Ski tours in Austria: dreamy ski slopes on the Heuberg

To the south of Walchsee is Tyrol's Heuberg. Ski tours over the South and east ski slopes of the Heuberg are especially popular. The view into the valley to Walchsee has a magical charm. Ski tours to the Wilder Kaiser in contrast provide impressive jagged rocks, which awaken more reverence for the untamed natural surroundings.

Tourers also get to look forward to open meadows and forests which have that winter, snow-covered look. The views above Wolfringalm inspire too. The final steps just before the summit open out into a steep ascent on the south ridge. When weather conditions are good, this can be accessed on skis with no problem at all. A ski tour with ideal slopes opens up enchanting views into the expanse and provides the requisite variety.
