Tour description

The open summit slope of the Feldernkopf (2,071 m) is positively inviting to backcountry skiers in the Alpenwelt Karwendel region. The interesting climb to the Feldernkopf begins at the parking lot at the Seinsalm, north of Mittenwald. From here, backcountry skiers first follow the forest road toward the Vereiner Alm alpine hut, to branch off to the left at the Ochsenalm alpine hut (not open to the public). The track then leads to the northeast through the alpine forest to an open ridge. From there, backcountry skiers follow the trail to the right, to the summit of the Feldernkopf. In safe avalanche conditions, backcountry skiers can descend directly in a chute to the west.
Backcountry ski tours in the alpine terrain must be carefully planned. This preparation includes the proper selection of tour destination, assessment of the current avalanche and weather situation and an evaluation of one's own capabilities and experience – backcountry skiing is always at your own risk!
