Plenderlesseekopf ridge north descent Map

From the mountain station of the Dreiseenbahn keep directly left towards the ridge of the Plenderlesseekopf. Across the flank very steeply up to the ridge (approx. 2500m). On the ridge without difficulty along a few boulders towards west to a small head (approx. 5 min).


From here, descend through a very steep slope to the north in the direction of Mittl. Plenderlessee. This slope requires absolutely safe conditions.

Pass the frozen lake and head towards a rocky ridge (approx. 2300m) which can be easily skied in many places.

Then continue in the fall line through the gully-like terrain of the Wisberg to the Kühtaistraße (depending on the snow conditions, the route may be blown off in places).

Return along the road to the new Gaiskogelbahn (approx. 10 min).

It is also possible to ski the rock ridge at 2300m in the direction of Hirschebensee (2164m) through the large opening and thus reach a rarely tracked area. Then follow the valley to the bus stop 'Kühtai Galerie' (approx. 1900m) and take the bus back to the ski area.



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

Medium Exposure (E2)
