Tour and variant areas in Bichlalm
Using the Canadian and American 'off-Piste' areas as an example
The North route is once again accessible after rock falls in the Waldschneise area in the winter!
Off-Piste Bichlalm: a perfect ski tour area
Destination: the Stuckkogel and Hochetzkogel area.
Freeriders can book their journey directly via a ski school (Rote Teufel, Element 3, Skischule Reith, Ski-Alpin, Snowsports and Alpin Experts) or guarantee themselves one of the coveted seats with a quick phone call to Bergbahn Kitzbühel in the Hornbahn cable car office on 05356/1411. The last booking option is intended for those making last-minute plans. With a little luck you might be able to secure one of the last free places if you make it to Oberaigen car park, the meeting place for ski tourers, but that's on a first come – first served basis.
You buy your ticket from the driver.
Please note: no car parking available for tourers at Gasthof Oberaigen and Sonnbergstüberl. Tourers can only park at Bichlalm valley station and just below Oberaigen farmstead! Please look for the signpost "Tourenparkplatz Bichlalm".
