A classic ski tour that takes you high above the Planneralm. Wide slopes and magnificent views are guaranteed. For many, the Karlspitz is also the destination of this tour.  Another plus point - you can also do it in spring. The altitude of the Planneralm makes it possible.

 

 

Author’s recommendation

At the Goldbachscharte you can still take the short, steep climb to the Jochspitze. If the conditions are right, you will experience a great descent there!

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.

Turn-by-turn directions

You start this ski tour at Kinderland and follow the markings to the southwest, past the Kothüttensee on the pronounced ridge and on or next to it to the Karlspitze with summit cross.
