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.

Enduro Route Stille Seite - C starts at Freizeit Arena, traveling right across Sölden along the Ötztaler Ache river to the base station of Gaislachkogl Mountain Gondola. Continue on the road past the campsite, cross the bridge and pedal uphill to the hamlet of Moos. Leaving behind quaint Moosalm you reach the forest road leading also along Route Brunnenbergalm (652). Approx. 1 km before you get to Brunnenbergalm you must keep to the left, leaving Route 652 and following the "Enduro C" signs to the access point of Jägers Notweg Trail (673)

First you take the completely overgrown trail before you reach the single trail – one of the most difficult natural trails of the entire Bike Republic Sölden. It is rated S3 from start to finish, comprising also a couple of S4 passages: steep hairpin turns, rock-strewn terrain, wet and slippery surface ... a true challenge for experts who can try NOT to touch the ground with their feet!

After crossing Windach Ache brooklet a climbing path takes you up to a forest trail and towards the entrance to Windachtal Trail (6000). Follow Windach Trail until you get back to the forest road that takes you to the village center of Sölden. 

Author’s recommendation

Those who can conquer Jägers Notweg Trail without major difficulties are true experts - it is suitable only for very experienced bikers in an excellent physical shape. Adrenalin rush guaranteed!
