Ski Touring & Winter Hiking at the Lake Wolfgangsee

You can go on a ski tour at the Postalm as well as on the Mountain Katrin right next to the town Bad Ischl.
Since the slopes on the mountain has been closed for skiing, ski touring enthusiasts discovered this mountainside for winter wandering. You enjoy a 4 km long tour and get over 900m of altitude difference.

You go uphill from the valley station across the former downhill slope. Halfway through the tour you can decide if you want to follow the slope or if you go left to the alp Katrin Alm. It is recommended to take the tour to the Katrin Alm because with a great amount of fresh snow the tour via the former slope is dangerous through avalanches.

The owner of the hut on the mountain Katrin, Mr. Erwin Lechner, tries to prepare a track for the wanderers but this isn’t an official slope nor a route for a ski tour.
That means there aren’t any safty precautions and you are responsible for yourself.
Our tip: take an LVS-device (Avalanche transceivers), a sensor and a shovel with you.
An Opportunity to visit a mountain hut is the alp hut Katrin Almhütte!
