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.

The walk starts from the soccer field in Huben and leads to the Polles Alm. From the starting point you follow the wide forest path in the direction of Alpengasthof am Feuerstein. After about 3 km, the path continues to the right past the small chapel in the direction of Polles Alm. The path initially falls off a bit, but then continues to ascend into the Pollestal. To the left of the path you can hear the water of the Pollesschlucht. In front of the hut, the trail rises again until it leads flat to Polles Alm.

 

Author’s recommendation

The first part of the hike can also be done via the legend trail. Display boards and sculptures tell 14 different legends of the Ötztal.
