Cozy snowshoe hike on one of the most panoramic peaks in the Pfunderer mountains. From the car park at the Schneeberg (1,550 m), walk on the woodland route nr. 5 (it is also a toboggan run in winter) up to Lower Pertinger Alm hut (1,860 m). Go straight on in a northerly direction across the path. From the treeline mainly over a low hill to the summit (Am Joch, 2,405 m).
