First on the prepared path up to the Vordere Mörsbachalm and then in hairpin bends to the Schusterboden. Keeping left, you go over the ground to the saddle and cross over to the summit. Puh!

Author’s recommendation

Still enough strength? The Lämmertörlkopf offers itself as a second worthwhile destination for the day.

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 center of town and follows the prepared forest road to the managed Vorderen Mörsbachalm. Shortly before crossing the stream, follow the summer path until you reach a forest road. There you climb up to the left in hairpin bends and cross again to the right side of the stream at about 1500 meters. Follow the flatter gully until you reach a small bottom. Continue to the next gully, which you now see directly in front of you. Climb this again in hairpin bends. Now you reach the Schusterboden. You cross southwest always in the direction of a small saddle and finally over the ridge to the Schwarzkarspitz.
