Directly at the Ochsengarten cable car station follow the signs to the prepared forest path west of the ski slope 09. In a pleasant climb, you will reach the ski slope after about 20 minutes. Always ascending on the right side of the piste, you reach a junction from the ski slope to the signposted forest path for another 20 minutes. Away from the hustle and bustle of the slopes, you can climb up comfortably next to each other. At first flat, then slightly uphill you reach the ski slope 05 in about half an hour. This is crossed in a clear position to continue climbing over the forest path. After a few hundred meters and a first serpentine you reach the edge of the slopes, but here you continue following the forest path and only in the top third of the ascent route you get back to the ski slope. From here in a few meters altitude and about 20-30 minutes walk to the finish at the reservoir Hochoetz and mountain station.

Author’s recommendation

Very nice ascent in a great winter landscape and impressive panorama. Most of the route takes place on signposted forest paths.
