Fageralm Tour

Open
About 7.5 km long ski tour with about 900 meters of altitude along the ski paths to the Fageralm.

A technically simple piste ski tour for which you should, however, be a little more fit. With an vertical ascent of 900 meters and a length of around 7.5 kilometers, the tour is quite a challenge - especially for beginners in touring sports. You will be rewarded with a winter wonderland in the alpine pasture area of the Fageralm, a wonderful view of the imposing Dachstein massif and a hearty stop at one of the ski huts.

Opening hours:

As long as the snow situation permits, the slopes are open to ski tourers daily from 8.30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Touring ticket required:

A fee of € 12 per person / day is payable for the ascent and use of the infrastructure such as slopes, parking lot, guidance system, etc. This does not apply to owners of a valid season ski pass - please take this season ski pass with you and show it at the ticket station - thank you!

More information

From the west:

From the A10 Tauern motorway turn off at Altenmarkt and follow the B99 federal road to Radstat. You stay on this until the roundabout at the end of Radstadt and take the 3rd exit to Forstau. From here it's about 6 km past the Seitenalm family hotel and over the top of the pass to the valley station of the Forstaubahn.

From the east:

Turn off the A9 Phyrn-Autobahn at Liezen and on the B320 Ennstalbundesstraße past Schladming to Gleiming and there turn onto the L721 Gleimingstraße. Continue to Forstau (from the state border Salzburg the road is numbered L223) to the valley station of the Forstaubahn.

From Gasthof Unterreith at the Fageralm valley station you walk across the practice meadow to the edge of the forest and then follow the edge of the slopes of the ski path from the Fageralm. During the ascent to the mountain station of the Forstaubahn (you cross under it a few times) you also cross the valley run a few times - caution is advised!

From the Forstaubahn mountain station, follow the Jägerlift Skiweg to the right of the Jägerlift valley station and then - roughly - the summer hiking trail no.2 until you reach the extensive alpine pasture area of the Fageralm at the Unterbergalm. Past the Lechneralm and the Premhütte you continue to climb until you reach the route of the summery Fagerstraße, which you then follow to the Trinkeralm. From there it is another 100 meters and half a kilometer to the Hinterfager mountain station and the Goliath giant swing, where you have reached your destination.

The descent takes place along the ascent route or along the Forstau valley run.

The Fageralm is a snowy alp area that offers some nice variations on the descent.
With the ski bus 900S from Schladming (from the train station you walk approx. 250 m to the bus stop at Planai-West ski station) to the Fageralm.
Sufficient parking spaces are available at the Forstaubahn valley station.
