Ski tours Silvretta with Piz Buin

With state-certified ski guide

The Wiesbadener Hütte in the Silvretta is the ideal starting point for ski tours to the surrounding peaks. Easy to reach from the Bielerhöhe, it is our base for a ski touring weekend in the Silvretta. 

Guided ski tours Silvretta with Piz Buin

Numerous ski touring peaks in the Silvretta can be optimally reached from the Wiesbadener Hütte. The tours are quite demanding. Time and again, rock passages up to the II degree of difficulty have to be mastered. The highlight of the ski tour weekend will be the Ski tour on the Piz Buin an. At 3312 m, the Great Piz Buin is the highest peak in Vorarlberg. The Piz Buin ski tour is one of the most beautiful ski tours in Austria.

Ski Tour Great Piz Buin, 3312 m

Classic high-altitude ski tour to the highest peak in Vorarlberg. First we climb through the Ochsental valley up to the rugged Ochsental glacier, which still impresses us with its ice towers. We continue across the glacier to the Buinlücke, 3054 m. Here we take a ski depot. Then we climb the 300-metre-high summit. Here we have to overcome a key passage of level II difficulty - secured by the ski guide's rope, no problem. Soon we reach the highest point and enjoy the view far into neighbouring Switzerland. Then we descend through the Ochsental valley to the reservoir.
