    Arrival/Starting Point: From Curon (Graun), head into Valle Lunga (Langtauferertal) Valley as far as Kapron, then turn right down to the nearest farmstead, which is called Perwarg and situated at 1,687 metres.

    Ascent: From Perward Farm (1,687 m) at Kapron, first head east and then south along the Alm access road (also a sled run) that goes up to Ochsenbergalm pastures, at the entrance of the mountain valley by the same name. We recommend that you continue into the valley only if the avalanche conditions are good and you have a lot of experience in the mountains. Here, the route is quite clear. You’ll continue south through the relatively flat valley, to a marked narrowing. From there, follow the route back.

    Please Note: the Maseben Ski Area will remain closed during the 2014/2015 winter season.
