Ronachkopf in Thumersbach

Ski touring and snowshoe hiking

The local Thumersbach mountain is open again, after a pause of 15 years, for ski touring and snowshoe hiking.

The tour on the Ronachkopf is easy and scenically beautiful – with panoramic views to the Schmittenhöhe, the Hohe Tauern and Zell am See. It is a comfortable climb for beginners and more advanced skiers and hikers, to the summit above the Enzian hut at 1,350 m above sea level. Your Enzian hut host spoils hungry winter athletes, every day, with local culinary specialities.

The slope is open down to the valley from the beginning of December to mid April (well into Spring), depending on the snow conditions.
