1. Ski touring trail in Carinthia on the Heidi Alm Falkert

You can feel the natural fascination of wintry silence and glide over untracked slopes. When ski touring far away from the mass-ski tourism you will find untouched nature, snow-covered peaks and just peace.

On the first Carinthian ski touring trail on the Heidi Alm Falkert you learn the most important basics in ski touring. The path is available to all for free. It is ideal for beginners in ski touring and also offers experienced a safe tour.

The step from the piste into the terrain is not difficult, but also not without danger. Therefore, a basic knowledge of avalanche knowledge, the assessment of the terrain and in dealing with the avalanche transceiver (LVS) is a prerequisite. For those who do not enjoy self-study, you can also explore the ski touring trail with a certified ski guide from the Falkert ski school or with our freeride professional Florian Köfer (on request at www.snowlove.at). Ski touring and skins also in the rental of the ski school. Even a minimum of physical fitness and skiing skills are required.
