Highest and most panoramic ski tour peak in the Melchsee-Frutt ski area (WS).

The Rotsandnollen is a good destination when there is still or already little snow at lower altitudes. Thanks to the ski area's cable cars, you can start the tour at 1900 m and ski down to the valley on the prepared piste. Although you only have to cover 800 metres of altitude to reach the summit, you have to reckon with an ascent of 3-3:30 hours due to the considerable distance. This effort is rewarded with a first-class panorama, as the Rotsandnollen is the highest peak between Melchtal and Engelberger Tal. The view stretches from the nearby Titlis to the Bernese Alps with the Finsteraarhorn and Eiger.
