Ski touring evenings in Jochberg

The village of Jochberg offers ski touring evenings every Friday. Ski tourers can follow the piste up from the valley lift station of the Wagstättbahn gondola to the Wurzhöhe or the Jagawurz. Both of these mountain huts are open all winter long. The last run down into the valley is at 9.45pm, after which the piste bashers start to prepare the slopes using winches ready for the next day.

Difficulty: intermediate / red piste

During winter, the Asten piste is open to ski tourers until 10pm every day. This means you can have fun tackling one of the region’s most popular descents, the Hahnenkamm, in the evening too.

Ski tourers can walk up the Asten Run (no. 20) on Kitzbühel’s local mountain every evening. At this time, the snow groomers are normally already working hard to prepare the slopes for the next day but they take extra care to be considerate of ski tourers. This gives tourers a special window and opportunity for risk-free ski touring close to the town centre.

The chance to tour up and then ski down a perfectly prepared piste is a luxury that most people grab with both hands. On the Bichlalm, everyone can enjoy this free and exclusive ski touring experience. You should, however, be aware that this tour is always done at your own risk! The area below the Stuckkogel is a true paradise for all ski tourers, even as the evening draws in. Although the marked slopes are officially closed after a long day of skiing, winches are NOT used to prepare the pistes.
