Tips

  • Thorsten

    Every mountain biker who moves in the Alps should have driven or pushed over the Madritschjoch.

    The Madritschjoch is one of the highest crossings in the Alps. 3,123 meters. Here at the top you really have to reckon with everything and be well informed about the snow and weather situation beforehand. From Sulden you have to conquer 1,200 vertical meters until you are at the highest point.

    You have to reckon with sliding sections because on the one hand the air is getting thinner and on the other hand the path is getting steeper. If you have made it to the top, you have a magnificent view of the Ortler massif.

    The first 100 vertical meters on the single trail down into the Martell valley are quite difficult and many will have to push. After that, the trail becomes easier and you can enjoy the descent to mostly S1 level.

    Two huts offer the opportunity to absorb energy or to spend the night. The Schaubachhütte (schaubachhuette.it) in the driveway and the Zufallhütte (zufallhuette.com/de) in the descent.

    With 3123m the Madritschjoch should be for many mountain bikers one of the highest points of their touring career.
