LWD Tirol
Municipality: Navis

Beautiful, splitboard / ski tour, with some good, clearly visible descent-options, the avalanche danger should not be underestimated. The tour is rated with ZS, as there are some slopes steeper than 35 °. On the average, however, the route is not that difficult. But take care if you do not know the area.

Route description
Starting point:

Navis, Kirchenwirt


At the start, as always, the splitboard / ski touring skis are ready for hike. We follow the forest road which begins next to inn Kirchenwirt and walk into the Weihrichtal. The path can be shortened several times steeply through the forest (but you don`t have to). Again and again there are signs showing the way to Weihrichalm or Blasigleralm. Below the Weihrichalm we take the path through a short wooded section to the Blasigleralm. When we reach the alpine pasture, we cross the brook and climb up relatively steeply to the Blasigleralm. After the building we hike on steeply through open forest till our splitboards / skitouring ski will get the next forest road under their skins. At a bend (you will recognize), we leave the forest and hike up on the wide slope until shortly before the Stoffenalm. Now we head south into a high-valley (Hochtal). We keep  walking to the right to hold a safe distance from the steep slopes below the Hohe Warte (Silver Saddle). At the end of the valley we go on, making some sharp turns to the "Silbersattel" (as it is called by the locals) between Hoher Warte and Scheibenspitze.
Now we can choose the summit, depending to the snow-conditions and what we like to ride. On the left is the Hohe Warte. Enjoy the the beautiful view at the surrounding mountains: Olperer, Kaserer, Fußstein ... . Now we mount our splitboard / backcountry equipment , choose a safe line and enjoy the ride.



As ascent, but you can find nice splitboard-rides near the ascent track. The country is quite clear.

Gastronomy recommendation:

Inside the Kirchenwirt of Navis you  can meet local backcountry friends. But it is not so easy to get into a fruitful conversation.
