At the end of the Mörsbach valley it is waiting for you, the popular and well-known ski touring mountain in the Donnersbachwald. So then, nothing like up!

The bear-strong classic! At the beginning to warm up on the prepared path up to the Vordere and further to the Hintere Mörsbachalm and then - yay - off into the open terrain. Over alpine soils and slopes up to summit happiness & panoramic view.

Author’s recommendation

The summit plateau offers itself as a sunny resting place. You can stop at the Mörsbachwirt on the Vordere Mörsbachalm or at the inns in the valley.

Safety information

Mountain sports and the assessment of the situation on site are - even more so in winter - primarily subject to personal responsibility. Tourism associations or avalanche warning services do not assume any liability based on the information provided.
  • Check the weather and avalanche situation at www.lawine-steiermark.at before each ski tour.   
  • The use of the tour description is at your own risk and responsibility.    
  • Do not go on a ski tour alone. It's more fun together anyway!   
  • Always behave risk-conscious and react to danger signs!   
  • Respect existing regulations, such as hunting and game protection areas, reforestation or young growth areas.   
  • You should always have your cell phone well charged. Do you have the emergency numbers saved? Mountain rescue: 140. If you have no reception, take out the sim card and dial 112.

Destination

Center of the village

Turn-by-turn directions

The ski tour starts at the parking lot in the village center and follows the prepared forest road to the managed Vorderen Mörsbachalm. From there, then crossing the stream and slightly ascending further to the Hintere Mörsbachalm at 1482m. The now following steeper ascent, called "Guglhupf" by the locals, brings you into a wide cirque, which you do not follow completely. You turn to the east before and climb steeply on a pronounced ridge. Here it can be dangerous for avalanches. From this ridge you climb slightly to the summit of the Großen Bärneck (2071 m) with the beautiful summit cross. A magnificent panorama of the surrounding mountains opens up here.

For the descent you turn after the summit cross a short distance to the west and ski, but only in safe conditions, steeply down into the cirque and then follow the ascent track. If conditions are not safe, you can ski back down from the summit along the ascent track.
