The Aurina (Ahrntal) is a long valley north of the town of Brunico, on the southern border with Austria. Here the Alpi Aurine (Zillertaler Alpen) offer an infinite choice of great objectives for the ski-mountaineering enthusiasts. Vertical gain are quite significant (1400 – 2000 m and beyond), so that they can be carried out in the same day by a strong party of skiers; otheriwse a nice alternative is to overnight in a hut.
What we propose is just a small selection of itineraries; many other can be taken in consideration, according to the level of skill and fitness of the team. The basic programme described here foresees to set up the accomodation at an hotel or guesthouse near Campo Tures, as to optimize the daily transfers to the start point of each itinerary.
Most valleys in the area have few or no ski lifts at all, which makes this journey a bit more wild and adventureous.
- one or more days of steep skiing, mostly dedicated to the search of the steeper slopes and couloirs, for highly skilled skiers only;
- one or more days of high-tech ski-mountaineering, featuring the highest vertical gains and technical climbs, for expert ski-mountaineers.
