Destination

Parking lot on the Tauplitzalm

Turn-by-turn directions

The ski tour starts at the Tauplitzalm parking lot at the end of the toll Tauplitzalm Alpine road.

First past the Hollhaus and across the alpine plateau in an easterly direction. Shortly before the Steirersee there is the first short descent towards the Steirerseehütten and the Steirersee. Continue in the direction of Schwarzensee. Passing the huts in the Leistalm, the route continues towards Kamphütten, keeping to the right over the less steep ridge to the summit of the Rosskogel.

 

In good conditions, the steeper slopes further west of the summit can be skied. Fantastic foothills through the larch forest down to the Schwarzensee.

 

From here, the same path leads back to the parking lot.
