Snowshoe hiking & winter walking

Step by step towards a holistic experience

The hiking paradise of Sölden also has a marvelous winter season: 49.5 km of cleared, signposted winter hiking trails take walkers straight through snow-covered forests, white meadows and along Ötztaler Ache mountain brook. Adventure-seeking vacationers grab their snowshoes and listen to the crunching snow under their feet while lively Sölden disappears in the background. Trudging  through the untouched white either on your own or accompanied by a local guide you will take new insights on the way to rustic mountain huts.

Safety information

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.

 

6. NO ROPE ON ROPE CONTACT

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.

 

8. FULL ATTENTION WHILE BELAYING

The life of your partner is in your hands.
