Austria: Backcountry SkiingKleine Ankogel

Tadej, Nada and me decided to spend two days skiing in Austria. For the first day Tadej and me paid the most expensive one way ticket for the cable car - 29 €, that took us to Ankogelbahn Bergstation, from where we ascended to Kleine Ankogel, 3096 m. From the top we skied to Böckstein in the valley of Bad Gastein, 2000 meters lower. We boarded the train, that took us through the tunnel back to Mallnitz. We had an awesome skiing day.

We had a great day ahead

Just a few skiers ahead

White fairyland

Ankogel will be conquered in next attempt

My ride

Start of all the fun is where the skis are. From Kleiner Ankogel a steep couloir leads down towards the north-west.

Down and left into the valley

Tadej arrived

My curves

Long valley

The heaviest part was behind us

At this point the muscles were burning

 Last section was skiing through the forest and on the roads

From Obere Radeck Alm (Upper), 1701 m down to Untere Radeck Alm (Lower), 1573 m you can still ski comfortably.

Radeck-Alm - No beer here

Last section leads you next to some icy waterfalls to Böckstein, 1200 m.

Awesome skiing day that takes you from Carinthia over 3000 meter high peak to Salzburg state and through the tunnel back.
