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.

This flowing trail forks off to the left after a rolling part close to the middle station of Gaislachkogl Mountain Gondola. The beautiful route, interspersed with pebbles and little rocks, climbs and descends moderately. Unfortunately, the trail is not that long! Professional bikers and photographers appreciate it for its splendid panoramic spots. Be careful on all Natural Trails: Always watch out for walkers and hikers!

The blue Bartiges Bödele Trail, linking the middle station of Gaislachkogl Mountain Gondola and Rettenbachtal valley, forks into the Glacier Road.

Author’s recommendation

This trail can be perfectly combined with further routes like Rettenbachalm / blue trail (675) and Leiterberg / red trail (672). Note: one of the most scenic trails within the entire BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN.
