Start at the valley station of the ski lift, ascent along the ski slope approx. 5 min. to the start of the trail.

As an alternative, you can take the start of the winter hiking trail, at the beginning of the upper car park, follow the signs.

The high-altitude trail is also used as a winter hiking trail. Thanks to the altitude (2,190 m), this trail is particularly snow-sure.
