Burgstall Rinne Map

Ride the Zirmachbahn chairlift and from the top (2240 metres), make a 500 metre descending traverse, holding as much height as possible, to reach the large bowl to the north of the Hoher Burgstall peak. Put skins on and climb up the bowl, heading for the narrow couloir just looker's right of the Hoher Burgstall peak. The final 100 metres of the ascent (in the couloir itself) is narrow and quite steep (35 degrees+) so you may need to bootpack. The whole ascent takers around an hour and deposits you on a lovely little col with a view down the Stubai Valley. From the col, strip your skins off and enjoy the ride down! Carry on down past where you put skins on a final few hundred metres of nice mellow tree skiing will lead you to the Burgstall Abfahrt piste.
