LWD Tirol

Gentle tour with wide, open mountain pasture slopes for beginners or as an alternative in unsafe conditions. Very popular tour with beginners and accordingly on fine weekends usually very crowded.

Route description
Starting point:

Plenty free parking along the street shortly after Schwarzenau.


From the first car park, below a steep hill on the left along the small stream (almost always tracks) to the upper houses of Schwarzenau. Right here on a "back" to the forest road which crosses the stream. Following the signs to the left along a fence (barbed wire) directly towards the steep meadows and aiming up to the top right of this. Now follow the forest road to the left through the forest and then right across a meadow to the Lower Prädastenalm. In principle, following the forest road, you will soon reach the steeper pastures below the Prädastenalm, you either climb them directly in a few bends or easily follow the forest road.

Straight from the pasture to the east, over a short steeper step then keep left and fairly flat over towards Vordere Feldalm. Even before this pasture in a right turn up the light-wooded ridge and with little exhaust in southeastern direction further up until you turn left onto the flat summit plateau. The summit cross is photogenic on a small ledge.

On nice days, fantastic views on many tour destinations in the area.


More or less along the ascent route down the spacy slopes. It usually does not take long, then along the route there is at least one strip retracted like piste.

    Avalanche Warning Level: 2
    Risk potential: Trotz mehr als 30cm Neuschnee entlang der beschriebenen Route sehr gering, auch oben kaum Triebschnee.
    Comment / Trip report:

    Kaum zu glauben, aber auch am Feldalphorn gibt es Tage an denen fast niemand unterwegs ist. Aufstieg im leichten Schneetreiben, der Neuschnee war ab der Pädasteralm locker pulvrig, die Sicht stets ausreichend aber ohne jeglichen Fernblick. Das Schönste, ganze drei Spuren denen man an diesem Spätnachmittag großzügig aus dem Weg gehen konnte.

    Prognose: Mit dem kommenden Neuschnee und der eher ungünstig angesagten Lawinensituation: werktags wieder gut ;-)
