Dates Tuesday, 31 December until end of March Length: 10am until 1pm approx.
Guided ski tour for beginners
Look up at those deep blue skies – perfect weather for a ski tour. Today, you are planning to tackle the Brunnach route. You shoulder your skis and take the bus to the valley station of the Brunnach National Park cable car line. You strap on your skins and off you go – a few metres along the piste and then following the marked route in the direction of the Schafalpe. For over an hour, you can bask in the sense of being surrounded by nothing but untouched nature. “The route up to the mountain station is breath-taking”, says your tour guide and
you have to agree with him. Such moments of intoxicating beauty are rare in life. And when you wedel down the freshly prepared piste back down to the valley a short while later, you know: this was only your first time, not your last. Registration until 5pm the day before at the Tourism Office Bad Kleinkirchheim Tel. +43 (0) 4240/82 12 Bring your own equipment or rent skis, boots, poles and skins for € 29 per day or € 19 per day as part of the taster ski tour.
