Snowshoeing & winter walking

In Tyrol’s Stubai Valley

Walking in winter is so invigorating! Rejuvenate mind, body and soul away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, become one with nature, and experience a very special side to winter. Set out on one of our many winter hiking trails to explore the Stubai Valley, or strap on your snowshoes to get off the beaten path and see the region from a different perspective. Discover our natural winter landscapes on your own, or let the local guides show you some of the best beauty spots and rustic huts that can only be reached in winter by snowshoeing.

Snowshoeing for beginners

Make the Most of Your Hike:

  • Wear sturdy, water-resistant boots (ideally mountaineering boots) and lots of layers so you can stay warm and dry in all weathers.
  • Pack a dry top so you can get changed once you reach the summit and enjoy the views.
  • Important: only go in safe snow conditions! We recommend that you book an experienced guide to accompany you.

Snowshoeing for Everyone

Take it slowly and experience the mindful charm of an Alpine winter on over 80km of well-signposted winter walking trails. Allow the frozen waterfalls, snow-capped pines and sparkling ice crystals along the way to work their magic on your soul. It’s a wonderful way to make some brilliant winter memories to treasure and share. We will be delighted to recommend our favourite routes to you.

Buttermilchsteig Trail
From Plöven (Telfes) to Schlicker Boden, this trail takes you towards Galtalm through a snow-covered valley, allowing you to experience Stubai’s pristine natural world while still close to the ski slope. A refreshment break at the Gatalm hut rounds off your snowshoe hike along the Buttermilchsteig.

Langetal Valley
Enjoy the wild splendour of the mountains as you walk through the Langetal Valley to the Bsuchalm mountain hut. Experience the untouched winter landscape, see the chamois, and admire the view from the Tschangelair hut as you sip a hot cup of tea or mulled wine and leave your worries behind.

Auffang
From the Josef car park, take the Sommerweg trail towards Brandstattalm to the Auffangalm junction, then along the switchbacks to the hunters’ hut above Brandtstattalm. Find inner balance here, at the tree line, among patches of pine trees. The view of Neustift is staggering – and the toboggan run at the end is simply thrilling!
