History of the ski-touring mountain
Until its shutdown in 1998, the Ronachkopf in Thumersbach was a popular mountain for skiing among locals as well as holiday guests. In 2014, the mountain was reopened as a ski-touring mountain. It offers ski tourers the possibility to practice their sport away from the slopes.

Whether it’s for a day trip, a weekend or a holiday. For families or for pleasure-seekers. The Schmitten is the perfect destination for all those who want to add some variety to their leisure time!
