Ski tour to Mount Al Giogo

Easy tour on a highly frequented 2,405 m high summit above Terento, with view on the Fundres Mountains

In order to get to the starting point of this tour, we drive to the sunny village of Terento (Terenten). After the end of Terento village (on the road to Brunico), we take a turn-off on the left, following the indication "Gasthof Nunewieser", after about 3 km we reach the parking space at the mountain tavern. From the parking space we walk to the right across the meadows, along the edge of the forest, directly into the forest. The way is moderately steeps and we walk along a narrow trail, twice we traverse the forested road, which is a toboggan run in winter.

When the forest clears up, we reach the Pertinger Mountain Hut (Pertinger Alm, 1,861 m a.s.l.). We leave this mountain hut behind and traverse a steep meadow straight through, in front of the mountain hut. Soon we reach the Upper Pertinger Mountain Hut (Obere Pertinger Alm/Hühnerspiel) at 2,000 m a.s.l., which is not open. This is where the summit slope begins in the open country, and where also a nice toboggan run starts. The last 400 m are still in front of us, and we start walking towards the cross at the summit of Mt. Al Giogo (Terner Jöchl, 2,045 m a.s.l.), providing by the way a great view on the Fundres Mountains and farther.

For skiing down, this mountain offers vast terrain, due to the fact that it is a relatively secure tour and well-frequented, often the slope at the top seems a ski slope. Those who are not skiing experts can ski down the forested trail (toboggan run) in the lower section. Relatively easy tour in the Fundres Mountains, which is highly frequented. Possibility to stop at the Pertinger Mountain Hut (only in the weekend). This is also where the toboggan run starts.
