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.

From the Martin-Busch-Hut the most beautiful climb over the Marzellkamm. Shortly inland to a stable bridge over the Niederjochbach and over marked trail to the Marzellkamm. Over the ridge to the beginning of the Niederjochfernser and further over the glacier (columns!) Up to the steeeriger Gipfelaufschwung. Now either over Firn or at icing better right over rocks on the ridge and over this, the last meters exposed, over to the summit cross.
