Skiing tour Veitsch


Brunnalm - Veitsch  (Styria)

Approach: S6 Exit Mitterdorf, then direction Veitsch and Brunnalm (small skiing area). You can park your car at Gasthof Scheikl.
Altitude difference:
800 m
Walking time: Ascent about 3 hours. Decscent 1 hour.
Difficulty: easy

The Veitsch is a quiet popular mountain for skiing tours in this region. Especially the ascent from the north (called Rodel) is very popular. Because we were a little bit too late for the Rodel-tour, we decided to take the south ascent from Brunnalm near the village of Veitsch.
The Hohe Veitsch is a typical limestone mountain, with steep sidewalls and a quit flat plateau. Our route leads us from Brunnalm (1154m) up to the mountain hut of Graf-Meran-Haus (1836m) and to the summit of Hohe Veitsch (1981m). This tour has no difficult parts but you will find some nice ski runs.
