Anna and Stefan – through the mountains on two boards
The hotel owners, Stefan and Anna Unterkofler, are often on theirs skis in winter in an effort to meet and explore the world. From ski touring on the Kitzsteinhorn, in the Hohe Tauern range, or on the Schmitten: they have already explored many tours, overcome many challenges, and thus know exactly where the most beautiful tours are. And that's what they want to share with you: the best tours around the Kaprunerhof and what you should not miss.
This ski tour is best suited for those who already have experience in alpine environments, as the ski tour on the Schwalbenwand is particularly challenging. A small tip: make sure you are ready to go before you start the tour.
One day per week, skiers switch places with ski tourers. Every Wednesday, the slopes are completely open to ski tourers! And for extra strength there is a tasty surprise waiting for you after the tour.
For some years, the ski touring route on the Ronachkopf was completely impassable. But now it has been reopened! This relaxing tour goes directly to the Enzianhütte alpine hut, where you'll experience true Austrian hospitality.
