Winter walking & snowshoe
hiking in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl

Winter Hiking
Routes

White, whiter, whitest is everything you will see…

Really big eyes for all winter hikers in the rear Ötztal: the pace is excellent to admire the unspoilt beauty of the Alpine mountains and landscapes. 12 km of cleared, signposted winter walking trails lead through snow-covered stone pine forests, white meadows and along the frozen Gurgler Ache brook. Take an even deeper insight into marvelous backcountry areas on guided snowshoeing adventures.

2. PARTNER CHECK BEFORE STARTING

Double-check your knots, harness buckle, belay system and the end of the rope.
