Impressive ski tour that requires a high level of snow and absolutely safe conditions, up to the Willersalpe forest, then open terrain, exposed summit ridge with climbing areas (UIAA I-II)

The Rauhhorn offers beautiful, steep and open north-facing slopes in the upper part. The lower part to the Willersalpe is via a quat way through the forest. You can only ski this part again when there is enough snow. Otherwise you have to walk up to the Willersalpe with your skis on your backpack and then descend from there to Hinterstein. The almost up to 35° steep northern slopes in the upper part require absolutely safe conditions. If these are still frozen in the morning, especially in spring, you definitely need ski crampons. Unlike in summer, you don´t head for the Gaiseck saddle, but cross a saddle to the right (southwest) to the connecting ridge between Gerenkopf (1898 m) and the pre-summit of the Rauhhorn. Surefootedness, a head for heights and alpine experience are absolute prerequisites for the summit ridge. Especially the cornices that slope to the east should be treated with caution. So don´t go too far to the left on the ridge.
