30HSOA-#3 #15 Weisskugel & Langtauferer Spitze Map

That was the longest day on the skis of this project. You start by going up a flat and inifinite glacier from the Hochjoch-Hospiz. After some hours you finally see the East face and the summit of the Weisskugel, what a beauty ! But the way is still long and need a good physical condition. After we skied the Weisskugel east face we went to the Langtauferer spitze !by crossing the south slopes, better be there early if it is a warm day. This second summit is also worth it. It offers you a nice way down and avoid a part of the flat glacier.


Then to get out of the valley, it is important to be not too late because the last part in the Rofenache is exposed to wet avalanches due to the south slopes on the top of it. Take care here !



Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.

Low Exposure (E1)

1 out of 4

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.
