A beautiful ski tour with ascent from the Tauplitzalm over the Steirerseehütten to the Große Tragl. The descent to the Ödernalm is just great. Then ascent again to the Tauplitzalm.

Author’s recommendation

After the ski tour you can reward yourself with a stop at one of the huts or hotels!

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.

 

Now keep left uphill over the so-called "Steirerseeleiten" and along the eastern walls of Sturzhahn, Kleinen and Großen Tragl. Following the winter markings, up to the Traglhals, where you keep left to reach the summit of the Großer Tragl.

 

Downhill - variant easy: along the ascent path to the Steirerseehütten and climb back up to the Tauplitzalm.

Downhill - variant difficult: ghost forest descent to the Ödernalm and return ascent to the Tauplitzalm.

 

From the summit of the Großer Tragl northward into a saddle, now westward into the trench of the "Haberboden" down to about 1900 meters (do not descend further!).

Keep as high as possible to the left along the rock faces, depending on the snow conditions, climb 30 to 50 meters in altitude (possibly briefly swell again) to the Grasslrücken! Very steep entry into the Langkar, and in an impressive drive along the northern rock faces of Sturzhahn and Traweng to the "Geisterwald"(large boulders).

 

At the alpine huts of the Ödernalm begins the climb back to the Tauplitzalm.
