Valluga North Map

The classic north face starts right behind the peak. You have to keep skiers left to reach a prominent ridge which spits you out eventually into Pazieltal (boarders disadvantaged, the traverse out is a little tedious).


With a guide, they take you up with skis with Valluga II. If you are without a guide, you have to earn it & climbing up west, then along the ridge. The ascent take 30-40 minutes depending on how deep the snow.

Then take a short traverse back in to reach the north slope. The first patch of the Valluga North is exposed with a cliff below. The rumour has it that they closed the second part for non-guide accompanied skiers due to accidents. Prior to the opening of the Flexen Gondola this (and Valluga West) used to be the way to get over to Lech/Zuers.

After the first patch you have a variety of options to go through the Pazieltal.



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

Medium Exposure (E2)
