Description

One of the many ski-touring options up to the summit of Grünten - a classic peak in the Allgäu with great views over the town of Sonthofen towards Kleinwalsertal.

This tour starts on the north side of the mountain at the Kammerwegger Weg parking.

From the parking follow the open field straight up into the trees. You'll emerge from the trees and join a trail that zig-zags up to the ridge line, where you will see the lift and piste.

The short final ascent to the summit is steep and can be technical on a low-snow day.

From the top you can ski down to a lower peak on the west for more views or down the north face on particularly good snow days.

You will return to the same parking place and can choose from multiple lines back down.
