Ski Touring in the Fuschlseeregion

Ski touring has recently become very popular but the dangers are often under-estimated. For this reason a Club has been founded in Faistenau with this theme in mind.

Responsible ski tourers plan detailed tours in advance and check on information about weather conditions and risk of avalanches in the area. Detailed tour planning, avalanche risk analysis and the appropriate procedure of the tour is always the sole responsibility of the ski tourer.

On the Loibersbacher Höhe in Faistenau you will find the test ski tour training trail – Salzkammergut where you can learn and train for this sport of ski touring. Furthermore here you can find information about actual dangerous situations, equipment and route maps. Many information boards and guidance in the resort offer clear descriptive information for your tour which will assist you to enjoy this sport with the minimum of risk.

The Holiday Region Fuschlsee offers perfect possibilities for great ski tours. Many suggestions are to be found in our “Winter World Map” which is available online and for downloading.

This area has a particularly lovely landscape and you will be visually informed as to how to react in the event of an avalanche. Detours and turning point possibilities make every tour flexible according to weather conditions, avalanche warnings and the condition and experience of the skier. (Time of tour approx. 2 hrs) Along the route there are also information boards with details of snow, avalanches, nature preservation, hunting and respect for wild animals. Mountain huts en route: SchafbachalmGrögneralm (also exit point) and Schlittenhütte. In principle you can also walk this trail and guided hikes can be organised.
