Feldalphorn is one of the easiest skiing summits in the Kitzbühel Alps. Especially for beginners and to start our 4-day crossing, it’s the perfect mountain. Most ski tourers choose to ascend from Wildschönau, so our ascent from Kelchsau is definitely the quieter option. The crossing to Schwaigerberghorn is easy and makes the tour a perfect all-day venture.
