Easy and uncomplicated snowshoe tour up to the Pfrontener Alpe via forest paths, then moderately steep and free slopes to the summit.

An easy, short and popular tour that can be done in almost all conditions. About half of it leads along a forest path and a "DAV Skibergsteigen umweltfreundlich" (DAV ski mountaineering environmentally friendly) certified route in the reforestation zone, the other half along beautiful, free and only moderately steep slopes. Only the trail through the forest in the lower part can be unpleasant when icy. In the upper, free area, magnificent views of the Allgäu and Tannheim mountains reward the effort of the ascent.

Sehr aussichtsreiche Tour. Weg gut beschildert auch im Winter leicht zu finden. Als alternativer Abstieg empfehle ich (natürlich auch umweltverträglich) von der Pfrontener Alpe in Richtung Himmelreich zu laufen und am Waldrand nach Überquerung des Bachlaufs den lichten Nadelwald talwärts zu folgen bis man auf einen kehrenreichen Pfad trifft, der idyllisch bis ins Tal führt (s. Bild - Pfad/Steig ist in den Sommerwanderkarten verzeichnet und ihm fehlen nur wenige Meter in Verbindung zum Wanderweg zwischen Pfrontener Alpe und Himmelreich/Kienberg).

Gebirgsarena pur Man hat die Wahl einen bequemen etwas längeren Weg mit Kehren zu laufen oder sportlich direkt den steileren Hang hinauf. Ab der Alpe baut sich Schritt für Schritt eine Arena der umliegenden Gipfel auf- atemberaubend. Ganz hochgehen lohnt sich unbedingt. Unsere Höhenangabe war 811m Höhenmeter, etwas mehr als hier beschrieben. Insgesamt mit Pausen hat unsere Schneeschuhtour 5h gedauert.
