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 parking spot at the end of Gries is your starting point. A slightly ascending forest trail takes you up to Vordere Sulztalam and further on to Hintere Sulztalalm – the last 20 minutes up to Amberger Hütte are quite steep and demanding. Below the hut you find a small mountain lake with a sulfur spring.
