Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts at the Watles chairlift mountain station. This can be reached either by chairlift or on foot via the winter hiking trail. The rest of the ascent is via the right-hand side of the ski slope to the summit.

Return via the ascent route, or descend via the ski slopes, although the freshly groomed slopes should only be skied on the edges.

Refreshments: Plantapatschhütte hut, Höferalm alpine pasture, in the restaurants in Prämajur
