Springtime enjoyment ski tour.
Under the spell of the king, the Ortler.

Start at the Gasthaus weißer Knott (1875m, road closed). First follow the road until the first right turn. Here, cross into the slope and continue to ascend following the valley floor. Continue up the now steeper north slope step by step to below the glacier quarry (2700m). Go around this steeply to the right and ascend into the shallow glacier basin of the Madatschferner. Cross briefly on level ground and then steeply up on the right to below the north-west flank of the Geisterspitze. Climb steeply up the south flank to the Geisterspitze at 3,467m. Descent as ascent.
