The prize includes an overnight stay in the Naturfreundehaus Sonnblick with half board as well as the ski tour with a state-certified mountain guide on the Hohe Sonnblick.

Depending on the weather and avalanche situation, you will spend two unforgettable days together in Kolm Saigurn in Rauris from April 01-02. The motto of the days is "Magic Moments" and "Safe on the mountain". Our mountain guide will teach you practical tips and tricks on how to move safely in open terrain, how to assess the avalanche situation on site based on the avalanche situation report and which ascent and descent route to choose. 

ORTOVOX will provide you with the complete ORTOVOX safety equipment on loan for these days: Avalanche transceiver, shovel, probe and an AVABAG Ascent 40 lt. backpack, which you can test extensively on this day.

What do you need to bring with you?

You move in free, alpine terrain. A safe handling of your ski touring equipment and a condition of 6-8 hours or 1,600 hm in ascent and descent is a prerequisite. In addition, safe skiing in all types of snow and slopes with 30-35 degrees should not be a problem for you.


The weekend will take place from 01-02 April. Depending on the weather and avalanche situation it will be decided if the tour to the Hohen Sonnblick is possible. Otherwise an alternative tour will be planned. 


Meeting point is the parking lot Lenzanger. From there we will ascend to the Naturfreundehaus for the overnight stay on April 01, from where we will go to the Hohen Sonnblick the next day.
