Long, persistent ski tour on a great and high panoramic mountain, which is much less visited than its famous neighbor, the Piz Buin (3312 m), overnight stay at the Silvrettahütte

The high-altitude ski tour on the Silvrettahorn is a distinctive daily destination that is only recommended for fit ski-tourers. First you make many kilometers through a relatively flat valley before you gain height. With a total of 2000 meters in altitude and a distance of about 13 km, a really distinctive day. The danger of crevasses on the Silvretta Glacier is to be classified as relatively low in this section, nevertheless we went in a rope team up to the beginning of the western flank of the Silvrettahorn, especially since we had everything with us anyway. The western flank is relatively steep. Therefore you should have safe conditions for this ascent and be experienced in the kick turn technique.
