highest mountain in Upper Austria and Styria in one fell swoop.
Starting at the mountain station, on this tour you cross the glacier to the Gjaidalm and from there climb up to the Oberfeld. Between Niederem and Hohem Rumpler you go south-west to the Mitterstein chairlift valley station and back to the Hunerkogel. Attention, there are only a few pole markings, good sense of direction and GPS necessary. Beware of crevasses and sinkholes.
Attention: The lifts on the Dachstein Glacier are no longer in operation. Therefore, all altitude metres have to be mastered under your own power. GPS track has been adapted.

To go on a tour without proper preparation and equipment is reckless. Not only your own life is easily risked, but also that of your fellow mountaineers in the same region.
Must-haves: avalanche transceiver, mobile phone, shovel, avalanche probe, first aid kit, sufficient food and drinks, possibly additional clothing to change.
On the day of the tour: Read the avalanche situation report and weather forecast and check what effects it will have on your planned ski tour: possibly adjust or cancel the ski tour. Are all participants fit and healthy enough to go on the tour? If not, change or cancel the ski tour.
