Ski touring in the Brandnertal

The Brandnertal valley is the perfect starting point for the quiet variety of skiing: ski touring.

Brandnertal - snow paradise for ski tourers

The tranquility of the snow-covered mountains, the great feeling of standing on a summit and having conquered the mountain and the magnificent feeling of gliding down a virgin deep-snow slope - that’s what ski tourers feel when discovering the Brandnertal on skies beside the pistes.

Preparation and equipment
A ski tour must be planned carefully. Make sure in advance that you can find the right tracks on the map and you can read it correctly. A good weather report and a foregoing check on the avalanche warnings are essential! Appropriate clothing and equipment are an important safety factor.

Equipment required necessarily:

  • Avalanche beacon    
  • probe    
  • shovel    
  • First aid kit

You can rent and buy all these equipments in our shops and rentals in the villages Brand and Bürserberg.

  • de:Skitouren im Brandnertal;

    Schesaplana, 2.965 m


    Starting point: at the end of the village Brand on 1.120 meters
    Altitude: 1,850 m
    Difficulty: medium
    Avalanche risk: high
    Season: February to May 

    The absolute highlight is the ski tour to the highest peak of the Rätikon - the Schesaplana. The very long, physically demanding tour with several steep sections will be rewarded with a magnificent panoramic view of the summit.

    On the road "Schattenlagant" you go further to the valley where the gondola of Lünerseebahn is. From there (most way you cannot go with skies) hike up the walk "Böser Tritt" until reaching Luenersee. The track takes you further around the western part of the Luenersee. From about the middle of Luenersee one track goes slightly uphill and leads to Totalp Hut. After Totalp go further on left back of the mountain range to the border of Schesaplana. Follow this steep track to the highest point and the mountain cross. The last meters to go are mostly only accessible by foot.
