Powder snow and firn

The paradise of ski touring

At the base of Grossglockner

Starting point for wonderful ski tours in the Hohe Tauern National Park.

The Lucknerhaus is ideal for tours into the Glockner and Schober mountain groups. Ascents, such as the Figerhorn, the Romariswandkopf, the Weissen Knoten, the Gridenkarköpfe to the Böse Weibele or the magnificent tour to Grossglockner, magically attract hundreds of ski tourers and snowshoe hikers annually.
