Snowshoeing adventures

through the winter countryside

Initially, it might be a tad challenging as you trudge through the untouched snow with snowshoes strapped to your feet and telescopic poles in hand. Yet, few activities bring you into such intimate contact with the pristine winter wilderness.

Snowshoeing through Grossarltal

Picture this: trees heavy with snow, wind-sculpted rocks forming bizarre silhouettes, and perhaps the glimpse of a stag, a chamois, or a herd of deer in the distance. Then, as you ascend above the treeline, you're rewarded with an expansive panorama that unveils the countless peaks of the Hohe und Niedere Tauern ranges.

The Loosbühelalm is also open in winter.

All the snowshoeing equipment you might need is available for rental at local sports shops here in Grossarltal.

Rules for snowshoers

Similar to ski touring, snowshoeing comes with its own set of guidelines. Selecting the right route, choosing the appropriate time of day, understanding the weather patterns and snow conditions, and knowing how to behave in open terrain are all essential skills every snowshoer should possess.

Always keep abreast of current avalanche conditions and follow the advice of the Salzburg Avalanche Warning Service.
