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.

Follow the signposts to "Ötztaler Fun Park" in Huben and walk past the water park. Here you take the cart trail up to Polltalalm and Breitlehnalm. A switch-backing route winds its way up to the forest on 13 kilometers. At about 2/3 of the hike the path forks-off and you leave the route to Polltalalm and Breitlehnalm, heading southwards across wonderful Alpine rose and heather meadows, blueberry and bilberry fields to lofty Hahlkogelhaus hut. A level path travels southwards to a wide open right-hand turn, merging into a steep green slope. You reach the peak after conquering a couple of rocky and fairly precipitous sections.
