Ski Tour Wildspitze
for beginners

With state-certified ski guide

Are you a beginner in ski touring and have already made your first, easier ski tours? And the Wildspitze, at 3770 metres the highest peak in Tyrol, is your dream destination? Then let's make your dream of a summit victory come true together!

Ski tour on the Wildspitze for beginners
So that you as a beginner are prepared for the ski tour on the Wildspitze, we will make a first day together a preparation tour with easier climbing passages. In addition, we practise the hairpin bend on the flat glacier approach and walking with crampons on the summit ridge. This prepares you for the ski tour to the Wildspitze on the second day prepared. The normal route via the SW ridge is moderately difficult in terms of skiing, but there is a short climbing section at grade II to overcome - no problem if secured with a rope. 

Programme Ski Tour Wildspitze

Meeting point: approx. 07:30 h Glacier Express valley station Mittelberg

First we do a material check and discuss the schedule for the next two days. Then we take the Gletscherexpress up to the Pitztal Glacier Ski Area.

Preparation tour Rechter Fernerkogel 3300 m

The Rechte Fernerkogel is the optimal preparation for the Wildspitze. Over the moderately steep terrain of the Mittelbergferner we reach the ski depot on the SW ridge. From there, secured by rope, with crampons, we climb to the summit in moderately difficult terrain (I). The easy climbing terrain is ideal for getting used to the rock and walking on winter ridges.

Altitude difference: approx. 570 hm ascent, 1670 hm descent
Difficulty: medium, 35° I

The normal route via the SW ridge is moderately difficult in terms of skiing, but there is a short climbing section at grade II to overcome - no problem if secured with a rope. The mighty descent with 2,000 metres of depth takes us over the imposing Taschachferner glacier past shimmering blue ice fractures.
