Description

A quick tour up to the summit of Ornach, 1572m. The start of this tour is from a guest-house that isn't public parking, so you may be asked to park elsewhere.

Follow the marked trail up the zig-zag path through the trees. You'll emerge on the open, south-east facing slope.

Continue up, picking a line of your choice, to get to the cross at the top.

From Ornach, you can also continue up to Jochschrofen. On a powder day the descent starts with a completely open, steep face that's great to ski.

You then return on the zig zag path you came up on.
