Ski touring just around the corner from the hotel Lampenhäusl in the region Großglockner-Zellersee at the gate to the nationalpark Hohe Tauern.
While the others are still sleeping your alarm goes off. The on-pist-skiers can stay in bed for another hour - but not you - today it is time for a ski tour to the backcountry. It is really cold and on the first couple of meters the muscles are cold and stiff. Soon you reach the sun and an amazing day in the mountains of the Hohen Tauern is about to start.
Sounds great, don’t you think? The region around the hotel Lampenhäusl is a perfect location for all types of ski tours and backcountry trips. Friends of the on-pist-ski-touring find real good conditions on the Maiskogel and the Schmittenhöhe. Every Wednesday afternoon after 4:00 pm the Maiskogel is opened for ski touring. You can hike up during the afternoon and ski down until late at night. The huts are opened and offer special ski-touring-deals. The ski touring in our region already starts in fall, when the glacier Kitzsteinhorn opens. If you are in good shape you can hike more than 2.000 meters elevation in one piece, go for the Kitzsteinhorn.
The best powder runs you will find on the grass-mountains in the surrounding area. In the main season our region is well known for its great snow and there are quite a couple of good runs waiting for you. The descents from the Imbachhorn, the Kreuzköpfl or the Schwarzkopf are not the most easy ones - but some of the most amazing ones - esperts will be very happy.
When spring is around the corner it is time for the classic ski tours in the Hohen Tauern. Spring-time is time for firn-snow-runs. Stubacher Sonnblick and Granatspitze are the “easiest” 3.000 meter summits of the region - thanks to the gondola of the skiresort Weisssee. More power and endurance is necessary for the Hocharn, the Rauriser Sonnblick or the Großvenediger. The best known spring-ski-tour of the region is the Kloben just around the corner from Fusch and the hotel Lampenhäusl.
If you are interested in really amazing and unforgettable skitours in our region Großglockner-Zellersee and you look for a lovely and uncomplicated hotel - come to the hotel Lampenhäusl. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Ski touring peak season
It is really cold, the sun shines softly and has not enough power to warm up the snow during the day. The snow is pure powder and "raises dust" all day long ... that's how peak season ski tours should feel in our region.
Ski touring in spring
It is time to start early. The alarm goes off at about 4:30 a.m. That is important, only the "early birds" will reach the best conditions out there. At the ascent, the snow has a hard snow-crust, but if you find the perfect time for your descent, the firn-conditions will blow your mind.
On piste ski touring
No matter what time of winter it is - it is always time for on-piste ski tours. Whether you want to get in shape in high elevation or if you want to get in shape as a beginner. On-piste ski tours are a trend and we have amazing conditions in our winter sport region.
