Highly Delicious
The tastiest mountain hut crawl in the Alps - along the Königstour at Hochkönig, one skis from hut to hut for a different course, from a predinner drink to dessert and inbetween enjoy a run down the slopes. Your fill of culinary enjoyment and sport should be easy to digest on a romantic horse drawn sleigh ride through the snowy winter forest.
Kingsline Freeride day
A maximum Freeride day: 53 kilometres, 1,000 metre ascent and 4,000 metre descent. All this with hired Freeride equipment and a professional guide. For most of the ascents a lift can be taken. On a few of the slopes you will need to go up on your touring skis. At the end of the day you will be given a personal video in rememberance of this day and there will be a cosy dinner at the Scheppalalm and a get-together at the bar.
Backcountry ski tour
A Go-Pro instead of a crown is fixed onto your helmet to record your own personal impressions of this King's ski tour. You set off at the break of dawn in order to capture the atmosphere of the surrounding mountains. An ample breakfast at the summit makes the two hour ascent in the untouched snow of the "Hundstein" slope much easier. The run down afterwards, over various options, is a very refreshing freestyle experience. Experience and learnings from the avalanche training, with emergency equipment, is a valuable experience for your own future ski tours.
