SportScheck Ski Tour Route
In cooperation with SportScheck, a well-signposted ski tour route was created, which leads over 400 meters (1,312 feet) of altitude from 850 m (2,789 feet) to 1,270 m (4,166 feet) to the Kolbensattel-Lodge and provides a good overview with information and a safety check.
The "Skitourenroute am Kolben" is the first snow-covered ascent route in the Alps. It leads parallel to the ski slope in the direction of Kolbensattel-Lodge and is reserved for tourers only. In an 18 meter long tunnel, the tour operators cross the ski area on the way to the Kolbensattel-Lodge underground.
