Up the 2,725-m high Hirzer - Wattental

A popular tour in the Watten valley - first woodland, later flattish mountain pasture and then higher up stunning ski slopes form the main features of this tour. Usually tracked, as very popular with the locals, the Hirzer is not a particularly difficult tour - but an elevation gain of 1,370m should not be taken lightly.

Turn-by-turn directions

Start out at a mountain bar and finish at a mountain bar … that may stir up of malicious rumours about the purpose of the tour, but it would be unworthy to think such thoughts about the Hirzer. The tour stars with a gentle climb just north of the car-park and then winds its way up to the open pastures of the Pofersalm (1,600m). 

In some places it is possible to take a short cut through the forest, but the steep incline and the dense woodland reduce any time savings and use up energy unnecessarily. Following the open pastures to the east, the track branches off to the south east just below the Pofersalm, passing a small mountain pasture hut and then continues on through a wide clearing and less compact stone pine forest as far as the Poferer Hochleger (upper pasture). Continuing mainly in an easterly direction through perfect skiing terrain, you gain height, then follow the north-west ridge running from the Sagspitze as far as a secondary peak. Remove your skis and cover the last few metres to the summit on foot.

Downhill same as ascent.
