Snow shoe tour to Gasselhöhe

Open
A short snow shoeing tour on Reiteralm with impressive views over the Ennstal valley and to the Dachstein massif.
From Gleiming you take Reiteralm cable-car "Silver Jet" and then continue via "Gasselhöhe" chairlift to Reiteralm. From the top of the chairlift you start snow shoeing to the South. A first easy ascent takes you uphill before the second ascent - which is a bit steeper - brings you up to the summit of Gasselhöhe mountain. At the wooden cross on top you enjoy the views of Schladming Tauern mountain range and the Dachstein massif as well as of the Ennstal valley.

More information

From Schladming take the B320 "Ennstalbundesstraße" highway to Gleiming (about 8 kms) and the valley station of the Reiteralm cable-car "Silver Jet".
Von Gleiming fährst du mit der Gondelbahn Silver-Jet und der 6er-Sesselbahn Gasselhöhe auf die Reiteralm. Von der Bergstation der Sesselbahn startest du mit den Schneeschuhen Richtung Süden. Ein erster leichter Anstieg bringt dich auf eine kleine Anhöhe bevor der weitere Anstieg zur Gassehöhe beginnt. Am Gipfelkreuz der Gasselhöhe angekommen genießt du den wunderbaren Ausblick auf die Schladminger Tauern, das Dachstein-Massiv und das Ennstal.
For a slightly longer tour you can extend the tour from the summit of Gasselhöhe to the summit of Rippetegg to the South (additional 1-1.5 hours).
