Oetztal to Pitztal Map

Start at the viewing platform off the Tiefenbachferner Gondola. Rappel down, or climb if you are comfortable, the rope is not strictly necessary. From here first straight, then right over to Hangender Ferner. Ski all the way over to Braunschweiger Huette and pass it on the right side (flat/short uphill). From here straight down until you hit the emergency road from Pitztal Glacier, cross it to ski down until you hit the creek bed, turn right and re-merge with the emergency road to reach the base station.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.
