Snowshoeing in Grossarltal
Snowshoe hikes

Admittedly, it’s a little strenuous when you first start out, trudging through the virgin snow with snowshoes on your feet, pushing your way forward with the help of telescopic hiking poles. That said, practically no other sport allows you to enjoy the pristine winter countryside to this extent.


Trees coated in snow, wind-blown cliffs sculpted into bizarre shapes, and perhaps catching sight of a solitary chamois or a whole herd of deer. And awaiting you up above the tree line is the virtually endless panorama of the countless speaks of the Hohe and Niedere Tauern mountains.

NEW 2016/2017: The Loosbühelalm opens also in winter (days off: Monday and Tuesday).

You can rent out all of your snowshoeing equipment from local sporting goods stores in Grossarltal.
Rules for Snowshoeing
Snowshoe hike

Similar to ski touring, snowshoers need to follow certain rules. You have to possess some basic skills, including knowing how to select the right route and the right time of day, understanding snow and weather conditions, as well as how to behave safely in the backcountry. All are absolute musts! 

Please also pay attention to current avalanche conditions and obtain risk forecasts from the Salzburg Avalanche Warning Center.
