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.

Climbing Rules:

1. GET FAMILIAR WITH THE EQUIPMENT

Use only standardized mountain sports equipment (CE-sign) & study instructions for use.

 

2. PARTNER CHECK BEFORE STARTING

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

 

3. LET THE PARTNER KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON

Communication prevents misunderstandings, let your belayer know when he has to take your weight on the rope.

 

4. ACT RESPECTFULLY

Respect other climbers & inform them of mistakes and dangers. Stick to climbing bans.

 

5. PROTECT YOUR HEAD

A helmet prevents head injuries in case of falling rocks & if you fall.

Always use metal karabiners for rappelling. Never use two ropes in one karabiner / toprope link plate.

 

7. WARM UP BEFORE STARTING TO CLIMB

Warm-up climbing protects your joints, tendons and muscles.

The life of your partner is in your hands.
