Tip for ski touring on the Ronachkopf
Following your own rhythm, getting closer to your goal step by step and enjoying the silence and beauty of winter nature: a ski tour has something almost meditative about it - especially when you're out in the moonlight. Have you ever done a night ski tour? If you want to try it, we have the perfect tip for you!
When the day in Zell am See-Kaprun slowly comes to an end and night falls over the mountains, we will just be setting off on this tour: a very special adventure is on the agenda! The tour leads up a mountain that is only reserved for ski tourers and winter hikers - the Ronachkopf near Zell am See. Down in the valley the full moon reflects in the water, the bright lights of the town twinkle, but up here only the moonlight and - admittedly - our headlamps show us the way. It's a magical atmosphere nonetheless.
The tour is particularly beautiful when the full moon in winter lets the snow glitter at night. By the way, the next full moon in 2022 is on 16 February and is appropriately called "Snow Moon" for good reasons. If you are on holiday in Zell am See-Kaprun during this event, you should not miss out on this adventure.
Once you have taken off the skins of your skis, a reward awaits you at the Enzianhütte at 1,260 metres just before the descent: the Enzianhütte is open until 10 pm for a stop on the ski touring mountain. This is also the closing time of the ski touring mountain, which must be adhered to by all sportsmen and women.
