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.

As one of the most rustic alpine pastures of the Ötztal with the added feature of the "afternoon lake", the "Stallwies", as the Ötztaler call their pastures, is a destination for the whole year. This means: For each individual day, because the Stallwies has open all year round. Locals also like to take a trip to the Stallwies. From the Freizeit Arena Sölden, you go along Granbichlstraße (Granbichl district) to the Windach Valley. The Forststraße leads through the light pine forest and with every meter of height the prospects of the opposing mountain range of the Geigenkamm are more exciting. Gradually the forest clears up and opens onto a wide alpine meadow with old huts of dark wood. The with the beautiful Sonnenterrasse, which is the Stallwies (1.850 m). From here, with a good cup of coffee and from a safe distance, the hectic bustle on the slopes of the slope can be observed. "We have sunshine in the winter until half past four in the afternoon because we are so high above," says Maria. She is part of the host family Fiegl and says: "The house is already 350 years old". This makes you curious, a look inside: old wood is simply the most beautiful jewelery. And if the sun does not shine, it sits at the simple white fireplace on bad weather days. You can also go back on the forest road with the toboggan.
