The isolation and tranquility of the mountain, that ascent to lofty heights and the moment when you reach the summit and the world lies at your feet - it's a feeling that words simply can't do justice to.
For moments such as these, the SalzburgerLand, and particularly its Weissee Glacier World near Uttendorf, has developed over recent years into a ski-touring paradise.
The new "Ski Touring Atlas, Salzburg - Berchtesgaden" is an indispensible companion for anyone wanting to set out on their own to discover our wintery alpine world. Beginners and experienced high-alpinists are assured of finding the perfect route from amongst the 550 routes which are presented.
18 regions, 110 map details, detailed tour descriptions and an introduction to avalanche safety.
