Rossstock is an often-undertaken ski tour, so in most cases you will find a track. The summit ridge is technically easy, but if it is icy, caution is advised. As the ascent to Rossstock is short, you can add another summit nearby, e.g. Hagelstock. The descent is best, if there is sufficient snow to ski down to Riemenstaldertal.
