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.

Walk from Obergurgl across Achbrücke bridge and along the steep trail leading up to "Beil" area. Continue hiking past lush meadows and flowers in full bloom, overlooking the picture-book Alpine valleys. The high elevation trail takes you to Gurgl's pasturelands and Küppele Schäferhütte. Here you continue on the steeply climbing path until you reach the two "Herrenbäche" mountain brooks. Keep to the right at the height of the former goods lift, following the switch-backing route up to "Köpfele" peak where you find the serviced Ramolhaus.

Turn-by-turn directions

Variant 1: From Obergurgl via the Achbrücke, a steep climb to the "ax", then a flowery and promising high mountain promenade across the Hochmähder of the Gurlger farmers to the Küppele-Schäferhütte. From there, first rope-climbing, then again moderately ascending to the two "Herrenbächen". From the former material cableway, the path turns to the right in steep turns to the "Kopfle" on which the farmed Ramolhaus stands.  

 

Variant 2: From Vent through the magnificent Zirbenwald to the Ramolalm, from there a steep ascent to Ramoljoch (3.200 m). The descent leads over rocks (rope protection, steps in the rock) to Ramolferner and further about 30 minutes walk to the hut. This tour is recommended only in good weather and appropriate alpine equipment.
