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.

Starting point of Windach Enduro Route: Freizeit Arena. Here you follow asphalt road - past the Old People's Home - to the hamlet of Granbichl where the trail continues on a forest road. Always continue on the gravel trail along the Enduro Trail signposts "B" until you get to Lochle Alm where you leave Windachtal valley on the approx. 1 km long Lochle Alm Trail (6014). Lochle Alm Trail from Windachtal towards Kleble Alm is quite flowing but features also short and steep ascents. At the end of the trail you have reached the highest point of the tour and the start of the downhill track on Kleble Alm Trail (699).

The exciting downhill ride on Kleble Alm Trail offers a perfect blend of flow trail and challenging route for technically skilled bikers. The upper part has some wet and tricky passages, followed by truly flowing sections. The central part, which is very challenging again, crisscrosses the forest trail several times. If this intermediate route seems too difficult you can bypass it on the forest trail. However, the forest trail takes you back to the village center on the asphalt road. 

Author’s recommendation

Enjoy the peace and quiet of Sölden's Silent Part, far away from mountain lifts and gondolas. Unspoilt nature in abundance just perfect to restore your energy.
