Snow slider in Switzerland.For the mountaineer Hans Steinbichler from Chiemgau, who knew the western Alps very well, the Bishorn is the most beautiful ski-4000m-summit although it stands in the shadow of the Weisshorn. Because of the ski-mountaineering, the Bishorn got a second climbing season in spring.

The Bishorn is an often visited 4000m-peak with 2 summits:
# W-summit: 4153 m (snow)
# E-summit: 4135 m (rock)
It is located on the extreme end of the north spur of the Weisshorn. There are different reasons for its popularity:

1. The magical limit of 4000 m.
2. The short and unproblematic ascent on the glacier from the highly located Tracuithtte.
3. The wonderful view, especially to the Weisshorn-N-rigde. ...more
