Spitzingsee: Rosskopf skitour - Jan 19
We started our skitour season on Rosskopf a month ago but from another side - Kurvenlift. We climbed most of the time on piste. This time, I was alone and decided to go through the forest. The tour starts from Stumplingbahn parking lot. Small descent on skis (I forgot about it and put my skins :-)). The climb goes through the forest half way up. As soon as the forest ends, it opens with possibilities for some freeride.
The last climb can be done via the ski slope (not much recommended as it is narrow and skiers!). I chose this way as it was early morning, slopes were already opened however but almost no one around. I met only five skiers, and one ski tourer.
Descent via ski slope 3a (rated black), it starts right below Rosskopf. The slope nicely groomed, few lines only before me. Few minutes later, skis back again to reach the parking lot. It was still quite empty to my suprise. Another possibility for early morning skitour.
- 55 minutes drive from Munich
- Parking lot at Stumpfling lift, I paid 5 euros per day in the parking lot prior entering the Stumplfing as ski lift parking was closed early in the morning (before 8 am).
- around 1:00 hour
