Ski moutaineering to Saldurspitze Peak

General description

Route A

Starting point: Maso Corto/Kurzras, Koflhof farm (1,938 m a.s.l)
Ascent: 1,497 m elevation gain, 5 hours
Best time: December to May

To the south, the Saldurkamm mountains sweep down towards the Schlandrauntal valley, to the west towards Matschertal valley and to the north towards Maso Corto/Kurzras over the Lagaunalm Mountain Hut. The tour to the Saldurspitze is quite challenging but spectacular. The ascent starts at Koflhof farm (0.7 km before Kurzras) and takes you through the Lagauntal Valley. From the uppermost section here, continue upwards and to the right through the steep tunnel valley to the Lagaun glacier and then northwards until you are beneath the Saldurspitze. A short, steep tunnel valley connects the southern ridge of the mountain with the glacier.

You can descend by the same route (moderately difficult), or by the steep north-east wall and the Lazaun Mountain Hut to Maso Corto/Kurzras (difficult).

For good skiers with Alpine experience

Route B

Starting point: Maso Corto/Kurzras, car park (2,011 m a.s.l)
Ascent: 1,424 m elevation gain, 5 hours
Best time: December to May

To the south, the Saldurkamm mountains sweep down towards the Schlandrauntal valley, to the west towards Matschertal valley and to the north towards Maso Corto/Kurzras over the Lagaunalm Mountain Hut. The tour starts on the mountain station of the Lazaun cable car. From the mountain station Lazaun, we continue on the level and then follow the slight incline up to the Lagaunferner glacier. This is the way to the Saldurjoch pass; there is a ski depot here. On foot over the north ridge to the summit. In good weather conditions, you can start the climb to the summit before the Saldurjoch pass taking the steep north flank. You can only descend by this route (difficult) if weather conditions are good.
