Snowshoe hiking on the Ötscher

On the road with the bear paws

We are one snowshoe trail richer... in addition to our offer for skiers, since the winter season 19/20 there is also a snowshoe trail on the Great Ötscher with us.

With the double chairlift Großer Ötscher and the snowshoes in your luggage, you can easily get to the starting point of the snowshoe hike "Hüttenkogel".

A route laid out in serpentines - with 2 km total length and about 120 meters of altitude. Ideal for beginners and those who want to breathe fresh mountain air at 1,425 m.

After the pleasant hike, you can strengthen yourself in the Ötscher Schutzhaus and warm up with a hot cup of mulled wine.
