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.

Reserved to tough girls and boys on two wheels! ZAAHE LINE is a very challenging and stubborn trail, not easy to conquer - a quite tough adventure indeed. If you are in an excellent physical shape and if your biking skills are exceptional, then you can also choose the new Jump Line which forks-off from TEÄRE LINE (6003). Huge drops, rollers and steep turns are waiting for real biking aficionados and daredevils.
