Day 1:  Dresdner Hütte

From the village of Mutterberg (1750m) we take the lift and climb five minutes to Dresdner hut (2308m).

Day 2:  Dresdner Hütte – Amberger Hütte

We climb the valley to the foot of the Daunkogelferner, then by a high valley meet the Daunjoch and a short, steeper slope.  We climb the Hintere Daunkopf (3225m) if conditions suit.  Descent by the glacier, followed by a plateau that we cross to reach the hut tucked at the head of the valley (2135m).

Hours:  6
Altitude covered:  +925m and -1090m

Day 3:  Kuhscheibenspitz

An out-and-back stage from the hut with the ascent of Kuscheibenspitz (3169m).  We again set on to the plateau then, to the right, climb the slopes leading to the glacier.  The summit is reached without too much difficulty and a beautiful descent awaits.  Night at Amberger Hütte.

Hours: 6 to 7
Altitude covered:  +1065m and -1065m

Day 4:  summit of our choice

We take our pick of summits in an out-and-back trip from the refuge, tailored to conditions.  The options are numerous and varied.


Day 5:  Franz Senn Hütte – Wildgratscharta

We head out once more on to the plateau to plunge into the pretty valley leading to the foot of the Schrankogel.  From there, we reach the base of the Wildgratscharta by a loop skirting a serac zone.  A 70m climb with our skis on our backs brings us to the pass (3168m).

Descent by the south-east to the Franz Senn hut (2147m)

Hours: 5 to 6
Altitude covered:  +1060m and -1018m or +1260m for the summit

Day 6:  Wildes Hinterbergl

Another gorgeous tour from the hut.  A very early departure to cover the distance it takes to climb the valley.  We branch off to the right toward the Berglasferner.  We climb to the summit of the Wildes Hinterbergl (3288m).  Descent by the same route and return to the valley.

Hours:  5 to 6
Altitude covered:  +1140m and -1140m

Winter - Ski touring - Interactive map -  - Stubaï

Description

South of Innsbruck stretches the Stubaï range, bristling with 3000m summits, making a ski tourer's paradise. Here, skiing is a way of life and the chain boasts mountain huts that resemble hotels: you'll return from a testing stage or a summit to the siren song of comfort. Despite its modest altitude compared to the Alps, Stubaï is a cold range with a mountainscape that's the real deal. It's common to find snow at 1000m in April. We alternate hut-to-hut traverses from with out-and-back stages. This lets us ascend summits tailor-made for ski touring with light packs. This is an essential range for all mountaineers who love ski touring.
