Tour Description

A hut could not be better situated as a starting point for ski tours: the Franz Senn Hut in the central Stubai Alps in the heart of Tyrol offers plenty of ascents for ski tourers. There are known peaks such as Ruderhofspitze, Lüsenser Fernerkogel, Schrankogel and many more. In each direction we can turn, whether we feel like skiing on sunny springsnow slopes, or like to draw in powder snow our tracks … the hard-working here also create both in one day.

Day 1
Individual arrival, meeting point at 10 am in Neustift im Stubaital. From here makes a carpool to the starting point Seduck in the Oberbergtal sense, since there the parking is limited. Luggage transport to the cabin is possible, so take a separate bag / backpack for the items that are not needed for the cabin climb. So we can tackle the three-hour hut climb with minimal equipment. 3 hours / 700 m ascent.

Day 2
We take a leisurely tour to settle in today: the Kräulscharte with a little more than 3000 m altitude, is our goal. The Sommerwandferner over which we lay our downhill lines offers plenty of space and guaranteed powder snow until spring. 3-4 hours / 900 m ascent.

Day 3
Well acclimatised today we go to the eastern Seespitze, 3416 m. After wandering through the shallow Trough Valley for some time, the steep ascent to the left will open to our target. From the summit, which can be reached with skins, we enjoy the view of the highest Stubai peak, the Zuckerhütl, and then come back to the hut on the way to the ascent. 4-5 hours / 1300 m ascent.

Day 4
Today we do a “round trip”: after a short descent to Alpeiner Alm we climb to the Kleine Horntaler Joch, 2794 m. Beyond this transition opens the lonely Little Horn Valley, in whose slopes we can draw countless turns. Depending on your condition, we finish this downhill sooner or later. An ascent leads us to the flat Lüsener Ferner and finally to the (“Paradox”) Vorderes Hinterbergl, 3131 m, from where we can relaxed ski down to the hut. 5-6 hours / approx. 1500 m ascent.

Day 5
After these two big tours, we will start today quietly and hike towards Hidden Glacier. Depending on the motivation, we can choose the length of our ascents and descend on cozy grounds in spring powder and firn to the hut. 3-4 hours / 900-1100 m ascent.

Day 6
An inconspicuous dip in the so-called “Geschwetzgrat” is the gateway to a beautiful, hidden Kar, through which we climb on the last day depending on your mood, and then advantageously very straight to our cars. In the meantime we have the luggage conveniently transported down.
