Route Description

When climbing Hochkarfelderkopf with by ski you can shorten the ascent by using the drag lift. At the top of the lift you have to look for the ski track that usually runs up on the ridge between Labachrinne and Passruckgraben. Beautiful woods are crossed till a height of approximately 1600m a.s.l. Here only dwarf-pines can exist. At a height of about 1900m a.s.l. a small but impressive plateau, confined by steep walls, is entered. At the western end of the plateau a steep slope leads to the summit ridge of Hochkarflderkopf.
This last slope might be dangerous if snow conditions aren´t stable.
Depending on snow conditions and whether there is a track or not the ascent may take 3 to 4 hours.
