The supporters of this sport appreciate the experience of nature, the original, about ski tours. There are many of these unspoilt landscapes in the Brandnertal, where tourers can concentrate on themselves and their sport. We have compiled a few of them for you as examples.
The so-called Schattenlagant Alp area is a popular side valley in Brand, even in winter.
In addition to tobogganing and winter hiking, it is also possible to reach the Schattenlagandhütte by ski touring. The start of this tour variant can be reached directly at the end of Brand (approx. 300m after the Palüdbahn). Please note the possible oncoming traffic with various snow machines. For more information on opening times and snow conditions, call T +43 676 95 62 502 (Schattenlagant hut). Please note that the entire area may be closed due to the risk of avalanches.
The absolute highlight among ski tours is the ski tour to the highest peak of the Rätikon. The very long, conditionally demanding tour with several steep sections is rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view from the summit.
Continue from the Innertal to the valley station of the Lünerseebahn to the end of the valley and follow the right gully to the height of the summer path. Usually without skis, it goes over the Bösen Tritt and over the subsequent, steep flank to the Lünersee. The further ascent takes place via the western Lünersee accompanying path. If the conditions are good, you can start crossing the flank from the middle of the Lünersee. You go slightly uphill into a hollow that leads to the Totalp hut. After the Totalp hut on the left ridge to the Schesaplana border ridge. Follow this, later it goes right into the ravine and steeply to the summit ridge just to the left of the highest elevation. The last few meters are mostly on foot to the summit cross. The descent is the same as the ascent.
From the piste it’s about 270 m ascent to the valley floor of the lower Zalimalpe. Then follow the supply road on the left side of the valley to the crossroads at the entrance to the Zalim valley. Here you continue on the left supply road into the valley. After the wooded, lowest section in the wide valley floor, it goes up. At the end of the valley you drive over an increasingly steep trough to just below the height of the Oberzalimhütte and then, ascending gently, cross to the right. From the hut, which is not serviced in winter, continue to the right and on the right side of a mountain pine-covered ridge to the small shoulder. Now traverse to the left into the steep trough and climb up this until you reach the ridge to the right of the summit structure. The ski depot is located under the ridge rocks. Now follow the ridge – avoiding a rocky rise on the left side – to the summit. The descent is the same as the ascent.
Follow the road from the Tschengla hiking car park to the foot of the slope at approx. 1,230 m. Keep slightly right over the mostly open slopes into the leveled area of the Furkla, approx. 1,600 m. On the right side of the valley it goes between Schillerkopf and Mondspitze below the yoke and at the end in hairpin bends steeply up the ridge or, if you want it more comfortably, up the small slope shoulder on the north slope of the Schillerkopf. The descent is the same as the ascent.
Alternative: Mondspitze, 1,967 M Bürserberg
The Mondspitze is more interesting in late winter due to the heavy growth of mountain pines. The route is the same as that to the Schillermulde up to the leveling. Then it goes straight on to the east ridge of the Mondspitze, stop there and just to the left of the ridge in hairpin bends to the summit. The descent is the same as the ascent.
