New ascent route: Skitour-Maiskogel
The newly marked track for touring skiers who are climbing the Maiskogel provides a safe alternative right at the edge of the piste. The route begins at Maiskogel parking area "Maiskogelbahn" (near the Kaprun Center) and leads all the way up to the Almbahn mountain terminal, elev. 1,733 m (ca. 970 m vertical gain / ca. 6,5 km total length) and to the
3K K-onnection valley station, 1,570 m (ca. 800 m gain / ca. 6,2 km). Depending on your stamina and what you are in the mood for, you have the option to end your tour at various points, then safely ski down the piste back to the valley.
