Stubacher Sonnblick 3088m
An undemanding Three Thousander in the Granatspitz Group: The high Stubacher Sonnblick is the ideal Three Thousander for the first Ski tour in high alpine terrain. No prior alpine knowledge is required for the ascent and thanks to some lift access, quite achievable in one day. The Summit commands magnificent views of both the Glockner and the Venediger Groups. Our Ski tour begins at the Rudolfshütte (Rudolfs Hut) and we ski down over the frozen Weißsee (White Lake) Reservoir. Carrying on over slightly rising ground, and a gentle glacier ridge and a short steep final rim, we reach the 3088m high Sonnblick summit. Our efforts will be rewarded with a stunning view of the surrounding Three Thousanders (eg. The Großglockner and the Grossvenediger /Great Venetian). Our descent follows our tracks back to the Rudolfshütte and along the piste back to the valley.
Guided by a fully Austrian qualified Mountain and Ski guide. Rental equipment such as Touring Skis, Skins, Touring boots, Avalanche Safety Equipment, Avalanche Airbag can be provided at an extra cost.
