Ski tour Wildspitze with mountain guide: the ski tour to the Wildspitze is one of the big classic ski tours in the Eastern Alps. By using the cable cars of the Pitztal Glacier Resort it’s a one-day ski tour to the highest peak of Tirol. The summit climb is followed by a breathtaking 2.000 vertical metres downhill run via the Taschach glacier down to the valley.
Price applies for 1-2 persons. Each additional person +10%.
From the top station of the Mittelbergbahn cableway we ski down to the Mittelbergjoch col, 3.166 m. We keep on going down 90 vertical metres until we reach the flat Taschach glacier where we put the skins on our skis.
We ascend via hilly terrain and pass impressive seracs. Then we reach the ski depot at around 3.680 m above sea level.
Now we rope up, put the crampons on and and climb the last 100 vertical metres on the south east ridge. We have to tackle a short climbing section with grade I+ (UIAA). After that, we stand just next to the mighty summit cross and enjoy the breathtaking 360 degrees view.
We go down the same way back to the ski depot. Then we ski down an almost 2.000 vertical metres downhill run via the Taschach glacier back to the valley station of the Glacier Express.
