Freeride tour of the week | Kammerlinghorn

Rewarding ski tour in the southern Hochkalter massif

by Christian Skala ā€¢ 01/24/2016
The tour to the Kammerlinghorn not only offers a sunny ascent and a racy northern descent, but is also a great panoramic mountain between Bavaria and Salzburg.

The tour to the Kammerlinghorn not only offers a sunny ascent and a racy northern descent, but is also a great panoramic mountain between Bavaria and Salzburg.

Ascent

From the parking lot, take the asphalt road in the direction of Hirschbichel, where the summer trail to the "Kammerlingalm" branches off to the right after about half an hour. After another 30 minutes or so, you will reach some alpine huts, where the ascent branches off sharply to the left in a north-easterly direction (summer trail). The trail continues over quite steep terrain (open terrain, sparse forest, some rock faces) until you reach the broad ridge in the direction of the Kammerlinghorn. Now head east over a short, steeper ascent to the Karlkogel (this can also be bypassed to the south) and then continue along the western ridge over moderate terrain towards the Kammerlinghorn.

Descent

Like the ascent, the first section leads towards the Karlkogel. This is first bypassed to the south, then below the Karlkogel you branch off into a steep northern gully in the direction of Mittereisalm. Once you have reached the alpine pasture, follow an alpine path to the HirschbichelstraƟe and a short ascent of approx. 50 m to the Hirschbichel inn. Take the asphalt road back to the parking lot.

From here, take a very steep road in the direction of "Hirschbichel" (snow chains may be advisable - very icy in places!). After approx. 6 km you reach a large parking lot at the beginning of the driving ban. On our tour, we had to park well before the parking lot as some vehicles got stuck on the slippery road on the final ascent.
