The trend sport of the last winter is once again very popular this winter. On ski tours you can explore the winter landscape of the Allgäu far away from the groomed slopes. The Nagefluhkette and especially the Hochgrat are perfect for experienced ski touring enthusiasts. For beginners and shorter routes, the easy route from the mountain Mittag via the Bärenköpfle to the Steineberg is recommended.
