The tour

From Gleiming you take Reiteralm cable-car "Silver Jet" and then continue via "Gasselhöhe" chairlift to Reiteralm. From the top of the chairlift you start snow shoeing to the South. A first easy ascent takes you uphill before the second ascent - which is a bit steeper - brings you up to the summit of Gasselhöhe mountain. At the wooden cross on top you enjoy the views of Schladming Tauern mountain range and the Dachstein massif as well as of the Ennstal valley.

Turn-by-turn directions

Von Gleiming fährst du mit der Gondelbahn Silver-Jet und der 6er-Sesselbahn Gasselhöhe auf die Reiteralm. Von der Bergstation der Sesselbahn startest du mit den Schneeschuhen Richtung Süden. Ein erster leichter Anstieg bringt dich auf eine kleine Anhöhe bevor der weitere Anstieg zur Gassehöhe beginnt. Am Gipfelkreuz der Gasselhöhe angekommen genießt du den wunderbaren Ausblick auf die Schladminger Tauern, das Dachstein-Massiv und das Ennstal.
