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.

The starting point is in Vent 1,900 m at the exit Rofen P9. From there we walk 500 m along the ski slope . After about 500 m the path goes on the right.

 On the way there are always cozy seating areas that are perfectly positioned, offering a wonderful view of the mountain village located in the valley basin. After about 1 hour the path leads us into the valley and after half an hour we reach the beautiful Stableinalm at 2.356 m , The magnificent sun terrace offers an incredible view of the Rofental and the mighty Ötztal mountains.

At the restaurant we enjoy a perfect lunch. 

After we have drunk our coffee on the panoramic terrace and have a last look at the magnificent panorama, we borrow a toboggan and curves into the valley.

The toboggan Stablein is well prepared and for young and old a real experience.

Especially recommended for families. For those who want to experience the winter, in Vent is a 5 km long, well-groomed natural toboggan run available. This fun toboggan ride including a stop at the Stableinalm is great fun for all ages.

Author’s recommendation

Recommended:

a ride up and down with the new 6-seater chairlift Wildes Mannle on 2.646. At the mountain station, we have a tremendous view of the Rofental and the surrounding Ötztal mountains.
