With charming Planner flair, this short but challenging ski tour leads over steep slopes to the Hintere (although this is - strictly speaking - the foremost) Gstemmerspitze. In hairpin bends it goes up to the summit, where a breathtaking panoramic view of the surrounding mountains opens up.

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

At the starting point

Turn-by-turn directions

The ski tour starts at the Seekarlift. You ascend almost directly to the north in open terrain until you reach a small flattening of the terrain. There you can see the avalanche measuring station. Please do not touch the technical equipment of this important facility! From there you continue as before, in hairpin bends up to the summit. You need to be in good shape. The meters in altitude are quite demanding and there are hardly any sections of terrain for resting on this tour. But you'll be compensated by the finish, where you'll have an unspeakably beautiful panoramic view: the Schladminger Tauern, the Dachstein massif, Totes Gebirge, Gesäuse, Rottenmanner and Wölzer Tauern make this summit experience unforgettable. And if the snow conditions are right, you'll also have a great downhill run in open terrain.
