Easter on Mount Krippenstein

Farewell to the snow

While the white of the winter fades in the valleys and spring is just around the corner, the buttery soft firn snow, which is so appreciated by many ski tourers, is being created on the 2000 meter high Krippenstein. Because its shiny crust makes it easy to glide. A lot of warming sun during the day and frosty temperatures at night - that's the recipe for the firn snow. It's therefore great that the Dachstein Krippenstein cable car will be running from Good Friday to Easter Monday. But not only touring skiers get their money's worth on these days, also snowshoe hikers and sun worshipers have the chance for a mountain adventure during the Easter holidays. It is the chance for those who still enjoy the tranquillity of the mountains and want to say farewell to the snow.
