On this moderately difficult ski tour you conquer the dominant mountain of the highest ski village in Styria. Past snow-covered mountain lakes, the route takes you via Karlspitz and Karlscharte along hilly terrain up to 2,126 m, where the summit cross of the striking Schoberspitze is enthroned.

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

On this ski tour you start at the Kinderland and follow the markings, first flat, then a short piece steeper before it goes over the mountain pine field again flatter towards the south. Now you are on the high plateau and already have the striking mountain shape of the Schoberspitze in view. Enjoy this section before you continue uphill to the ridge. Once you are there, turn west towards the now already visible summit cross of the Karlspitze. Once you reach the summit, you descend to the Karlscharte. Then the skins come back up and you climb the last 150 meters to the summit of the Schoberspitze. All around you now see a magnificent mountain panorama. Be it the nearby mountains of the Planneralm or those in Donnersbachwald. You also have a clear view of the mighty Grimming and the Schladminger Tauern to the Tote Gebirge. Resting is now the order of the day before you start your descent.The descent follows the same route as the ascent.
