Overview & routes

Innere Schwarze Schneid is located In Ötztal Alps, in Weisskamm group, between the Otz and Pitz valleys. It’s one of the highest summits above the mountain resort – Sölden. The north-east slope of the summit is covered by Rettenbach glacier and the south-east slope by Tiefenbach Glacier. On both glaciers, is located part of Sölden ski area and cable cars. Under the summit, on the east slope is the big panorama terrace, where you can see the great views of Ötztal Alps and a lot of further summits (e.g. Zugspitze, Ortler, Dolomites). This panorama terrace is very easy to access (10 min. walk) from the mountain station of Schwarze Schneid cable car. A lot of tourists whose reach the terrace think that there is a summit, but it’s a fault. Platform is about 100 meters under the main summit.
From Schwarze Schneid Cable car, there isn’t any marked route to the summit. To reach Innere Schwarze Schneid with normal route you must go to the Tiefenbachferner cable car, which take you to Tiefenbachjoch. There’s another panoramic terrace – suspension bridge above the precipice. From the pass you must go about half an hour on the rocky path with ropes.
