Through the white on the Spitz
With touring skis through the winter landscape in the Wipptal valley on the Weißspitz with a view of the Pfitschertal valley and the Pfunderer mountains.

Follow the path (toboggan run) for approx. 2.8 km until you reach a fork in the path at a large, flat area (1540 m). From there turn right and continue flat for a short distance, then turn left and climb steeply up a path until you reach a grate (poles). Now walk straight up over beautiful clearings until you see a small hut on the left. Shortly above the hut you cross a path (1830 m), beware of avalanches! Follow the path to the right for 30 m and up a valley (narrow and steep) to the left. At 1980 m you pass a barn. Now walk flat through the wide valley to several small huts (2040 m). Now over a ridge up to 2290 m. Over bumps and hollows to 2460 m, then right onto a ridge and sloping right to the ridge (2620 m). Walk along this ridge to below the rocky summit. Below the summit, turn right to a small steep slope between the rocks. The last part is a short steep climb up to the highest point (the cross is a little further down on the right). Descent as ascent.
