Tour ski & splitboard hut tour Sellrain | Epique - Mountain Adventures

Ski tour Sellrain Hut tour

Austria

You can experience real ‘mountain life’ from an authentic mountain hut. No lifts or crowded slopes around you, but tranquility and a wide choice of pristine terrain and challenging peaks. The Sellrain Mountains are located south of Innsbruck, between the Ötztal and the Stubaital. Located in the province of Tyrol and the main Alpine ridge. We climb and descend between 2,000 and 3,300 meters in a snow-sure area, known for its endless freeride and ski touring opportunities. As we stay above 2000 meters, the conditions here are ideal for ski touring or split boarding in March.

Tour ski and Splitboard Hut tour for advanced

This hut tour is suitable for experienced tour skiers or splitboarders and consists of 6 tour days. From Axamer Lizum we tour along five well-maintained and cozy mountain huts. The guide pays attention to technique, both on the way up and down. Every evening we look back on the day and the journey we made. The route is planned for the next day based on the level and wishes of the group.

“After an extremely careful decision-making process, my ‘tour ski group of friends’ chose the Sellrain group in season 17/18. A few words from the plan specially forged by Gijs-Jan: local Innsbruckers, rugged mountains, beautiful terrain, many alternate descents.” Read more…

What are you going to do

Travel to Axamer Lizum

We meet at the beginning of the evening in the Axamer Lizum, a small ski area south of Innsbruck. We check in at a hotel in the drop, have dinner together, discuss the program for the coming week and pack our backpacks.

Axamer Lizum to the Potsdamer Hütte

We take the first lift up and go freeriding for a morning in the area of Axamer Lizum. After lunch we descend from the Hoald to the Kemateralm. From here we tour to the Angerbergkopf and ski/board into the Fotschertal. From here it is a short climb to the Potsdamer Hütte.

Tour to the Westfalenhaus

Today the Westfalenhaus is our final destination. From the Potsdamer mountain hut it is a three hour walk to the Rote Kogel. From this mountain top we can descend to the Lüsens Valley. From Lüsens it is a three hour walk uphill to the Westfalenhaus mountain hut.

Tour to the Winnebachsee Hut

After a good breakfast in the Westfalenhaus we climb the Westliche Seeblaskogel. From the top, at 3,050 meters, there is a wonderful descent to the Winnebachseehütte.

Tour to the Schweinfurter Hütte

Today we tour from the Winnebachseehütte via the Breite Griesskogel (3,287m) and the Larstigscharte (3,022m) to the Schweinfurter Hütte.

Tour to the Pforzheimer Hütte

From the Schweinfurter Hütte we climb the Kraspesspitze (2,954m). Via the Kraspess valley we descend to the last hut of our tour; the Pforzheimer Hut.

Tour to the Sellrain Valley and travel to the Netherlands

In the Pforzheimer hütte we pack the backpack one more time for our last ski tour. After a brisk morning tour we finally arrive in the Sellrain valley. Here we take a taxi back to our cars in Axams and drive back to the Netherlands.

About this trip

Blog post

Professional, pleasant, fanatic, good and with a lot of dedication.

Epique’s guides are very good, we set out with a group of 28 people with Gijs-Jan as the main guide. The guides radiate a lot of experience. This gives confidence to the whole group. It’s so nice how they handle it , and for the avid skier this is really fantastic: walking uphill alone through unspoilt terrain, skiing down and setting first tracks.

Also we couldn’t go to the reserved cabin the first day because of an avalanche on the way there. However this was excellent and soon moved to a hotel in the valley.

Highly recommended, really!

Gijs-Jan and other guides thank you, on behalf of the entire group.
