Easy ski tour in the Tannheim Mountains

For those looking for an easy ski tour in the Tannheim Mountains, the piste tour from Nesselwängle via Haldensee, Edenalpe and Krinnenalpe is recommended. The varied tour does not require deep snow skills, because you ski on the slopes of the Krinnen lifts. A stop at the Krinnenalpe is worthwhile.
